My Favorite Breakfast

image

This little brekkie is inspired by the English Breakfast meals I had while over there last summer. My version is MUCH less meaty and one I eat about twice a week.

I am obsessed.

Yes, my plate is loaded, who says vegans go hungry…

  • Bread
  • Organic Vegetarian Baked Beans
  • Chard
  • Kale
  • Mushrooms
  • Half of an Avocado

Beans go in a sauce pan, heat them on medium to low heat and put your bread in the toaster. Fry up some mushroom slices in a bit of olive oil and when they are browned and look about perfect, toss your chard and kale on there with a little salt. I like my greens very LIGHTLY sautéed, just enough to wilt them a bit. Plate your toast and pile your veg and beans on top with that sliced avocado! Occasionally I like to add a bit of hot sauce, sriracha and tapatio being my favs.

Here is a different version of my favorite breakfast with a little OJ Coconut water instead of my usual coffee, and a little potato instead of a second slice of toast. Occasionally I toss a halved tomato in with the beans and let it brown the middle.

Add whatever inspires you!

Birthday Brunch

image

Vegan French Toast

  • Bananas
  • Almond Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Bread

I toss 2 small organic bananas in my bullet, along with a splash of almond milk, cinnamon and about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Blend it until smooth and then use this for your bread batter. I prefer Dave’s Killer Bread or Harper’s Homemade. Top with pure maple syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar!

The Veg

  • Potato
  • Mushroom
  • Rainbow Chard
  • Kale
  • Onion
  • Garlic

Chop up your potato, onion and garlic and toss it into a pan with some olive oil, cook that until your potatoes begin to soften and then throw in your sliced mushrooms. Once everything is done cooking I throw in large pieces of kale and rainbow chard with the spine removed. It only takes a second to wilt the greens and then they are ready. Pile all of this on top of chopped raw kale and chard for crunch and dress with my turmeric dressing.
