Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 1/4 cup homemade pesto
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup fresh kale leaves
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by adding the eggs to a small saucepan with 1 inch of water in the bottom. Bring the water to a boil, cover the pot and reduce to simmer for 5 – 6 minutes.
  2. While the eggs are cooking, add all the pesto ingredients to a food processor. Process until almost smooth (no large chunks wanted here!).
  3. When eggs are done cooking, rinse them under cold water to stop the cooking process. Let stand in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes.
  4. Prepare your breakfast bowls: add 1 cup quinoa, half of the avocado thinly sliced and half the pesto.
  5. When eggs have cooled, peel them and slice in half. Add to the bowl and sprinkle with half the hemp and chia seeds.
  6. Enjoy as is, season with a touch more salt and pepper, or mix it all together (that’s what I did and yum!).
