Who doesn’t love Mediterranean food?! Pizza, pasta, Greek chicken, tabouleh, the list just goes on. I just love Mediterranean inspired dishes! This breakfast bowl became a favorite the first time my boyfriend made it for me. He got me started on breakfast bowls and now they have become staples! (Check out another recipe I have here.) Not only is it particular breakfast bowl pretty, it is also low carb, nutrient packed, and as always, flavorful and delicious. I’m seriously enjoying adding more Mediterranean flavors to my life, so keep checking the blog because you’ll be getting more inspired recipes soon.
Mediterranean Breakfast Bowl Recipe
For this recipe you will need 1 red bell pepper, 2 tbsp chopped onion, 1 clove minced garlic, 1/4 cup sliced pre-sliced dried tomatoes, 1 cup baby spinach, 1 cup arugula (1 handful each), kalamata olives, 1avocado, 4 eggs, fat for cooking (butter, olive oil, or avocado oil are the best options), and salt and pepper.
Take your bell pepper and chop into 1-inch size pieces. If your onion isn’t already diced, dice your onion and mince your garlic clove. On medium heat, warm up your large skillet. Once it’s warm, add your cooking fat of choice and coat the bottom of the pan. First, add in your onion and saute for 2-3 minutes. Next up, add your bell peppers and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add in garlic, sun dried tomatoes, greens, and salt and pepper. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. then push to one side of the pan. On the empty side add in your eggs, lightly salt and pepper, and fry to desired doneness. I prefer mine to be over easy.
Split the vegetables between the two bowls, then add your pitted kalamata olives. (Add as many as you like! I just kind of eyeball it.) Now add the eggs to one side of the bowl. Cut your avocado in half, remove the pit, and slice it in the skin. Using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin and add 1/2 of one to each bowl. Salt and pepper as needed.
