Looking for a tasty fruit and veggie combination for a quick blended breakfast? Start with this one and adjust as you choose. You may decide to add more fruit or stick with a less sweet beverage. Either way, enjoy your greens!
These delicious little vegetarian crust-less quiches are a great main for breakfast or a convenient mid-day snack. They can be stored in the fridge for days and/or frozen to keep even longer. What a great vehicle to deliver your eggs and veggies.
Previously muffins felt like a guilty pleasure, however with this gluten-free recipe that combines oatmeal, fruit and nuts, I feel good about enjoying this treat again. The cooked oatmeal provides a dense, moist consistency without having the dryness of uncooked. You may sub the blueberries and pecans for any other berry and nut combination you choose.
This recipe is adapted from my favorite dish served at my favorite SF brunch spot, Tangerine. They actually top the eggs and zucchini latkes with a Hollandaise but I’ve found the subtler flavor of the sour cream works even better with the spiced up zucchini latkes. You may substitute the thyme for any other fresh tender herb you like, such as chives or tarragon. You may also choose to prepare your eggs in a different way, however I think you’ll agree that the zucchini latkes make for a tasty foundation for any topping.
I’ve always dreamed about making my own yogurt, but was a bit intimidated by the process. Cultures for Health offers a wealth of knowledge about the topic and also sells the supplies needed. I saw a few friends trying it out and was inspired to finally take the plunge, especially since I had just brought home two huge jars of raw milk from a friend’s farm in West Marin. Give it a try yourself; with these online resources and how-to-videos, you’ll feel at ease. I referred to their Raw Milk Yogurt Recipe this time, however I plan on testing out the other variations soon.
Leftover baked sweet potatoes in your fridge? Here’s a breakfast meal that makes perfect use of their goodness. Throwing sweet potatoes on the grill, stabbed with a fork and wrapped in foil, for about 40 minutes, is an easy way to prepare them, especially if you’re BBQing already.
Frittata is a great breakfast or brunch dish for a group, especially on the weekend, when you have about an hour to devote to cooking in the morning. You can get creative with the combination of vegetables and sausage that flavors it, however this one is an all-time favorite of mine. Served with baked bacon that can also be glazed with maple syrup if you’d prefer a sweeter taste.
