We made a 3 SmartPoints value Quinoa and Edamame Bowl with a Poached Egg:

quinoa bowl

  • Combine 1 c baby arugula, 1/2 c cooked quinoa, 1/3 c cooked shelled edamame and 1/4 c each matchstick radishes and carrots

  • Top with 1 poached egg and 2-3 Tbsp kimchi

Other ideas to try


  • Fill 1/2 of your bowl with veggies and/or fruit, then 1/4 with protein and 1/4 with whole grains or starch.

  • Add tons of flavor with kimchi, capers, or other chopped pickled vegetables.

  • There’s no right or wrong: Any ingredients can be mixed in a bowl—it’s a great way to use leftovers.

  • Think about combining textures: crunchy, creamy, roasted, wet, dry.
