Savory Breakfast Bowl

  By Kris Giovanini  ,

December 15, 2015

This versatile bowl is a great way to start your day!


1 ½ cups cooked grain

1 cup baby spinach

2 T dried cranberries, apricots or cherries

2 T chopped walnuts, hemp seeds or other nut or seeds

1 T flax, walnut or olive oil

1 T Yellow Rose Parmesan or nutritional yeast flakes

2 tsp. tamari


Put the cooked grain and spinach in a small pan and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring often, for about 2 minutes or until hot.

Transfer the mixture to a small bowl. Add the dried fruit, nuts or seeds, oil, nutritional yeast and tamari and mix well. Now enjoy!

This recipe is from "Eat Like You Give A Damn" by Michelle Schwegmann and Josh Hooten (Book Publishing Company, 2015). It’s a wonderful cookbook for those new to plant-based eating and long time vegans alike.

The recipe for the Yellow Rose Parmesan is in the cookbook on page 50, but you can also substitute nutritional yeast.

This is one of my breakfast favorites, although I also enjoy it for lunch or dinner. I make my savory bowl with short grain brown rice, baby spinach, hemp seeds, olive oil and cranberries, but the recipe is very adaptable and a fantastic way to use up leftover cooked grains. Use kale instead of spinach, quinoa instead of rice and so forth. The key is the grain, vegetable, nut and fruit combination with the simple dressing of oil and tamari.
