I’m always looking for different meal options in the morning since breakfast sets the tone for the day, and it gives me my base and energy from which to work. So I decided to move quinoa into the breakfast room and mix it with kale, a nutritional powerhouse, as well as a few Primal Pasture ingredients. I became a fan of Primal Pastures’ chorizo after the first bite, and I love pairing it with sautéed kale and tomatoes. I put all that together in a bowl, top it with a pastured egg, and there’s no stopping me for the rest of the day!
Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
- 6 ounces Primal Pastures chorizo
- 1 cup diced onions
- 1 cup fresh kale, cut with backbone removed
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 4 Primal Pastures eggs
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add chorizo to a large pan over low heat and sauté until cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Remove chorizo from pan and keep warm.
- In the same skillet, over medium heat, add onions and sauté until translucent. Toss in the kale and season with salt and pepper. When the kale has wilted and is tender, add the tomatoes and cook until they break down, about 5 minutes. Then add the cooked quinoa to the pan and mix until the ingredients are combined. Take the pan off the heat and add the Sriracha. Mix well.
- Meanwhile, bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Reduce heat so the water is simmering. Add the vinegar and begin stirring the water quickly to the right, creating a whirlpool. Crack one egg at a time into a small bowl or onto a spoon, and then gently drop each egg into the water. Boil one egg at a time for better results. The egg is done once the white is set, about 3-5 minutes.
- Divide the quinoa mixture between 4 bowls, and top each with an egg, season and enjoy.
