Ingredient Notes:

Maggi Liquid Seasoning: This seasoning is often found where you find soy sauce in your grocery store. It’s a strong aromatic liquid flavoring that can be used in basically any dish to enhance the flavor.

Cottage Cheese: Cottage cheese is used in this recipe and gives you a boost of protein. I find it hard to get enough protein in throughout the day so it’s good to start with a protein-packed breakfast. You can also swap this for Greek yogurt if you prefer.

How to make this breakfast bowl:

  1. Assemble the bowl by layering the brown rice mixed with the maggi liquid seasoning at the bottom and then add the cottage cheese or greek yogurt on top plus the fresh herbs and pickled red onions.
  2. Next, poach the eggs:Fill a medium pot halfway with water and bring to a simmer over medium heat.Turn to medium low (tiny bubbles just barely breaking through the surface) and then add 1 tsp vinegar and whisk vigorously.One at a time, crack eggs into a small bowl, gently dropping into the water while slowly stirring water with a slotted spoon. Keep swirling the water gently to help the eggs form into little balls.Set timer for 3 minutes for poached eggs with runny yolks. Cook longer if you prefer a firmer yolk. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  3. Add poached eggs to the bowl and drizzle over chili crunch and sesame seeds. Finish with a pinch of salt and pepper

Expert Tips & FAQ:

I can’t find maggi liquid seasoning: If you can’t find Maggi Liquid Seasoning try a bit of soy sauce or tamari.

Eggs: Sunny-side up or over-easy eggs would also be a delicious choice instead of poaching eggs.

Brown Rice Meal Prep: Our pro tip for meal-prepping brown rice – add the brown rice, butter, salt and boiling water to a 9×9 or 10×15 inch pan. Stir and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour at 375F, fluff and cool before adding to a container to store in the fridge:

  • 1 ½ cups medium or long-grain brown rice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 ½ cups boiling water
