Ingredients for one grain bowl

  • 1/4 cup cooked white quinoa
  • 1/4 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/3 cup black beans with caramelized onion
  • 1/2 ripe avocado sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 plum tomato , seeds removed and diced
  • 2 soft boiled eggs
  • 1 tbsp taco sauce
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • 1 chopped green onion
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook quinoa and brown rice according to package instructions, (I used 1/2 cup of each and had a little over 1 cup leftover after 2 servings)
  • Dice a medium onion and place in a skillet with 1 tbsp vegetable oil and cook on medium low heat while stirring occasionally to caramelize the onion, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Open a 14 oz. can of black beans and put in a strainer and rinse.
  • Add the beans to the caramelized onion in the skillet and heat until warmed, 3 or 4 minutes, (there was about 3/4 cup of leftover beans and onion)
  • Quarter a plum tomato lengthwise and use your thumb to remove the seeds, then dice.
  • Slice 1/2 of a ripe avocado
  • Boil 4 or 5 cups of water in a saucepan, then add eggs with a slotted spoon or small kitchen spider, and boil for 5 minutes for a runny yolk
  • Remove the eggs with the slotted spoon and place in ice cold water for 30 seconds to cool slightly, then peel
  • Assemble the grain bowl as desired, drizzle with taco sauce and lightly salt and pepper the dish.
  • Garnish with green onion and cilantro


The nutrition information and ingredients are based on 1 serving.
I used regular brown rice which takes 40 or 45 minutes to cook. You may want to use a microwavable package of rice to dramatically save time making this.
