what you'll need

2 cups arugula (or as much as you'd like)
1 cup quinoa

sea salt


  • preheat oven to 350

  • fill a pot of water 1/2 way full
  • heat pot to high + bring water to a boil
  • once water boils place eggs in for 10 mins (I put eggs in with a spoon so they didn't crack)
  • remove from heat, drain + fill with cold water- let sit for few min
  • cook quinoa according to package (I used a rice cooker!)
