Triple Power Protein Breakfast

I always feel better when I eat a hot cooked breakfast so this morning I decided to make a stir fry with the left-over quinoa in the fridge.  Into the pan went onions, red and green peppers, and half a left-over Japanese eggplant which fried for a few minutes in soy sauce.  Then I added the triple protein element - cubed tofu, black beans and quinoa with a little vegetable stock.  I ended up throwing in a few spices to add a little more flavour but as usual I used too much turmeric which made the dish slightly bitter.  It was still very tasty and a very good start to the day accompanied by a fresh fruite smoothie! 


  1. I love this kind of breakfast! I always have a pot of cooked quinoa in my fridge ready for action.

  2. I am impressed! I am not so adventurous at breakfast time -- I stick with pbj on most days. It looks good for a quick lunch, too.

  3. I love PBJ too but it doesn't give me enough energy. I find this type of breakfast lasts a little longer.

  4. My husband has always and will always eat bread for breakfast. He's a good German! He hates American bread, so we are always looking for the "good" bread.

    I could go for your quinoa dish with fruit in it! :)

  5. On the weekends we like to buy fresh whole grain baguette as a treat.

    I know there are lots of recipes with quinoa and fruit in a porridge type dish. I've never tried it like that but I'm sure it's good.
