Ingredients for your next breakfast

  • EXTRA FIRM TOFU: When eating tofu raw and especially for breakfast (as it mimics scrambled eggs so well) the texture of an extra firm tofu is essential. It also means you can skip the pressing process (removing excess liquid) instead you can simply dab with a paper towel and you’re ready to CRUMBLE! Tofu is an amazing breakfast choice. Loaded with plant protein, calcium and iron. It’s a perfect way to start the day. 
  • CAYENNE: For a wack to start off your day! I love cayenne. You can add as much or as little as you like depending on your spice tolerance. Cayenne also aids digestion so it’s a perfect addition. 
  • BLACK PEPPER: Fresh ground black pepper is simply an essential. We are using very simple ingredients all of which balance perfectly. 
  • CORN KERNELS: Sweet pops of bright corn add not only texture but a beautiful sweet flavor to counterbalance the spice. I simply used drained canned corn KERNELS 🙂 
  • BABY YELLOW BELL PEPPER: These sweet and crunchy beauties are not only packed full of vitamins and minerals they bring a slight Smoky sweetness that pairs so beautifully with spice. If you can’t find the baby ones. You can use slice red yellow or orange bell pepper 
  • TOMATO: Sweet and acidic. I love using raw tomatoes. They maintain all their vitamins and are a bright and beautiful addition. I used perfectly ripe Roma tomatoes. But beefsteak tomatoes or even heirloom would be magical 
  • KALE: I’m here to show you that kale is worth the hype! Brimming with so many amazing healthy benefits. When prepared and paired right it can be such a great addition to your meals. 
  • SUNFLOWER SEEDS: Adding healthy fats, iron and protein. Seeds are such a great addition to meal times. They add the most amazing crunch to this breakfast. 
  • AVOCADO: Creamy and cooling. Avocado acts as a creamy dressing. A little with each bite. Cuts through the spice and is pure deliciousness 
  • HEMP SEEDS: Another pump up of healthy plant protein. Hemp is such a go to if you’re following a plant based diet. These beautiful lil green wonders not only taste great. They add amazing texture and nutrients to the dish. 
  • READY MADE RICE/QUINOA: I love making life easier and finding ways to cut on cooking time. If you happen to have leftover rice or quinoa. Perfect. Use that. Or I just happened to have found an amazing ready made heat and go quinoa pack. You can of course just make quinoa too.

So, whether you’re a seasoned vegan or just looking to add more plant-based goodness to your mornings, this bowl is your answer. It’s a celebration of vibrant flavors and a reminder that breakfast can be both nutritious and indulgent. Dive in, savor the spice, and power up your day! 💥
