Southwest Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

with No Comments

I don’t know about you but breakfast can get pretty boring these days. And, while I have plenty of greens and frozen berries in my fridge, some mornings I find myself unwilling to make a smoothie. So, inspired by a breakfast I had at Heartwood, a local coffee shop, I decided it was time to try my own breakfast bowl.

The secret to this breakfast bowl is making a big batch of quinoa for the week. Then, you just take a scoop out each morning. Easy.

I used a cup of cooked quinoa, but that makes for a pretty hefty bowl, so 1/2 cup is probably just enough.

Southwest Quinoa Breakfast Bowl


  • 1/2 – 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 hard boiled eggs sliced
  • 1/2 avocado sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp salsa
  • 1/2 jalapeño sliced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • salt
  • pepper

Throw all of your ingredients in a bowl and top with seasoning to taste  I end up mixing it all together.

If you plan to have this often make a large batch of quinoa and boil a bunch of eggs for the week.  Then this is super easy each morning and such a treat!  After all, breakfast doesn’t have to be boring 🙂
