It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday, and this one features two epic breakfast meals. In case you don’t know me, you should know that I love breakfast!
For breakfast I made a peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowl, and it turned out so good that I made a recipe for it–go try it ASAP!
BREAKFAST Part 2/Brunch
For brunch I made this epic breakfast sandwich with baked sweet potato home fries and sauteed kale. I got the idea to make a vegan breakfast sandwich from Chocolate Covered Katie, and the filling is her recipe. (I used tahini not vegan mayo.) The patty is Minimalist Baker’s spicy tempeh breakfast sausage–I omitted the oil and added some extra red pepper for extra spice. I also prepped them the night before so they would have time to marinate and prepped the cheese sauce as well–it’s this recipe from The Misfit Baker.
For the home fries, I chopped up 3 small sweet potatoes, sprinkled them with garlic and onion powder and paprika, and baked them on a parchment lined baking sheet for 30 minutes. While they were baking I sauteed a few kale leaves in water with some garlic and onion. When my fries and patties were done, I assembled my sandwich on a brown rice English muffin. This meal took some effort, but it was so worth it! YUM. Did I mention I love breakfast?!
Coffee & a Treat
Later I had a coffee and sweets break and had this hearty slice of my vegan/gluten & oil free Blueberry Coffee Cake. This cake is so delicious and also rich and filling, so this was actually sort of like breakfast part three!
For dinner I had a leftover tempeh sausage patty and leftover bean filling, and I also made some wild rice, steamed broccoli, and red peppers to go with it. I cooked the rice in my rice cooker with some Simple Girl dry bouillon base that I got recently in a sample pack and some turmeric. (I’ve been trying to incorporate turmeric into more of my foods after reading about its health benefits in the book How Not to Die.) And I topped everything with some of the leftover cheese from my breakfast sandwich–it was delicious!
Did you make any yummy vegan food this week? Let me know in the comments!
