Sauteed Red Bell Pepper with Boiled Eggs over Quinoa
Hey Everyone, What a weekend it was here in California…..After a whole week of mist/fog and mostly gloomy week weather, we were greeted with a happy n bursting sunlight, just the perfect setting to meet-up with friends and after a long time got to spend the rest of the sunday lazying in pajama’s and watching Oscars in the evening…it was just a wonderful relaxed feeling…..and definitely wanted to keep the meal quick but tasty (As Taste Rule’s in our house)
Now, I usually keep hard boiled eggs (4-5) in the fridge for a quick snack and with that, this recipe was an easy peasy choice “Sauteed Red Bell Pepper with Eggs” and served with quinoa in individual bowls.
As it’s one of my favorite I made extra to eat just as snacks or meal later during the week. I usually cook this recipe with little vinegar and sugar as it helps onions caramelize which adds to the flavor of this dish and serving it with eggs just makes it a complete filling meal. I hope you make it soon 🙂
