I’m not sure who started the ‘bowl’ craze, but it’s pretty genius, actually. You, basically, pile anything, everything in a bowl either over potatoes, rice, or quinoa. It’s a great way to use leftovers!

And, if you plan ahead and plan for leftovers this meal can be on the table in minutes.

I opted for quinoa for more protein. Added blistered grape tomatoes, tasty pesto, and topped it all with a fried egg.

Yum.

This recipe has four tasty components. I love the zesty pop the blistered tomatoes give and the pesto gives the dish a bright, fresh note.

You may be asking yourself ‘why quinoa, why not rice or pasta?’

Most grains are low in lysine, therefore they are considered incomplete proteins. But, quinoa actually contains lysine, as well as all eight of the other amino acids, making it a complete protein, similar to animal proteins. One cup of quinoa provides about 220 calories and 8 grams of protein.

  1. I am loving the bowl craze too! Especially topped with a fried egg, so good! I usually make grains in advance to make these meals even faster. Pinning for later, Thanks!
