Recipe: Remix Your Leftovers

Brooke Slade

This recipe is so easy that I don't even know if I can call it one. So, instead, I'll call it a how-to or, better yet: a serving suggestion for your leftovers.

Making a "Leftovers Breakfast Bowl" is easily done by simply adding a healthy dose of protein, via eggs and quinoa to whatever leftover veggies, meats, etc you may have in the fridge.

The leftover bowl that I made, pictured below, packs 35 grams of protein from the egg (6 g per 1 egg), quinoa (16 g per 1 cup), low-fat turkey sausage (22 g per 1 lb) and black beans (35 g per 1 cup). This meal is also low in saturated fats and cholesterol (because I used 1 egg instead of several). 

Now, to make this? It's as easy as 1...2...3...

1. Make 1 serving of quinoa, using package instructions. 

2. Make 1 egg, however you like. I usually go with over-medium.

3. Prep & heat up (if needed) your leftovers. 

To plate: Spoon quinoa onto your serving dish. Drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. Place egg atop quinoa. Add prepped leftovers as pictured. I usually finish mine with a little Sriracha. 

I know, all leftovers are not created equally, so, here's a list of healthy leftover options:

  • Guacamole
  • Beans
  • Chickpeas
  • Potatoes
  • Leafy Greens (any type will do!) 
  • Salad greens (sprinkle atop for added nutrition)
  • Fresh Vegetables (like tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers)
  • Cooked Vegetables
  • Plain Greek Yogurt (it's great with savory foods!)
  • Herbs and onions (scallions, chives, parsley, cilantro)
  • Grilled or baked meats
  • Grilled or baked seafood
