I wanted to make some sort of (vegan) breakfast item that wasn’t LOADed with carbs (ie: bread and rice and grains and oats and more bread and…). Breakfast + carb free? Eh... you’re right; probably can’t happen in regards to vegan fare (although not impossible!). But, breakfast + grain free is a definite possibility. And, it includes a hypothetical Paleo stamp of approval.
Inspired by Whitney’s blog (http://whitegirllovesindianfood.wordpress.com/), I decided to do a rendition of Indian fare. Seemed like a “Good morning, Breakfast!” approach. Or better yet, a way more awesome alternative to a really discouraging breakfast status update of a friend proudly displaying blueberries and oatmeal. —lifeatthecircle
1 large (think: giant cereal bowl) or 2 slightly smaller servings.
chopped raw hazelnuts
oil (I used coconut)
diced potato (white or red is fine; I used a baking potato – which took longer to cook, but a thin-skinned potato – think: red – would cook faster)
chopped onion (I’d recommend a sweet variety – because: along with garlic – it duplicates the flavor of fenugreek, but use whatever you have)
chopped fresh broccoli
“milk” (I used plain almond milk)
minced garlic – OR – 1 clove fresh garlic, smashed and minced
