I love “in a bowl” recipes. Dinner in a bowl. Leftovers in a bowl. And now, breakfast in a bowl. Every time I’ve made one of these bowl recipes, I’ve found them to be easy, quick, DELICIOUS, and a way to cut down on dishes (which is a must when you have 4 people living in the same house). We recently teamed up with Chelsea from A Duck’s Oven to make a breakfast bowl with our sweet, tart and a little bit tropical Pinata® apples. Not only did her savory creation fit the “bowl” bill, but it also proved to be a simple way to enjoy eating vegetables for breakfast.
Sweet potatoes and spinach are the star vegetables in this breakfast. I love the combination of sweet potatoes and our Pinata® apples, and it’s a pairing we’ve featured here before (like in this chili recipe). There’s just something about that caramelized bite of sweet potato that goes great with the crisp and juicy Pinata® apple. This bowl brings those flavors together with a scrambled egg, wilted spinach, and the most amazing garlic-tahini sauce! Check out how to make the sauce and this savory breakfast bowl in the video below.
I know that garlic doesn’t sound like the best food to start the day with, but after trying Chelsea’s creative sauce that brings garlic, tahini, and lemon juice together, I was convinced otherwise. And I think that’s just what meals-in-a-bowl are supposed to do for us. They convince us that flavors we might not put together are delicious when you do, and that sometimes, you just need to start a day with lots of vegetables for breakfast.
