Quinoa Breakfast Bowls

Quinoa’s mild flavor makes it super-versatile. It’s also gluten-free and packed with protein — and it cooks fast and stores well, making it suitable for a quick morning meal or weekend prep.

Farro Bowls

Farro is a nutty-flavored grain that can go sweet or savory, warm or cold. We think its toothsome texture makes absolutely everything better.

Rice Bowls

Breakfast rice bowls are a fantastic reason to always, always make extra rice. Brown rice is a more fiber-rich, nutrient-dense option, but if white rice is what you’ve got, use it. This affordable staple has a subtle flavor that makes an ideal base for topping with bold flavors, seasonings, and spices.
