power breakfast (or lunch) (or dinner) bowl

This bowl has it all...whole grains, protein, fresh veggies and a whole lotta deliciousness.  I love to start my day with something healthy and filling so I'm not starving my 10:00.  And because this bowl uses frozen brown rice (or quinoa), it takes just a few minutes to bust out in the morning.

Of course, this combo would be great any time of day. It's kind of like the California version of the Korean bibimbap and would make a perfect lunch or a light, healthy dinner.  Use whatever veggies you have on hand, but I highly recommend the avocado in there...it's so creamy and a great combo with the eggs & rice.

I also love to give it a little kick of spice.  I've used togarashi which is a Japanese chili & spice blend, but feel free to use your favorite hot sauce or some cayenne.

serves 1

1/2 c. frozen brown rice or frozen quinoa
1 egg - cooked to your liking
kosher salt & pepper
1 c. baby spinach
1 T. green onion - sliced
1 T. red pepper - finely diced
1/4 of an avocado - sliced
fresh cilantro leaves
a sprinkle of togarashi or cayenne pepper (or hot sauce)

Heat frozen brown rice or quinoa in a bowl according to directions on the package.

Cook your egg as you like it in a small skillet, seasoning with salt & pepper. Remove egg and place in your bowl on top of the rice.  Then throw your baby spinach into the already hot skillet and let it cook until slightly wilted - about 1 minute.

Add spinach to rice & egg bowl.  Top with green onion, red pepper. avocado & cilantro.

Sprinkle with togarashi, cayenne or hot sauce.
