Pushing the boundaries of what conventional breakfasts look like, this savoury bowl of kale and quinoa goodness could replace your morning porridge oats. Filled with all my favourite breakfast components; eggs, avocado and halloumi this green breakfast bowl ticks so many of my boxes.
Green Breakfast Bowl
:: Ingredients ::
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 20g (3⁄4oz/scant 1⁄4 cup) raw almonds, roughly chopped
- 20g (3⁄4oz/scant 1⁄4 cup) pumpkin seeds
- 20g (3⁄4oz/scant 1⁄4 cup) sunflower seeds
- 100g (31⁄2oz/1 cup) cooked quinoa
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt
- 150g (5oz) kale, stalks removed and leaves torn into bite-sized pieces
- 50g (2oz/1 cup) baby spinach leaves
- 125g (4oz/21⁄4 cups) halloumi
- 50g (2oz/1 cup) freshly grated coconut flesh (optional)
- 2 lemon wedges
- 1 avocado, halved, peeled, stoned (pitted) and sliced
- Put the eggs in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil and boil for 3 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon, place the eggs under cold running water until cool enough to handle. Very carefully peel off the shells and set aside.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, constantly stirring, until the garlic is fragrant and lightly browned. Add the almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds and toast until lightly browned.
- Add the cooked quinoa and the sea salt.
- Now add the kale and spinach leaves and mix to incorporate. Once the kale and spinach have slightly wilted remove from the heat.
- Spoon the mixture into serving bowls then, using the same frying pan, crumble the halloumi into the pan and gently cook until golden on all sides. This will only take a few minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the halloumi to each serving bowl.
- Place the eggs into the frying pan and turn until a little colour is added to each egg. Add an egg to each bowl, followed by the grated coconut flesh, lemon wedges and avocado slices.
- Serve immediately while still warm.
