Since my last post I have been making a real effort to eat breakfast. I still eat it later than I should but baby steps, right? At least I am eating something in the morning.
One of my creations that was so delicious was a refried bean, egg creation.
It was really quite simple.
First, I sliced off a piece of thick sourdough bread.
Then I opened a can of organic refried kidney beans (the kind that don’t have lard or hydrogenated oil in them), and put about 1/4 cup into a pan, added a little walnut oil and some water. I stirred this up and heated it so that the consistency was nice and creamy.
Next, I moved the beans to one side of the fry pan and cracked an egg in the same pan and fried it, over easy.
While the egg was cooking, I used 1/2 an avocado, juice of one key lime and some salt and pepper to make guacamole.
To assemble, I simply spread the beans into a circle on top of the toast, topped them with the egg and then carefully placed the the guacamole atop that. To that I added a sprig of fresh cilantro for garnish and viola!
The whole process took about 10 minutes.
This breakfast was able to satisfy my need for interesting, unique flavour as well as provide me with good nutrition and a full tummy for most of the rest of the day.
