      Very clever to add quinoa to eggs...lots of protein and an interesting texture! This was so good that I (can't believe I'm writing this) will try it without the cheese next time, to save on the fat grams. I will increase my star rating if you want to make the directions easier. Step #1 should be omitted since the quinoa is already cooked. In #3, garlic is mentioned and spinach mentioned in Step #4, but neither is in the ingredients. I wasn't sure so used spinach as the 1/2 cup vegetable. Also I only used 1/4 cup cheese...assume the 1 cup swiss was a typo. A very adaptable recipe; most of the flavor in my version came from the salsa.
