Hello and Happy Sunday,
I put together a video to show four of my go to breakfasts after being asked by several friends what vegans eat for breakfast. Today I’m posting the four recipes along with the video in hopes to inspire new morning habits. All the recipes are on the sweeter side of the breakfast spectrum and all very simple but I’ve also made some staples which will make putting together a wholesome and delicious breakfast easy like; chia jam, rhubarb compote and a toasted muesli. I’ve tried to make these as fuss-free as possible and preparing your own condiments give you the opportunity to put exactly what you want inside and nothing else. The recipes also make much more than you’d use up in just one breakfast so you could prepare them on a free evening and enjoy them the rest of the week. However, remember that everywhere I have made my own staple you can of course replace that with a store bought alternative to save time or use fresh or frozen fruit for example instead of a jam or compote.
I’m hoping to make another video similar to this one but with savoury recipes, is that something ou guys are interested in? Would love to hear your thoughts and requests.
About the recipe:
This oatmeal, or porridge, is tainted yellow by the almighty turmeric. I like to spice up my oatmeal as it’s something I make most days of the week and this is my new favourite way to do so. The recipe is very basic and sweetened naturally by raisins that I cook into the oats making them really gooey and sweet. The turmeric brings that golden milk flavour to the oats, especially since I cook them with half milk and half water to create that creamy texture that I know we all love. Turmeric is also meant to be a powerhouse of a spice with properties beneficial for our health and I love the fact that it works as an anti-inflammatory. To top it all off I like to sprinkle this oatmeal with hemp seeds, which is a good source of plant protein, as well as some fresh or frozen berries, which makes a nice colour clash with the yellow oats, before pouring over some more (plant) milk.
