There’s nothing better than a satisfying and decadent breakfast; especially on the weekend. This recipe is delicious from the first bite and it continues to get better.
The Breakfast Bonanza
3-4 sweet potatoes (sliced 1/4 inch thick)
1 can of beans (white or black)
2-3 vine tomatoes (coarsely chopped) (Roma work just as well if you can’t get those)
1 avocado (sliced finely)
1 1/2 cups of basmati rice
1/2 tablespoon turmeric
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
1-2 green onions (chopped)
Pre-heat the oven to 415f. Once the potatoes are chopped, place them in a glass bowl and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to cover them. Then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, turning once.
At the same time you place the potatoes in, boil the rice as per the instructions (typically 25 minutes). After 15 minutes, heat up the beans on medium heat to cook through.
Once the potatoes and rice are done, season the rice with the turmeric, garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
Put the potatoes to one side. Chop up the tomatoes and sliced the avocado. Put to one side.
Now layer the dish. First put a layer of rice and then the sweet potatoes. Cover the rice and potatoes with the beans, tomatoes, and avocado.
Bonus Breakfast Sauce (optional):
To make the most amazing, guilt free and breakfast sauce of all time you will need but a few ingredients:
3/4-1 cup of cashews.
1/2 cup melted non dairy butter (Earth Balance I find works best)
Dash of turmeric and salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Juice of one lemon (should be roughly 3 tablespoons. Add more or less to taste)
3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
1/2 cup of warm water
Simply put the cashews in a blender and grind to a flour like texture.
Scrape the sides and add the lemon juice, warm water, turmeric, salt, and nutritional yeast until creamy. Melt the butter and add it slowly into the blender and then blend again to incorporate the butter into the sauce. Serve immediately.
Add the sauce on top of the amazingness you’ve just created and then add the green onion and sriracha or other hot sauce of your choosing.
