Looking for a healthy, protein-packed breakfast option? this quinoa breakfast bowl is topped with black beans, avocado, caramelized onions and a nice jammy egg!


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup black beans (drained, rinsed and warmed)
  • 1/2 cup caramelized onions
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1 ripe Haas avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add quinoa and water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 12 minutes or until water is evaporated. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes.  Fluff with a fork.
  2. Prepare a small bowl of cold water and some ice cubes (ice bath).  
  3. While the quinoa is cooking place the metal trivet or egg ring in your Instant Pot.  Add 1 cup of water.  Add the eggs.  Close the Instant Pot lid and make sure it’s set to sealing.  Set to cook on high pressure for 3 minutes.  When the time is up quick release the pressure.  Remove the eggs and carefully place them in the ice bath for 5 minutes.  Once they are cool, peel the eggs.  
  4. Divide the quinoa between two bowls. Top with black beans, caramelized onions, red pepper and avocado.
  5. Carefully slice the eggs in half with a sharp knife.  Place two egg halves on top of each bowl.  
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.


  1. If you are making the caramelized onions just for this recipe add about 40 minutes to the cooking time.
  2. If you prefer to poach the eggs fill a medium saucepan half full with water and bring to a simmer. Crack one egg into a small bowl and carefully slide into the water; repeat with the second egg. Cook for 3-4 minutes until eggs are set.
