What You’ll Need For Vegetarian Black Bean Bowls

These black bean bowls are simple to make with a few staple items. All you need is:

  • 1 16 ounce can of black beans
  • Spinach or Kale
  • 1/2 Medium Pepper
  • 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion
  • 1 Medium Avocado
  • 4 Eggs
  • Salsa
  • Cheddar Cheese (Optional)

How To Make Vegetarian Black Bean Bowls

Heat your black beans in a medium-sized pot over medium heat.

While your black beans cook, heat a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil. Add your onions and peppers and sautee for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.

Once your peppers and onions are finished, remove from heat. Add your spinach or kale and cook until wilted for approximately 2 minutes.

Cook your eggs to your preference- fried, scrambled, sunny side up, over easy.

Assemble your bowls with all of your ingredients. Top with salsa, cheese, or hot sauce.

Substitutions for Black Bean Bowls

These black bean bowls can be customized to your dietary preference.

If you want to make them vegan, skip the eggs and cheese. You can add extra black beans or avocado for extra protein.

Also, you can add quinoa for some extra protein.

Another easy substitution is replacing the peppers with diced tomatoes.

Can You Meal Prep These Black Bean Bowls?

These black bean breakfast bowls can easily be meal prepped when you have extra time.

Pre-cook your peppers and onions, black beans, and spinach. When you’re ready to eat them, simply reheat over medium heat on your stove and cook your eggs.

Storing and Serving Black Bean Bowls

These breakfast bowls will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

I recommend you serve them warm and top with salsa or hot sauce. If you’re not dairy-free you can add some shredded Cheddar cheese.

Also, you can add some tortilla chips as a garnish or on the side.
