  • Author: Sara Haas


Good food fast! Fill your bowl with this nourishing collection of whole grains, veggies and lean proteins!


  • 1/4 cup bulgur
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup drained and rinsed canned garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder


  1. Place the bulgur in a bowl with a pinch of kosher salt. Pour boiling water over and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside to steam for about 15-20 minutes while you prepare the rest of the dish.
  2. Set a small non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the garbanzo beans, carrots and a pinch of salt and cook 4 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the spinach and cook 1 minute. Move to a bowl and cover to keep warm. To the same skillet, add the egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, undisturbed for 2 minutes. Cover pan with foil and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until desired doneness.
  3. Drain any excess liquid from the bulgur and then toss with 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Top the bulgur with the beans and veggies and then the egg. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining lemon juice, the yogurt, water, curry powder and a pinch of salt and drizzle over the top. Enjoy immediately.
