Cook Time: 15 minutes.
Okay guys, so I had a few interesting questions over the weekend and sorry to keep you waiting, but over the past couple days I’ve been a bit ill. But now I’m back on track and into our next recipe! One question I got a couple times was if I could make another example of how quinoa can be cooked. Another was what do I do with so much Kimchi?
So, in the end I decided to show you guys a recipe that will power you up! This Korean Power Bowl is perfect for a late breakfast, lunch and even dinner. It’s great after a workout, and is around 300 calories per serving, so is an amazing help in losing weight. It’s filling too! In this recipe I always use my batch of Kimchi for it. I always have some in my fridge so if you haven’t made it beforehand, I recommend getting some from the store, as the fermentation process alone can take a while.
For 4 servings, you will need:
- 1 c. White Quinoa (to cook with the broth)
- 2 c. Vegetable Broth
- 2 ts. Fresh Garlic (minced)
- 1/2 ts. Fresh Ginger (grated)
- 1/4 c. Green Onions (thinly sliced)
- 2 c. Fresh Purple Kale (thinly sliced)
- 4 Fresh Eggs
- 2 ts. Soy Sauce
- 2 ts. Toasted Sesame Oil
- 1 c. Kimchi
- 2 ts. Kimchi Juice (from the jar)
- Sour Cream
- Sea Salt + Pepper
- Sriracha (if needed)
In a medium saucepan cover and cook the quinoa + broth on high until it starts to boil. Turn heat to low and stir often for 10 minutes or until broth has been absorbed. Remove from heat.
While quinoa is cooking, heat a large skillet to medium heat. Slice the green onions and put them in a small bowl. In a separate small bowl, place the ginger + garlic. And in another small bowl, place the soy sauce + kimchi juice. In a medium bowl place the kimchi + kale.
Add the ginger + garlic to the skillet when heated. Saute for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the kimchi + kale and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the soy sauce + kimchi juice. Cover, remove from heat, and set aside.
In a small skillet, cook the eggs over easy, around 3-5 minutes.
In the bowls you will be using to serve, separate the quinoa into 4 bowls. Add the kale mixture into each bowl on top of the quinoa. Then add one egg to each. Garnish with green onion and a small dollop of sour cream, if you desire, and if the Kimchi isn’t spicy enough for you, add some sriracha! Enjoy!! 🙂
Eggs are great for your heart health! Due their omega 3-fatty acids they reduce your risk of heart disease, disease in general, and help regulate and lower cholesterol. They improve eye health, aid in weight loss, and maintain liver function as well as brain health. Plus they keep your skin healthy! Is there any reason why eggs shouldn’t be in your diet? They’re so easy to cook too!
