Whooooo's hungry? Recipe below for this perfect summer quinoa, egg, and corn bowl; link in bio for more deets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 〰️In a large skillet over medium-low heat, heat olive oil. Add scallions, tomato, garlic, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are very soft and breaking down, about 25 minutes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 〰️In a medium, lidded saucepan, combine quinoa, stock, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook 15 minutes. Let stand, covered but off the heat, for 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff quinoa with a fork. Cover and set aside.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 〰️Fill a small saucepan with 5 inches of water and bring to a boil. When water is boiling, use a spoon to carefully drop eggs into water one at a time. With the water at a gentle boil, cook 6 minutes, then turn off heat and use a slotted spoon to pick eggs out of the water and drop them into a bowl of ice water. Let stand in ice water for at least 2 minutes, then carefully peel and cut in half.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 〰️To serve, top quinoa with tomatoes, eggs, and raw corn.

We 💜 @serenawillis sharing this super sweet moment with Olympia. 😭 "We have been braiding her hair for centuries. In many African tribes braided hairstyles were a unique way to identify each tribe. Because of the time it would take people would often take the time to socialize. It began with the elders braiding their children, then the children would watch and learn from them. The tradition of bonding was carried on for generations, and quickly made its way across the world. I honored to share this bonding experience with my own daughter and add another generation of historic traditions." @serenawillis
