For the crispy kale chips: Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Drizzle the olive oil over the kale and massage it into the leaves so that they are completely coated. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake until crispy, 20 to 30 minutes.
For the quinoa breakfast bowl: Add the quinoa and water to a medium saucepot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the carrots, garlic and a pinch of salt. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
Set a medium saute pan over medium heat and add the olive oil and shiitake mushrooms. Saute until brown on both sides, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
To assemble each bowl: Start with 1 cup quinoa, then layer one-quarter of the mushrooms on top. Next, add one of the cooked eggs and a dash of hot sauce if using. Sprinkle with the kale chips and garnish with fresh Parmesan shavings.
