To cook sprouted quinoa, heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Rinse quinoa in a small mesh strainer. Once oil is hot, add quinoa to the saucepan and stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted. Add 1 cup water; turn the heat to high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add chopped onion; let it cook for a few minutes, stirring often. Add bell pepper, jalapeño, and garlic; cook until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and stir immediately, letting it wilt slightly. Turn the heat off.
In a large bowl, add cooked sprouted black beans; mash with a fork, leaving some texture. Add cooked sprouted quinoa, sautéed vegetables, salt, paprika, cumin, pepper, cayenne, and reserved eggs. Mix until combined, then add sprouted oat flour. Stir.
