5 Quick Breakfast Options for Busy Mornings

I am always running out of the house in a hurry on weekday mornings, usually grabbing a granola bar or banana because I ran out of time to make breakfast.  Anyone else?  Well, I found 5 quick (10 minutes or less) recipes for those very days.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I cook plain quinoa each week and store it in the fridge for recipes like this.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl or mason jar to enjoy on the go.

Herbed Goat Cheese & Radish Tartines

4 slices gluten-free bread, toasted

1 raw garlic clove

3-ounces goat cheese, room temperature

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

4 sprigs fresh dill, de-stemmed & minced

4 sprigs flat-leaf parsley, de-stemmed & minced

4-5 radishes, sliced thin (use mandolin or paring knife)*

Micrograms, to top

Freshly cracked pepper

Sea salt, to taste

When your bread is toasted & still warm, rub raw garlic clove evenly over each slice. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, stir together goat cheese, lemon zest and fresh herbs until evenly combined. Spread herbed goat cheese evenly across each toast. Layer with sliced radish and top with microgreens. Season with flaky sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Serve immediately.

Piece of hearty toast (I prefer Dave’s Killer Bread)

½ Avocado

salt and pepper to taste

Open the avocado, remove the skin, and place half of the avocado in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste and smash.

Toast one piece of toast.

Cook egg to your preferred level.

Add the avocado to the top of the toast. Top with your egg. ENJOY!
