This 5 ingredient broccoli egg breakfast bowls recipe comes together super quickly and is a great option for vegetarian breakfast or a fun breakfast for dinner recipe!
This breakfast bowl takes only 5 minutes to make. Seriously, 5 minutes. Which is perfect for your busy mornings or nights when you’re not sure what to cook.
Two other dishes that make great breakfast for dinner dishes:
What ingredients do I need to make this broccoli egg breakfast bowl?
- Broccoli Florets
- Feta Cheese
And, of course a delicious piece of toast to enjoy along side this dish! We love a good slice of sourdough toast.
Beyond this dish being so easy to make, it is also super flexible which makes it a fave in our book!
A few places you can get creative with ingredients:
- Cheese options: Feta (used in this recipe), goat cheese, shredded cheddar or any of your favorite cheese options
- Additional toppings: Bacon, chorizo or sausage. You could even add in peppers if you want to spice it up a bit!
The best option is to use frozen broccoli florets in this dish for one main reason: no chopping! Because, let’s be honest, who loves cutting up broccoli?! Plus, fresh broccoli goes bad much more quickly than frozen. Of course, if you use fresh broccoli, cook time will vary slightly.
This 5 ingredient broccoli egg breakfast bowls recipe is a great dish for vegetarians. Eggs and avocados are two of the best ways to get protein quickly…using avocados in cooking is great, but catching them at proper ripeness is always a trick.
One quick avocado tip:
Once an avocado is at proper ripeness level, put it in the fridge to stop the ripening process.
5 Ingredient Broccoli Egg Breakfast Bowls
- 1 Tbs. butter
- 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets frozen
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 large avocado
- 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
- Saute broccoli. Put 1 Tbs. butter in skillet. Melt. Add broccoli. If you're using fresh broccoli, adjust cooking time. Cook at medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt if you'd like things a bit saltier. Broccoli cooked from frozen is about 5 minutes.
- In medium bowl, beat eggs. Add 1 small pinch of salt per egg.
- Add eggs to broccoli skillet and scramble. Turn heat to low. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Turn off heat once eggs start to solidify. Eggs keep cooking with residual heat.
- Top with avocado and feta cheese.
- Serve with toast if desired
This is one of those staple recipes in our house. But I’ve figured out a way to make them to go. I use a Siete cassava tortilla and heat it up then fill it with the broccoli egg mixture place an avocado slice and sprinkle a little cheese roll up and you’re out the door with a delish and easy breakfast. These freeze well too. Then just wrap in a wet a paper towel and heat in microwave.
I’m so happy to hear this, and what an absolutely amazing way to enjoy it by wrapping it in a cassava tortilla (I love those ones, so I’m definitely going to have to try these bowls that way!!)
Thanks for sharing!

Love your breakfast recipe! My kids always love when I make fried or roasted corn tortillas triangles, beat some eggs and pour over, add veggies or a meat, top with cheese and hot sauce. The traditional way, it’s with enchilada sauce but my kids prefer a small amount of hot sauce or a can of spicy tomato “el patio” sauce. BTW absolutely LOVE your email campaign! My FAV.
Oh yum, your tortillas triangle breakfast sounds SO GOOD!!!! And THANK YOU so so much for your kind words about my emails, truly appreciate that!!!

My family really loves when I makes Biscuits & Gravy Casserole. I’m much simpler and prefer an iced coffee and something sweet like a scone.

I love the ease and taste of your overnight vanilla oatmeal recipe from last year. The brown sugar and walnuts added just before eating are great additions.
I’m so happy you love this and those overnight oatmeal cups – I was just thinking about make some the other day!!!

I only eat breakfast at home on the weekends when I have the time. This looks like a delicious & healthy Saturday feast.

This looks yummy! I love a good breakfast casserole bake ( with egg, bacon, cheese, etc)!
I have a hard time eating eggs fro breakfast and often have soup in the winter. this summer I discovered your cherry smoothie recipe with yogurt, honey (which I leave out), frozen cherries and some water. I added chocolate protein powder to the smoothie and love it!
This comment made my day! I am so happy to hear you found the cherry smoothie (it’s one of our faves around here too!!!!)
Excellent!! Will try it for sure.

Eggs Benedict ……..so yummy
Completely agree, so so good!

My favorite breakfast is making a frittata – using whatever fresh veggies I have on hand.
The one item that is a must, is sprinkling a bit of goat cheese on top before baking. 🙂
Oh I love the sound of that! Goat cheese for the win!

HEALTHY BAKED APPLE OATMEAL
Baked oatmeal with tender apples, cinnamon, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup is full of fiber and deliciously healthy! It’s a great way to start your day!
* Author: Julie | The Simple Veganista
* Prep Time: 5 min Cook Time: 30 min Total Time: 35 minutes
* Yield: Serves 4 – 6
* Category: Breakfast
* Method: oven
* Cuisine: American
* Diet: Vegan
* 2 cup old-fashioned oats
* 2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* pinch of mineral salt
* 2 cup unsweetened almond milk
* 1 cup mashed banana, optional
* 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, optional
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 medium apple, use your favorite (I used Fuji), cored and diced
* 1/2 – 1 cup walnuts, chopped
* sliced apple
* pure maple syrup
* unsweetened almond milk
* unsweetened toasted coconut flakes (it’s delicious!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease your baking dish with coconut oil if you like (generally I skip this step).
Mix: In an 8 × 8 baking dish, add oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt, mix well. Add in the milk, banana, optional syrup and vanilla, gently whisk to combine. Top with chopped apples and walnuts, mix them in if you like.
Bake: Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 30 minutes. Once done, let cool slightly.
Serve: Slice and serve warm in individual bowls with toppings of choice. Voila’….enjoy this most delicious and worth the wait oatmeal!
Serves 4 – 6
If you like, add the spices to the mashed banana, mixing well, to ensure even distribution of the spices. (see comments)
If using bananas that are not overly ripe or you’re using a tart apple, you may like to add ¼ cup of pure maple syrup to the mixture when adding the milk and other wet ingredients. Or simply add extra maple syrup when serving.
If you don’t have an 8 × 8 baking dish, a 9 × 9 will work too. Dish can be round or square.
I don’t tend to grease my baking dish when making baked oatmeal. I’ve never had a problem with sticking, but feel free to lightly grease yours if you prefer.
Thank you so much for sharing this – it sounds so so good, definitely need to make this for my kids, they love oatmeal!
