Meatless Monday Breakfast Bowl

Today's breakfast bowl is simple: a vegetarian-inspired dish with sautéed mushrooms, veggies, Fresno cheese, and a poached egg. 

It's the Meatless Monday breakfast bowl on my list of weekday breakfasts, and it's super yummy!

  • Butter or oil 
  • 1 egg
  • Handful of mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1/4 Anaheim pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresno cheese, crumbled
  • Cilantro (optional...I get it)
  • 1/2 lime
  • Spices (paprika; salt)


For the bowl:

  1. Heat butter or oil in nonstick pan (I use Epicurious)
  2. Sauté mushrooms & peppers in hot pan; add paprika & salt to taste
  3. When done, remove from heat and place in serving bowl 
  4. Add avocado and tomato to serving bowl

Simultaneously, for the poached egg:

  1. Add water and a splash of vinegar to pot (I use All-Clad)
  2. Bring water to a boil, then reduce to simmer
  3. Break egg into a small bowl on the side (I use these)
  4. Swirl water in the simmering pot using a spoon so that it forms a "cyclone"; pour the egg from the small bowl into the center of the "cyclone" 
  5. Simmer egg for ~4 mins; remove with slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to remove excess water


  1. Add poached egg to the bowl of veggies (I use Lenox)
  2. Top with Fresno cheese, cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and additional spices to taste
  3. Enjoy!
