Better breakfasts: Green protein bowl
Your daily protein intake doesn’t have to come from meat. Quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids we need from food – pair it with an egg for an extra sustaining boost.
1 Cook the quinoa according to the packet directions. Line a bamboo steamer with baking paper and steam the kale over a saucepan of gently simmering water for 10 mins, or until tender. Set aside.
2 Meanwhile, add the butter to a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the eggs until they’re done to your liking.
3 To serve, divide the quinoa, kale and pesto between three bowls. Top with a fried egg, place the avocado on the side and finish with a squeeze of lemon for extra zing. Season to taste.
