Mediterranean Breakfast Bowls

Base: Start with a base of cooked grains such as quinoa, farro, or bulgur wheat. These grains provide a hearty foundation for your breakfast bowl and are packed with fiber and nutrients. 

Protein: Add a source of protein to your bowl, such as scrambled eggs, poached eggs, or grilled tofu. You can also include cooked chickpeas, lentils, or falafel for a vegetarian protein option. 

Fresh Vegetables: Incorporate a variety of fresh vegetables to add color, flavor, and nutrition to your breakfast bowl. Some Mediterranean-inspired options include sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, and avocado. 

Greens: Add a handful of leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or arugula for an extra boost of vitamins and minerals. You can sauté the greens lightly or serve them raw depending on your preference. 

Olives: Include a few olives for a salty and briny flavor that is characteristic of Mediterranean cuisine. Choose from a variety of olives such as Kalamata, green, or black olives, depending on your taste. 

Cheese: Sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese or grated Parmesan cheese over your breakfast bowl for a creamy and tangy finish. The cheese adds richness and depth of flavor to the dish. 

Dressing: Drizzle your Mediterranean breakfast bowl with a simple vinaigrette made from olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs such as oregano or basil. Alternatively, you can use tahini sauce or tzatziki for a creamy dressing option. 

Garnish: Finish off your breakfast bowl with a sprinkle of fresh herbs such as parsley, cilantro, or dill, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. You can also add a few slices of lemon or a dollop of hummus for an extra burst of flavor.
