Savory Quinoa Breakfast Bowl


  • Quinoa
  • ¾ cups water
  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Kale
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt

  • Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 soft-boiled egg


  1. Combine water, quinoa, oregano, 1 clove garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan, and simmer until quinoa is cooked, about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir kale, 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt together in a bowl. Massage kale with your hands until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute tomatoes, garlic clove, and salt in hot skillet until tomatoes are charred and bursting, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Place quinoa in a bowl and top with kale, tomatoes, avocado slices, and egg.
Mealthy tip:

For perfect soft boiled eggs, bring enough water to cover the eggs to a boil. Reduce heat and carefully add the eggs. Simmer for 7-9 minutes, depending on the size of the egg. Transfer to an ice bath until chilled. Make the quinoa ahead of time for a quick breakfast!

I am new to the savory breakfast dishes, but I love it! I used spinach instead of kale, and a fried egg instead of soft boiled. It was really delicious and filling. The perfect way to start my morning!

I'm addicted to this savory quinoa breakfast bowl! I love the garlicky flavor with the avocado. I also sometimes like to use a fried egg instead of soft boiled. So simple and delicious.

I used oatmeal instead of quinoa and pressure cooked soft boiled eggs. Perfect weekend breakfast recipe.

I love savory breakfast bowls! I've made this with oatmeal instead of quinoa. I also topped it with feta cheese.

Made the soft boiled eggs in my pressure cooker and they turned out perfect. When I'm running short on time, I skip the egg all together and serve it with just quinoa. Iusually make the quinoa the night before so that in the morning it's simply grab and go.
