Start the day strong with this savory whole grain breakfast bowl that includes sliced portabella mushrooms and a curry yogurt tahini topping. We’ve used barley, but feel free to swap it with your favorite grain such as quinoa or wild rice.


Yogurt topping

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt

Breakfast bowls

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 portabella mushroom caps, cleaned and thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 heads baby bok choy, sliced
  • 1 cup pearled barley, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 4 large eggs, fried


  1. To make the topping, heat the olive oil in a medium-skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the kale and cook for 2 more minutes, until wilted. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Spoon the yogurt into a small food processor or cup of a single serving blender. Add the tahini, curry powder, and salt. Add the kale and garlic. Pulse in 10 second intervals until the kale is finely chopped and all ingredients are combined. Set aside.
  3. Start on the breakfast bowls by heating the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium-skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and toss to cook in the oil for 5 minutes, until they become tender. Toss with the salt. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and add the bok choy to the hot skillet. Cook on medium-heat for 1 minute, until it begins to wilt. Remove from heat.
  4. Assemble the breakfast by adding an equal amount of barley to each of four bowls. Top with greens, sliced mushrooms, and red bell pepper. Add a large dollop of the topping and place an egg in each bowl. Serve right away.

    • Add some savory flavor to your summer spread with mushrooms! 🍄 What is your fave grilled side dish at cookouts?
#Repost @zestmylemon A plate of grilled goodness for dinner tonight. Grilled tuna steak seasoned with olive oil, garlic powder, LOTS of crushed black pepper and a little sea salt. I added a thick drizzle of a green Peruvian sauce made with fresh herbs, cumin and jalapeño which I got from a new local restaurant @sanguchonfactory that just opened up in my area. I also made some grilled 🌶 mini peppers, mushrooms and 🌽 corn sprayed with coconut oil and seasoned with sea salt to go along. And there is something about 🐟 tuna and 🥑 avocado that taste so darn good so I couldn’t forget that. It was a delicious nourishing meal. Hope you have a great night.
