No-Guilt Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo.
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.

PS. if you love carbs, a side of toast is so good too. Just saying.
I love this avocado everything spice bowl! Haha and I agree the name is difficult. When I’m in town and make my mom dinner, she often says “what’s the name of this?” Haha and I end up just listing the ingredients.
I do like this bowl with everything spice and feel like it would even be good with some lox or maybe goat cheese? 🙂
I hope you’re staying warm (isn’t there a blizzard heading to CO?) and sleep well!
Hi! So glad you like this! Yes, I totally end up listing the ingredients too! Thank you Kristin!
Such a perfect breakfast bowl!
Thank you Laura!
Gasp! You just combined my two favourite breakfasts together. Sounds like the perfect weekend breakfast (no time otherwise in the morning). Thanks for another great recipe, Tieghan!
Thank you Dina! I hope you love this!
Ohhhh, so healthy and beautiful!
My kind of breakfast 🙂
Thank you for sharing a healthy savory breakfast bowl! I only do savory for breakfast. The recipe is also a good reason for me to use my Trader’s Joe everything but the bagel seasoning which I have not used even though I have it for quite a few weeks already.
Have a great week!
Yes perfect! Thank you Eileen!
This looks like a must try. Love all of the ingredients but never thought to put them together! Would also be great all chopped up and put together in “egg salad” form over the rice!
Yes!! I hope you love this! Thanks Christin!
I like this. I’ll have to try it. What do you use in the everything bagel spice mix?
I like the brown rice; Farro would work,too. Also, could skip and put the rest in a whole
: wheat pita pocket…for quick on the go.
HI! Below is my recipe. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! ?
We have been doing soft boiled egg and brown rice for breakfast for a few years now and love it….such a filling breakfast. We do cook all the rice and eggs and put them in the fridge ahead and, like you, I like mine warm….doesn’t have to be piping hot. So what I do is pour up an extra cup of hot water when I’m having tea and drop my already soft cooked egg into it. Warms it up just right! Can’t wait to try this with the addition of the greek yogurt and avacado, all by favorite breakfast foods in one! YEA! Thanks again Tieghan!
Ooo that is the perfect idea! Thank you so much Karen! I hope you love this yogurt bowl!
Interesting! I have never thought of combining yogurt with anything other than berries and granola–looks amazing and will have to try it.
Thank you Karla!
Ooh this looks so perfect for a filling and quick breakfast!! I have never been a huge fan of hard boiled eggs..but this soft boiled, that I could get on board with. Thanks for a great recipe and beautiful photos as always!!
Thank you Stephanie! I hope you love this!
What can I use instead of everything bagel spice? I am unsure I can find it in my supermarket, but assume it adds quite a bit of flavor. Thank You! Looks delicious!
HI! Can you mix up your own everything bagel spice? Below is my recipe. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂
Sounds interesting, I’ll give this a try. Wouldn’t have thought to combine yogurt with these ingredients.
I feel your pain on the naming problem. I have to write blogs for my work web site and the hardest part for me by far is coming up with a title.
Thank you Lisa! I hope you love this!
WOW!! No microwave??? I know a lot of people don’t use them because of health stuff but can’t imagine a blogger not having one. Have you never had one?
Hi Charlotte! I have never had one down at my house! My parents have one up at theirs, but I do not use it!
Yes, yes, YES!! This is amazing! I was waiting for something like this for ages now and finally, Tieghan, I knew I can count on you. You’ve hit the empty space with this yogurt bowl.
Although, I’m not a savoury breakfast person, not my thing. But I will eat this for lunch! Aaaand, since I hate any kind of rice, I’m thinking about swapping it for lentils. That sounds awesome, what do you think? But soft boiled jammy eggs with avocado and extra thick delicious yogurt.. Oh yum, a dream coming true. Plus the everything bagel spice makes it even better. It’s a pity our stores don’t offer something like it, but I will make my own, it shouldn’t be hard.
However, there is a thing with me and a perfectly soft boiled egg.. For the one’s sake, I’m not able to make them according to my likings. They end up either over cooked (not so ooey gooey) or still too raw. I’m such an antitalent.. This is the reason I’m not making them often, but my love for them is indescribable.
I just cannot wait for the weekend when I will finally have time to prepare my meal ready to serve immediately (because through the week, I live on prepped boxes and bentos).
Thank you for this inspiration, I really adore the idea.
And don’t worry about the recipe names, I struggle with this all the time. Sometimes it takes me half an hour to come up with somewhat suitable. Oh well, blogger problems, right?
I am SO happy you’re loving this! I hope it turns out amazing for you.. let me know!! Also the names can be so difficult but yes.. blogger problems haha! Thank you!
Yuuum, this looks sooo delicious.
Thank you Pika!
