The Easiest Plant-Based Breakfast
This took me about 15 minutes to make in the morning and was full of fermented goodness, protein, raw veggies, vitamin C, iron, and of course my vice, beyond sausages.
I don't eat these much because they are highly processed, but I'm not perfect and I'm still going to do things that make me happy once in a while- as should you!
Lately i've been eating breakfast, which I don't usually do. I don't get too hungry in the morning, but after listening to a recent podcast about womens Infradian Rhythm, I have been making more of an effort to break my fast (breakfast) within 12 hours. So far I've been loving it, especially since at the second half of a womens cyccle, we need up to 200 more calories per day for proper hormone and brain chemistry function. I highly recommend listening to that podcast :)
1/2 sweet onion
1 tomato, sliced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 pinch black salt and Braggs Seasoning
1 can great northern beans
1 teaspooon salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 handful baby spinach
2 tablespoons kimchi
In a skillet, I heated up 1 tablespoon of local olive oil that I got from a farm.
I sauteed 1/2 sweet onion and added spices such as salt, paprika, and and a blend from braggs aminos.
While these cooked, I heated up a can of Great Northern Beans in a separate pot.
I added a little bit of salt, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (this sweetness tastes great in beans and goes well with the beyond sausage)
I kept them on a low for the remainder of the time cooking.
Back to the skillet. I then added in my beyond sausage and let it cook with the onions. I chopped up some tomatoes and then tossed them in, reducing the heat to low/medium
*fun fact about tomatoes. Raw tomatoes are high in vitamin C, while cooked tomatoes are high in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant.*
I continued to cook them for about 7 minutes until the beyond sausage was nice and crispy.
I ate it with a big bowl of baby spinach, with the onions, tomatoes, beyond sausage, and beans. I topped it off with some organic kim chi and called it a day!
You can add eggs, tofu eggs, toast, or avocado to make it even tastier.
I love this breakfast because it's filling, sweet, spicy, savory, and full of protein and nutrients.
