Rinse quinoa in a sieve. Put quinoa and 1¼ cups of water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer on low heat for 12-15 minutes or until water has been absorbed. Remove pan from the heat and set aside, covered, to keep warm.


Meanwhile, poach eggs in barely simmering water which has vinegar in it. Transfer poached eggs to a shallow bowl of warm
water to keep warm. Alternatively, you can fry or soft-boil eggs.


Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add asparagus and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until tender. Season with salt and pepper.


Add kale and spinach and cook, turning leaves, for about 1 minute or until beginning to wilt. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a large bowl. Add quinoa and feta and stir until just combined. Spoon into serving bowls. Top with avocado and sprinkle with chilli flakes, if using.
