Breakfast at Sunset

Breakfast food is some of my favorite food out there! I have made this dish a million times before but always added chicken or some other meat to make it a “Dinner.” It wasn’t until I started drinking superfood shakes for my breakfast that I began incorporating eggs into other meals and realized they were “eggcellent” with this dish (mom humor full force).

Something I have changed over the years is cooking the quinoa with Bone broth. Not only does it bring more flavor to the quinoa, but you are also getting all those added nutrients like calcium, magnesium and other minerals. Plus you are getting some vitamins and added collagen. This dish is a little more clean up than my other dishes, but it is worth it because kids seem to LOVE it! Can’t beat being toddler and pre-teen approved! Enjoy!

What You Need

  • 1 Cup Quinoa, rinsed

  • 2 Cups Bone Broth

  • 1 Can Black Beans, drained and rinsed

  • 8 Cups Packed Spinach

  • 4 Eggs

  • 1 Avocado, Sliced

  • Cheddar Cheese, grated

  • Grass Fed Butter

  • Sea Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper

  • Salsa

What You Do

  1. In Pot with lid, add quinoa and bone broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add 4 cups of spinach to top and mix in well. cover with lid and turn down to a simmer. Let cook for about 15-20 minutes (or until there is no longer liquid in pot).

  2. While quinoa is cooking add drained beans to small pot and cook over medium low. 

  3. Once quinoa is ready, turn off heat and keep covered.  

  4. Take a frying pan and warm over medium heat, add a little butter to coat. Once butter has melted, crack 2 eggs and add them to pan. Add a dash of salt to each. Cover With concave pot lid and cook for about a minute or two. (Until whites cooked, but yolk still runny).

  5. While eggs cook, plate two dishes. Add 1 Cup spinach to each bowl. Then add quinoa and beans. Once Eggs are cooked, place 1 egg in each bowl. 

  6. Repeat step 4 and 5.

  7. Take your 4 dishes and add avocado, cheese and salsa and anymore pepper as desired. Cheers!

Tips

Using a large frying pan is a great option, but I still have only been able to get three eggs at once done due to the lid coverage… Using Cotija cheese instead of cheddar gives this dish a nice twist. Add diced onion for a little extra healthy love.
