Health has a new shape and it’s round in form. With juice fads and crazy diets, it’s impossible to know what’s truly healthy or what is substantially necessary for your diet. What I do know however is how fulfilling it is to create something with little time and ease and in a way that doesn’t break the bank. Stay tuned for more posts about my favorite bowls; something sweet and savory for everyone.
Today’s bowl: Veggie Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
yield: 1 serving
1/2 cup of quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
broccoli, cut into florets
cheddar cheese, grated
salt & pepper, to taste
Heat a little bit of olive oil in a pan over medium high. Add broccoli and mushrooms, and stir-fry until cooked (around 5 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
Combine milk, water, and quinoa in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring regularly*, until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Add vegetables, cheese, and salt & pepper to the pot of quinoa and stir to combine. Cover and set aside.
Fry a sunny side–up egg.
Transfer the quinoa to a bowl, then top with the egg.
