Red Synthesis – Carnivore’s Corner October 19, 2013


Synthesis is a scientific process that involves a combination of specific elements joining in union to create a whole.  In the case of the recipe Red Synthesis, I collected a mouthful of bodacious ingredients to make this dish a winner across the boards.  The word “Red” describes three things–meat, quinoa and barbecue sauce.

I’m not a huge red meat eater, but I’m not exactly afraid of it either.  As long as you get a good, organic, lean version of red meat, you are safe.

Red quinoa is the same as regular except it has more of a festive appearance.  I”ll explain the nutrient content later on down the line.  That being said, let’s get to the recipe.


16 oz. organic or free range lean ground beef

1 c red quinoa

3 eggs

Drizzle of barbecue sauce


1. Drizzle some olive or coconut oil in a large frying pan and add ground beef. Turn heat up to medium high.

2. Add 1 c of quinoa and 2 c of water to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low and let simmer until water is absorbed.

3. Once beef has been browned, add quinoa and 3 eggs.

4. Fold ingredients in frying pan until all contents are browned and dry.

5. Remove from heat, add contents to a casserole dish and drizzle the top with barbecue sauce.  Mix thoroughly until you achieve an even blend.

Tips of the Trade

I’m a big fan of Annie’s Naturals Smoky Maple barbecue sauce, but choose what you like.  Just make sure you get a sauce with no HFCS or artificial additives.

For a change of pace, throw some pine nuts into the frying pan with the quinoa and eggs.  Trust me you won’t be sorry!

Ancient Harvest is a good quinoa company.  You can also find quinoa in the bulk sections of most health food stores.


You get a power-packed punch of protein, complex carbs and essential fats with Red Synthesis.  Additionally, red quinoa has a generous amount of iron for a non-meat item and also a handsome helping of phosphorus, which keeps your bones strong and teeth from falling out of your head.
