A savory breakfast bowl with broccoli rice, brussels sprouts, sweet potato, avocado and eggs. This is a great way to start the day when you have a little bit of extra time and can easily be made vegan!
I can’t remember if I mentioned this already, but I started a new job about three weeks ago. It’s still with the same company, but a completely different role and work schedule. I now work Monday-Friday, which I’ve never worked in my entire life! The weekends are now spent with my kids and husband, and that means I have to figure out how and when I can do recipe testing and shooting.
It was inevitable that I would take off a few weeks to get used to my new gig, but it’s finally starting to feel more comfortable for me. Hopefully, that means I’ll be blogging more often again and get a new routine down. There will be one more week that’s still a little off because I’ll be in California for 5 days in March! I’m really excited since I’ve never been to the west coast before, and we’ll be busy running around at the Natural Products Expo!
Something else that I should address is that this recipe includes eggs. I share primarily vegan recipes on this blog, but it always felt strange since my family eats eggs on a regular basis. We only buy organic and pasture-raised eggs, and luckily we’re able to get them local, too. I’ll most likely make the recipes easy enough to keep completely vegan, like this one, so that it’s easy for everyone!
If you don’t eat eggs, then the broccoli rice and brussels sprouts are flavorful enough on their own! You can even replace the eggs with tofu, tempeh, or beans – there are so many options to make this vegan-friendly.
On the opposite end, if you do eat eggs, then you can make them hard-boiled, sunny-side up or scrambled instead! I like to cook eggs in coconut oil with a bunch of garlic and spices, but you can cook them however you like!
Broccoli Rice, Brussels Sprouts & Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl
I like to make this broccoli rice bowl for breakfast when I have some extra time in the morning and I’m craving savory food. It’s really easy to make – you just need to shred the broccoli and brussels sprouts in a food processor or blender and heat through! If you don’t have the right attachments to shred vegetables, then you can cut the brussels sprouts into thin strips (that’s what I did!).
This recipe is great for any meal because it’s full of protein, fiber, healthy fats and a ton of vitamins and minerals. I usually top mine off with hemp seeds, hot sauce, lemon juice, pink salt and pepper. Enjoy!
