1 head kale, rinsed, dried, stems discarded and leaves cut into pieces

1 head kale, rinsed, dried, stems discarded and leaves cut into pieces 

Sea salt 

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl:

1 cup red or white quinoa

2 cups water or chicken broth 

1/2 cup shredded carrots 

2 cloves garlic, chopped 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil 

1 1/2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms 

4 large eggs, cooked sunny-side up or your favorite way, for serving

Hot sauce, for serving, optional 

Parmesan shavings, for garnish

Directions

  1. For the crispy kale chips: Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Drizzle the olive oil over the kale and massage it into the leaves so that they are completely coated. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake until crispy, 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. For the quinoa breakfast bowl: Add the quinoa and water to a medium saucepot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the carrots, garlic and a pinch of salt. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Set a medium saute pan over medium heat and add the olive oil and shiitake mushrooms. Saute until brown on both sides, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. To assemble each bowl: Start with 1 cup quinoa, then layer one-quarter of the mushrooms on top. Next, add one of the cooked eggs and a dash of hot sauce if using. Sprinkle with the kale chips and garnish with fresh Parmesan shavings.
