Ive never been an 'eggs and bacon' for breakfast kind of person, i prefer sweet stuff like fruit and pancakes for breakfast, but im interested in the superhero way of veggies for breakfast. So please share your best or favorite superhero breakfasts here so we can get ideas :)
I have steamed greens (kale, collard or and mustard) with brown rice. I mix it together with either the ume sesame dressing recipe from the book or hummus. I used to be a sweets only for breakfast kind of person too, but after just a few days, I started to look forward to this, over something sweet.
I know you said veggies but here is our favorite sweet breakfast recipewe just have a side of green veggies along with it tofu french toast1 cup of soft tofu drained1/2 tsp cinnamon1/4 cup of unsweetened apple juice1 TBS of maple syrup(or brown rice syrup)1 tsp of vanilla3 pinces of sea salt1 TBS sesame oil for pan6 slices of sourdough bread1 cup of strawberries place tofu, cinnamon, all liquid ingredients and sea salt in a blender and blend for 3-4 minutes until smooth and creamy pour blended mixture into shallow dish soak first slice of bread in mixture for 1-2 minutes heat medium size skillet then add sesame pol place bread into hot skillet and brown on both sides top with strawberries and syrup we also enjoy mochi waffles and blueberry pancakes
After I switched over to eating the superhero way (after I which I felt and still feel more amazing than ever!!), like Amanda mentioned, I stopped wanting sweet breakfast things too! I've found that my favorite typical breakfast is a mixture of sweet brown rice and barley, steamed lacinato kale (a bit sweeter and less gritty than regular) with a teeny drizzle of ume vinegar and sesame oil, and a big bowl of warm miso soup! Recently I've stumbled upon azuki bean and chickpea miso too, which are wonderful for taste and variety! I also recommend buying a rice-cooker (a staple in any japanese household!) They're cheap, easy to use, and you can cook any grain in them--I've done barley, quinoa, rice, millet, you name it, and it comes out perfectly! Just throw the grains and water in, press the switch, go shower, get ready for work, whatever, and 20-30 minutes later you have perfect yummy healthy grains :) Muffins, pancakes, who needs em!! :)
I tend to do the same as vegesaurus, except i use a mix of water and soy milk to make it a little creamier, + chopped dates and sunflower seeds as well as the apple. My other favourite is not superhero but just as yummy. Rye toast rubbed with a garlic clove, chopped scallions, diced ripe tomato, and sliced black olive. I usually team this with miso and wakame. Sooo good,so quick. Really want to try quinoa for breakfast, might try it when I have more time to play around on the weekend.
