Easy Avocado Egg Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

This Easy Avocado Egg Quinoa Breakfast Bowl is a healthy and energizing way to start your day. The beautiful, nutrient-rich bowls are also perfect for a fast, vegetarian weeknight dinner! Best of all, it only takes about 20 minutes to make.
 

I just received my latest Degustabox, a surprise subscription food box company based in Barcelona. If you follow us on Instagram, you've already had a sneak peek at what I found in this month's box.

Of all the yummy treats in the box, I decided that the Goya Quinoa Blend looked perfect to build a meal around. It's got white quinoa, brown rice, and black beans so it's loaded with flavor, fiber, and protein. I figured that—with just a few of my favorite fresh ingredients—the Goya Quinoa Blend would be perfect for a nutritious and delicious breakfast bowl. Or breakfast-for-dinner. Or breakfast-for-lunch, for that matter.

Ingredients
serves 2 to 4
  • 1 box Goya Quinoa blend
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh pico de gallo
  • 1 avocado, sliced or chopped
  •  fresh lime juice, to taste

Prepare the Goya Quinoa Blend according to package directions; it takes about 15-17 minutes to cook. While it's cooking, prepare the rest of your ingredients. You can cook your eggs however you'd preferscrambled are fine, of course. But I pretty much always go for a fried or poached egg, because I like the yolk to run over all the other goodies. For this meal, I poached my eggs.
I've never quite gotten the hang of making legit poached eggs, so I used my handy dandy silicone egg poachers that kind of float in boiling water and make perfect, six-minute poached eggs. I don't pretend I'm a real chef, people!

Once the quinoa blend is cooked, stir in the chopped whites of the scallions. Then divide the quinoa blend between your bowls or plates. Top each with one or two eggs, some avocado, a tablespoon or two of pico de gallo, and the chopped scallion greens.


It's an incredibly easy, satisfying, and colorful meal. And it's ready to eat in about 20 minutes!
