Looking for something different to eat in the morning? Here are some quick, healthy and delicious ideas for a warm breakfast, quick enough to make before work or school.
Quiche in a Mug
1 large egg
1 1/2 tablespoons milk (substitutes: Choice of non-dairy)
1 teaspoon melted unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
4 small grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 slice torn pieces of Ezekiel bread
1 tablespoon grated cheese (e.g., cheddar cheese, mozzarella, etc.)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs, plus more for garnish (e.g., green onions, Italian parsley, chives, etc.)
Directions: In a microwavable mug, add egg, milk, melted butter, salt, and pepper and whisk until thoroughly mixed and egg whites are completely broken up. Add halved grape tomatoes, torn bread, grated cheese, and chopped herbs on top of egg mixture, making sure ingredients are evenly dispersed and have not settled to bottom of mug. Ingredients will stay settled within the quiche mixture better if you do not whisk ingredients into egg mixture. Place mug in microwave, and cook on high for 1 minute, just until egg is completely cooked and quiche is slightly puffed. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve immediately.
Cinnamon Maple Breakfast Quinoa – (Serves Two)
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup cold water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon + more for garnish
2 teaspoons butter
milk or cream, to taste
maple syrup, to taste
banana or apple slices
DIRECTIONS: Place quinoa in water and rinse well. Drain quinoa, then stir in 1 cup cold water, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon butter. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Stir and microwave 3 more minutes. Remove from microwave, cover with foil and sit 2 minutes. Fluff quinoa and stir in remaining butter. Divide between 2 bowls and top with milk, maple syrup, banana or apple slices and cinnamon to taste.
