You get your protein, your omega-3s and your fiber, and, in this case, you get it with the tang of pickled onion and the tart, zesty spice of mustard dressing.



  • 1/8 medium red onion
  • 1 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Organic Tricolor Quinoa
  • 1 pinch Salt, table
  • 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch Pepper, Coarse Black
  • 1/2 fruit without skin and seed Avocados, raw, California
  • 2 cups raw kale
  • 3/4 cup Yellow Squash
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 second Cooking Spray, Olive Oil
  • 2 medium whole tomato
  • 4 large egg white


1 Toss red onion or shallot in rice vinegar and let sit.
2 Boil 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Add quinoa and dash of salt. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until liquid is absorbed.
3 Mix mustard, lemon juice and olive oil until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Use 1 tsp of mixture to dress sliced avocado. Use remaining dressing to coat shredded kale (stems removed).
4 Use a double-boiler to steam thinly sliced squash. Then remove after 5 minutes, toss gently with 1 tsp melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
5 Heat a pan or cast-iron sizzle platter, moisten with olive oil cooking spray and place tomatoes cut side-down on the hot surface. Cook for 2 minutes, toss with salt and pepper, and reserve.
6 Warm a saucepan over low heat. Moisten with cooking spray then add egg whites. As eggs begin to set, use a spatula to gently pull the eggs across the pan to create large curds. Season with salt and pepper
7 Portion half of the quinoa, kale, squash, tomatoes and egg whites in two bowls, garnish with quick-pickled onions, and serve.
