Okay, Okay back to this pesto quinoa bowl recipe…..

This pesto quinoa bowl with jammy eggs is the perfect breakfast to prep out on Sunday. Pesto, quinoa, and eggs are amazing together flavor-wise- but also, most vegetables that you have left over in your fridge will probably be delicious to combine as well, so load up on anything you need to use up by roasting or sauteing them. I ended up using tomatoes, mushrooms, avocado, and fresh arugula.
