Hummus Breakfast Bowl | Powerbowl Recipes

5 from 1 vote

Power your way through your morning with this savory, yet quick, bowl.

This Hummus Breakfast Bowl is perfect for those mornings when you’re really just craving something savory, but also don’t have a lot of time. It’s a good source of protein and grains, and also a great way to get in your veggies. It’s a perfect go-to for when you’re in a hurry, too, since it really is a quick meal to cook. I often find myself enjoying the warm bowl after the gym, before running out the door.

The most difficult part of creating the dish is not eating it before I get it in the bowl! The smell of the egg mixed with the quinoa and brown rice, along with the vegetables, is so overwhelmingly savory and appetizing. The aroma will have the entire family in the kitchen asking for some.

You can even choose different flavors of hummus, and also some additional healthy sauces to adhere to your cravings. For example, I usually use a roasted pine nut hummus to give the bowl more of that down-to-earth, nutty taste. However, sometimes I feel like spicing the morning up and using roasted red pepper hummus, followed by the addition of a quick drizzle of sriracha. You can’t go wrong with using one of our 7 Healthy Homemade Hummus Recipes to create your own hummus either. Whichever flavor of hummus you choose, the sunflower seeds are absolutely essential. They give the meal that extra crunch that will keep you coming back for more.

With some creaminess from the hummus, tons of vitamins and minerals from the vegetables, protein from the egg, healthy grains from the quinoa and/or brown rice, and, again, that extra crunch from the sunflower seeds, you’re sure to fall in love with this hummus breakfast bowl that’s delicious all year round.

  1. Hello, sounds delicious, but kale and I have agreed not to be friends. Substitutes? Also, since I am on the WW lifestyle, I would appreciate knowing what a serving size is that would equal 9 SP, especially the humus. Thanks

    1. Instead of kale you can substitute spinach. The serving size for this recipe is one bowl – or one whole recipe. Quinoa is not a zero point item.

  2. Good Afternoon. First off, thank you SO MUCH for your amazing recipes. I am vegan and don’t eat eggs do you have another recommendation for a substitute?

  3. You mention rice in the description but not in the recipe? The recipe calls for cooking all the veggies in with scrambled eggs but the pictures shows the veggies solo?

    1. Leslie, I added brown rice or quinoa to the ingredients. Feel free to combine the egg whites or add them on top. We’ve done both and it’s delicious and ultra either way.
