Kaniwa Eggs

Kaniwa Eggs

     Who has heard of Baby Quinoa, raise your hand!?  If you have, then you will be familiar with the word Kaniwa...if you haven't then you might think I'm speaking Swahili...but I ain't.  Kaniwa is my new obsession, it's the hot new healthy food showing up around town (and is from South America not Africa).  This little grain is lightly sweet and very versatile, lunch, dinner or even breakfast.  Try out my Kaniwa Eggs and decide for yourself which time of day you will be hankering for my fun new find!  Each of the 2 servings are only 270 calories, 15g net carbs and 12g protein!  :)
Ingredients for 2 servings~
1/4 cup Kaniwa
1 cup Water
2 jumbo Eggs
4oz Avocado, sliced
Cherry Tomato, as garnish if desired
Sriracha, as garnish if desired
Boil Kaniwa per directions, should yield 1 cup.  Put 1/2 cup in each bowl.  Meanwhile, fry 2 Jumbo Eggs in Pam sprayed skillet, cook as desired.  Put one Egg in each bowl, add sliced Avocados evenly to each bowl, garnish with Tomatoes and Sriracha.  Enjoy  :)
