eggs and kale for scramble

If you have cooked quinoa on had, this recipe takes just a few minutes to make. I like using red quinoa because it looks jeweled and beautiful against the scrambled eggs.

Dried herbs, chipotle peppers, tabasco sauce, curry powder will all be great seasonings for this quinoa and egg scramble.
