Most people think of quinoa as a grain for lunch or dinner, but it actually is great for breakfast too! It’s filling, has protein and can go sweet or savory. I went savory here because I was craving a soft boiled egg.

I find that the way to a perfect soft boiled egg is to boil water, add the egg and cook for 6 minutes on medium high. Then, immediately place it in cool water that has a few ice cubes in it. Sometimes they are a little difficult to peel – running them under a gentle stream of cool water as you peel seems to help with that. I just love the easiness of a soft boiled egg over a poached egg and you still get the runny yolk!

This bowl is simple – sometimes I don’t have the patience to make something extravagant in the morning when I’m hangry.

Notes
I like to add a little salt to the egg yolk after I break it before I mix everything together
