An easy green bean breakfast featuring sesame green beans paired with quinoa and a fried egg.



Green Beans:

  • 1/2 pound green beans
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 fried eggs


  • Rinse, dry, and trim the ends from the green beans. Heat a medium skillet with a lid over medium-low heat. Add the oil followed by the green beans. Cover and cook until the green beans have brightened in color and are just starting to become tender; 3 to 5 minutes depending on heat.
  • Remove the lid and continue to cook for another couple minutes; until the green beans are browning and tender.
  • Add the remaining ingredients in, cook for another minute or so then remove from heat.
  • Divide the quinoa onto two plates then top with green beans and fried eggs.


Tips & Tricks: The green beans make for a solid component. Make a large batch on the weekend and use for salads, spring rolls, and wraps throughout the week.
