Ingredients:

Salt, as needed

3/4 cup uncooked red or white quinoa

2 tablespoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons finely chopped, peeled ginger

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon peanut oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil

4 medium eggs

1 cup coarsely chopped kimchi

Sliced scallions, for serving

Crumbled dried seaweed snack sheets, for serving

 

Instructions:

  1. Bring 2 cups of salted water to a boil in a small pot and add the quinoa. Cover pot and let simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes longer. Fluff with a fork.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, and salt to taste. Then whisk in peanut and sesame oils.
  3. Bring a medium pot filled with water to a boil. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower eggs into water; boil 6 minutes. Transfer eggs immediately to a bowl of ice water to cool.
  4. Place ¼ of the quinoa in a bowl. Peel eggs and cut in half. Place two halves per serving. Add kimchi, scallions, and seaweed. Spoon soy-ginger dressing over bowl. Enjoy!
