While a lot of our breakfasts lean towards the fruity/sweet or the rich oaty/ grainy, this bowl is savoury and protein-packed yet also fresh and light. A base of quinoa and kale is studded with dill and parsley and topped with avocado, radishes and a soft-boiled egg. By simply rubbing the kale with oil and lemon, it softens without needing to be cooked, which not only saves time but also on dirty dishes. Before digging in, we sprinkle some Dukkah, Savoury Granola or toasted seeds on top, for added flavour and crunch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g curly kale, stems removed
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
150g Quick quinoa, cooked, (or 1/2 cup uncooked, boiled in salted water for 15-18 minutes)
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
2 free-range eggs
2 ripe avocados, stones removed and flesh sliced
4 radishes, sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dukkah
or Savoury granola – salad’s best friend

Method

  1. Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the eggs and let them cook for 6–7 minutes before removing from the heat. Rinse the eggs in cold water and carefully peel off the shells.
  2. Meanwhile, roughly chop the kale and transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Add the oil and lemon juice and massage the kale for a minute or so or until the leaves begin to soften. Add the parsley and dill to the bowl along with the cooked quinoa. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir until combined.
  3. Divide between two bowls and serve topped with halved eggs, avocado and radish slices, a sprinkling of dukkah or granola, and a drizzle of oil.

Tip

  • For a vegan alternative, simply leave out the egg.
