Ingredients

Omelet:

¾ cup of cooked Lundberg Family Farms Tri-Colored Quinoa

3 eggs

2 tablespoons part skim low moisture mozzarella, grated

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

2 tablespoons fresh chives, cut into ½” long pieces

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

To Serve:

2 tablespoons sour cream

2 teaspoons pesto

Side Salad:

2 cups of mixed greens

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preparation

In a medium bowl beat eggs with salt and pepper until thoroughly combined.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Heat a medium sized non-stick skillet over medium heat until warm. Apply a thin layer of cooking spray to the pan and pour ¼ of the egg mixture into the pan.

Quickly spread mixture into a thin even circle and cook until light golden brown, about 30-60 seconds. Using a rubber spatula flip the omelet over and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds.

Transfer to plate and repeat steps 3 & 4 with remaining egg mixture.

Spread ½ tablespoon of sour cream and ½ teaspoon of pesto on each omelet, loosely roll omelet into a log.

In a medium bowl toss the mixed greens with olive oil and lemon juice until leaves are lightly coated.

Serve each omelet with ½ a cup of mixed greens. Garnish with additional chives, sour cream and pesto if desired.

Enjoy!
