There are few things I like doing more on the weekend than cooking. It’s my time to create recipes, put a little extra into what I’m making, as well as prepping my food for the week! Since it’s been extremely cold in Texas, I’ve been craving more hot breakfasts and less cold smoothies. Enter my vegetable delight breakfast bowl.
This dish is colorful, filling, nutritious, and a perfect edition to wake you up on a cold Sunday morning. There’s no major prep work either, just chopping and cooking vegetables. That’s it!
So without further ado…let us begin!
You will need:
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 cup kale
- 1 cup diced sweet potato
- 1 package (8 oz) mushroom of your choice
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1/2 cup sprouts of your choice
- 1/2 a red or green sweet pepper
- 1/2 a yellow or orange sweet pepper
- 2 tbsp coconut oil or water
Chop all the vegetables except the avocado, and set aside. Star by cooking the sweet potato as they take the longest. On medium high heat, put a 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil or water in your pan, and cook on high until the potatoes are golden brown on the edges. Remove from heat and put in your bowl.
Cook the mushrooms the same, on high heat until they are golden brown. Do the same to the onions and the slices of pepper, adding the oil to your pan as needed.
Turn the heat down, and saute the kale until it reaches your desired texture. You can cook it to where it is still green and has a crunch, or when it’s less green and more wilted and soft. It is up to you.
Once the kale is cooked, place it on your bowl as well. Arrange your vegetables in a circle. Slice the avocado last, as if it is cut open before it will start to brown. Arrange the sprouts in the middle of the bowl. If you want to top the sprouts with the avocado, feel free.
And voila, your bowl is ready! You can eat this with some tortillas and a side of hot sauce, for a great Mexican vegan breakfast! This bowl is very versatile as you can use any other type of potato, pepper or green vegetable like spinach or collard greens if you prefer! Try different combinations and see what works for you!
