Egg salad, Cucumber Quinoa Bowl

Leave a comment

Craving a cucumber sandwich on this warm spring day and a mental scan of the fridge came up with this twist. Quinoa is a good replacement for the texture and filling qualities of bread.

Lots of crunch, fresh cool cucumber and carrots contrast the warm egg and mayo salad on top.


Scramble 2 eggs, cool a few minutes, then mix with 1 tbsp (15g) Mayo With Olive Oil. Place over cold bed of:

  • Carrots – Raw, 1 large, diced
  • Cucumber – Peeled, raw, 0.5 medium, diced
  • Generic Cooked – Quinoa, 1/4 cup-dry, prepared, cooled
