2. Roast the Veggies

  • In a medium bowl, toss the sweet potato, broccoli/Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and onion with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

3. Cook the protein

  • While the veggies roast, prepare your chosen protein source.
  • Egg: Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a bit of oil or butter. Fry or scramble your egg to your preferred doneness.
  • Tofu: Heat a bit of oil in a skillet. Crumble and scramble the tofu until browned. Season with salt, pepper, and any desired spices.

4. Assemble the bowl

  • In a serving bowl, add your chosen base (quinoa, brown rice, or cauliflower rice).
  • Top with roasted vegetables, baby spinach, and your cooked egg or tofu scramble.
  • Add your favorite toppings: avocado, salsa, hot sauce, herbs, etc.

Tips and Customizations

Get creative with vegetables: Use whatever’s in season or your favorites: zucchini, bell peppers, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, etc.

Spice it up: Add a pinch of chili flakes, curry powder, or your favorite spice blend to the roasted veggies.

Vary your protein: Try chickpeas, black beans, or even a breakfast sausage substitute.

Make it creamy: Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or a drizzle of tahini sauce.
