This post isn’t much, just a simple little breakfast idea that came together yesterday morning: whole grain cornbread + raw honey or jam + organic plain Greek yogurt.
What are your favorite breakfasts that you can pull together easily? Are there simple combinations that tend to reappear on your plate? There is just something so pleasing to me about a few casual components that can be assembled nearly effortlessly, and let you get on with reading the paper or other leisurely morning activities.
The vegan cornbread recipe I keep coming back to is from the book Vegan Lunch Box, though this time I used less maple syrup than called for, and brown rice flour (and xanthan gum) instead of whole wheat. If you use the full amount of syrup, the pan turns out sweet and almost cakelike.
If you’re wondering, yes, several of these ingredients are departures from my “norms.” I don’t typically use much flour (aiming instead for whole grains that are less processed) and I don’t buy animal proteins all the time. However, though I try to maximize plant foods, I do still love plain Greek yogurt. I don’t make it a weekly staple, but when I want some, I get a tub and enjoy it. And by the time yesterday morning rolled around, I’d been craving cornbread for days. I stirred some together as soon as we got out of bed. Which worked out nicely, because I wouldn’t mind using up a few random bags of cornmeal and flour before we clean out our apartment and move this summer.
I’d love to hear your favorite simple breakfast ideas in the comments section! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
