Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 2 eggs, your way - any style
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, or whatever mushrooms you like
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Prep the ingredients: dice the sweet potato into 1/2 cubes, slice the tomatoes, roughly chop the basil, and slice the radishes.
  • Toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, then spread them out evenly on a foiled baking sheet. Bake for 10-20 minutes or until they are tender enough to poke with a fork.
  • Cook the quinoa according to package instructions.
  • While the quinoa is cooking, sauté the mushrooms with 1 tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and use the same pan to sauté the spinach for 1 minute - until it just starts to wilt. Remove it from the pan immediately and set aside.
  • Once the quinoa is finished cooking, heat the same pan you cooked the mushrooms and spinach in with 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Flatten the quinoa in the pan in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, (you might want to work in batches) and allow it to cook without touching for 3-5 minutes. When it begins to turn golden brown, toss the quinoa around the pan and arrange it in a flat layer again, cooking for another 3-5 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
  • Begin assembling the bowls by arranging the quinoa, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, spinach, radishes, and tomatoes in sections around the bowl.
  • Lastly, make the eggs so they are fresh and warm! I prefer mine poached or sunny side up, but any type of egg will work here. Then add them to the bowl with the fresh chopped basil.
