Fried Egg over Quinoa with Avocado, Tomatoes, and Corn
Posted Jun 19 2013 10:09pm
My CSA box this week included some new Summer veggies. Very exciting. It’s always fun getting something you didn’t see in the previous week’s box.
Something elseÂ veryÂ exciting is my new favorite condiment. You all know I’ve had a sriracha obsession for the past year, but guys, it’s being replaced. The lovely folks atÂ Tabanero Â recently sent me a couple bottles of their hot sauce and I can’t get enough.
Tabanero is an all natural hot sauce that is tangy and zesty with a touch of sweetness. There are only 8 ingredients in each bottle: habanero peppers, carrots, onions, key lime juice, agave nectar, garlic, salt, and grapefruit seed extract. It’s spicy, but the heat is balanced out by the agave nectar and graprefruit. It’s definitely on the milder side and the flavor is so unique that it can be added to anything. Incorporating it into my lunch today was necessary.
This dish was inspired by my lovely friend Sarah, who recently started aÂ healthy food blog . She is a very clean eater and I enjoy seeing her kitchen creativity on both her blog and instagram. Yesterday she made an adult version of a “toad in hole” but used quinoa instead of toast. Genius. My lunch was very similar.
1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 tomato, chopped
1/4 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup fresh corn kernels
fresh basil, chopped
hot sauce (I used the new Tabanero!)
For very few ingredients and steps, I must admit that this is one of the best things I’ve made. I firmly believe it’s because I used fresh, local ingredients and the Tabanero sauce really pulled all the elements together. This would be great for any meal of the day. You have to try it! Some other suggestions would be to add black beans, cheese, or cilantro.
