How to make a tasty breakfast burrito recipe
Tasty Breakfast Burrito
If your quinoa is not already pre-cooked, add 1/2 cup of dry quinoa to a bowl, cover with cold water, add a cover, and let soak for 2 minutes. This helps remove the outer shell.
Add quinoa to a fine strainer and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds.
In a pot, add 1 cup of water, a dash of sea salt, and the quinoa. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to medium low heat simmer, and cover the pot. Wait 15 minutes, checking throughout. Once most of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, remove from heat and allow it to sit, covered, for 5 minutes.
Use a fork to fluff up the quinoa and set aside 1/4 cup for this recipe, while placing the rest in tupperware, and storing it in the fridge for other recipes.
Next, add 2 strips of bacon to a frying pan heated over medium heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side under crispy and brown.
Place the bacon on a paper towel lined plate and dab to remove the excess bacon grease.
Next, crack 4 whole eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk together.
Dice up 1/4 cup of red onion and 1 cup of spinach into bite sized pieces.
Add 1 tbsp of avocado oil to a frying pan over medium heat, then add the onion and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
Add the eggs on top of the onions, then the spinach, a 1/4 cup of the cooked quinoa, scramble together, and cook for another minute until the eggs set.
Dice up the bacon in bite sized pieces and add to the egg mixture.
Add a tortilla to a plate and top with 1/2 of the egg mixture. If you don't want a tortilla, simply add 1/2 the egg mixture to a plate.
Top with 1/8 cup of salsa, 1/4 of chopped avocado, and 1/2 the cilantro.
Wrap up the breakfast burrito and enjoy.
