Say hello to the simplest, but most delicious breakfast, The Best Everything Spice Egg Avocado Yogurt Bowl.
So you guys? Have you ever tried to come up with a name for a recipe before? My guess is that for most of you the answer is probably no…since you don’t spend 24/7 developing new recipes. Let me let you in on a little behind the scenes info, coming up with recipe titles can be hard. Honestly, I’ve been working on this recipe title for probably over an hour now. Yes, over an hour. I know that’s INSANE, and I do realize that most normal and sane people would have decided on a title within five-minutes. But…crazy, insane, always over-thinking everything…me? Nope, I needed an hour to figure this one out.
I just could not come up with a name that best described how delicious this simple breakfast bowl is. Normally, I really don’t have that hard of a time with naming my recipes (although they can be long), but on occasion, I have trouble. Today’s recipe however, was one for the books. I mean, it’s the simplest of recipes, but yet I just could not come up with a good name.
Oh well, in the end I’m going with this, The Best Everything Spice Egg Avocado Yogurt Bowl.
Yes, yes. Please just say you…well…please say that it at least works. Please.
Okay. And moving on…
In all seriousness, I love this yogurt bowl so freaking much. I’ve been on a mission to show you guys a savory breakfast bowl for weeks now. At first I started out with testing savory oatmeal recipes, and while I tested a couple of oatmeal bowls that I really enjoyed, nothing beat a bowl of oatmeal topped with sweet bananas.
So, when I wasn’t 100% in love with the oat bowls, I moved onto yogurt bowls, and that’s when everything started to really click.
This recipe is roughly inspired by a few things.
One, I have a recipe in the cookbook for whipped goat cheese with avocado, and eggs. I LOVE this recipe more than anything, but I wanted to have a simpler version for everyday breakfasts. Enter this bowl.
Two, my obsession with greek yogurt. If you didn’t know, I eat Greek yogurt every single day. It’s my favorite served with nuts and seeds, but I also love using it in place of sour cream for things like soup and nachos. It’s for sure a favorite ingredient. Enter this bowl.
Three, Bon Appétit Jammy Soft Boiled Eggs. Truth? I really just needed a new way to serve up these eggs other than with toast. Enter this bowl.
Four, everything bagels…because their the best. Enough said.
For a while, I wasn’t really sure how I wanted this bowl to come together. I mean, there are SO many ways you can put together a savory breakfast bowl, but in the end, I decided that I wanted to stick with the theme of Healthy January, keep things simple, and give you guys a recipe that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes, but was still delicious.
Here is how this goes.
First: spread some thick plain greek yogurt in the bottom of a bowl. I prefer full fat. It’s kind of just the best…you know it.
Second: add a little brown rice, preferably warm brown rice, but cold is ok too (psst, but warm is better).
Third: add an egg, I’m having a moment with soft-boiled eggs, but poached and fried are both equally delicious. Bonus points however go to the soft-boiled egg, as you can make a giant batch on Sunday and keep in the fridge for breakfast with almost no prep or mess.
Fourth: add an avocado, don’t be stingy.
Fifth: sprinkle everything spice over the entire bowl. Oh my gosh, this is the best…be generous.
Sixth: finish with some greens, a drizzle of olive oil, and fresh herbs…if you have them, if not, just add more everything spice, no worries.
And now you see, right?
It’s the simplest bowl of food, but yet, it might just be one of the most delicious. I could eat this breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and be pretty happy about it.
What’s incredible about this healthy bowl is that it literally takes no time to throw together. On Sunday make a big pot of brown rice, soft boil some eggs, and grocery shop for the other ingredients. Then you’ll be all set to make delicious, healthy five-minute breakfasts.
Yes, yes, yesss. You’re welcome.
For those of you who don’t want to make homemade everything spice, I hear Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods both carry Everything Spice in their stores. I have also heard that Trader Joe’s everything spice is kind of life changing, so you know, if you just want to buy it, I get it.
Also? As I blatantly hinted above, I do like to have some of my ingredients warm. I just love warm food, but especially in the morning. Normally, I just warm my rice on the stove (I don’t have a microwave) and make fresh eggs in the morning. I realize not everyone has time for this, but if you like warm breakfast food, this is must do step.
Warm or cold though, this breakfast is not only healthy, it’s completely satisfying.
