Breakfast Quinoa Bowl

Cooked grains + protein + veggies + eggs; with this simple equation, you’re only minutes away from a tasty, filling and healthful breakfast. In this version, which comes to us from our friends at Chester County Food Bank, we start with a layer of protein-packed quinoa, then add black beans, fresh tomatoes, a sunny-side-up egg, parsley and hot sauce. But feel free to choose your own breakfast bowl adventure!

Other awesome combos that come to mind are:

  • Brown rice, sauteed tofu, bok choi, cilantro, soft-boiled egg
  • Farro, white beans, zucchini, basil, fried egg
  • Bulgur, chickpeas, cucumbers, Italian parsley, hard-boiled egg

Honestly, nearly any combo of ingredients can work! Take a look in your fridge, and we’d bet you could put a tasty breakfast bowl together right now.
