Breakfast bowls are the best! They are healthy and easy to throw together, and they are tasty and filling, so they make for a perfect meal to start your day! To create a breakfast bowl, you basically cook some veggies of your choice in a way that you choose, add another ingredient like cheese, plain yogurt, or lentils, and top it with an egg. Easy peasy and delicious!
Like I said, you can choose whatever veggies you want to create your breakfast bowl. This one consists of roasted sweet potato, spaghetti squash, and broccoli. I then added in some shredded goat cheese and topped it with a soft yolked fried egg. Delish, and it’s got some great health benefits thanks to all those healthy veggies!
Uh, yeah, I’d say that all those health benefits make for a pretty great start to your day!
SPAGHETTI SQUASH, BROCCOLI, AND SWEET POTATO BREAKFAST BOWL
Ingredients (makes two servings):
- 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
- 1/2 small spaghetti squash, seeds taken out
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- Olive oil
- garlic granules
- 2 eggs
- shredded cheese of your choice (optional)
- sea salt and pepper for seasoning
1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the sweet potato with a bit of olive oil and garlic granules. Lightly spray the spaghetti squash with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic granules. Place the prepared sweet potato and spaghetti squash on the prepared baking sheet leaving room for the broccoli, but don’t add the broccoli yet. Bake the sweet potato and squash for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
2.) While the sweet potato and squash are baking, toss the broccoli florets in a bowl with a bit of olive oil and garlic granules.
3.) After the sweet potato and squash have baked for 15 minutes, take the baking sheet out of the oven and add the prepared broccoli to it. Put back in the oven and bake for an additional 25 minutes at 400 degrees.
4.) While the veggies are baking, shred your cheese and set aside. Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan. Add the eggs and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes. For a hard yolk, break the yolk. For a soft yolk, take care not to break the yolk (ps…soft yolk = easier on digestion and more nutrients absorbed). Place on a plate until the veggies are done baking.
5.) When the veggies are done, arrange them in a bowl along with the cheese, and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt and pepper.
6.) Top with the eggs, and sprinkle a bit more sea salt and pepper on top of the egg (only a teensy tiny bit so as not to overwhelm)
Ta-da! A beautiful breakfast bowl that makes for a PERFECTLY DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY breakfast! Enjoy! 🙂
