Quinoa with Avocado, Edamame, and Poached Eggs

Protein Packed Dinner

What a protein-packed dinner!

Not only is this meal absolutely delicious, it is also probably the most filling meal I’ve ever made. Avocado, eggs, and quinoa? So filling! Not to mention it is a healthy and gluten free… and it is crazy easy to make. Keep reading for the recipe (serves one).


  • 1/2 avocado, pitted and sliced
  • 3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup of shelled edamame
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 2 poached eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste


Place the sliced avocado on the plate. Easy.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, shelled edamame, and olive oil using a spoon. Once the olive oil has coated the edamame and quinoa, pour the contents of the bowl onto the plate.

Top with the poached eggs (slice them so the yolk can coat the edamame-quinoa mixture) and then dust with the rosemary and freshly ground black pepper. Feel free to add more black pepper and some salt to your tasting pleasure!
