Veggie Breakfast


On an every day basis, I’m definitely more into eating a sweet breakfast and I tend to rotate between porridge, overnight oats, smoothie bowl or granola, plus the weekend specials such as pancakes or waffles. Back when I lived in the UK, the full English breakfast was what my mates used to have most weekends, but I never really got into it, as the veggie versions of the full English often didn’t match my expectations. Once in a while however, I do love something on the savoury side of things for breakfast, and I have found memories of egg baps on camping weekends and mighty avocado on toast before going to teach yoga.

Here, I’ve gathered in a plate what, to me, makes a perfect savoury veggie breakfast. It is also totally fitted for a weekend brunch or if you’re after a light lunch. Other delicious topping options could include chilli flakes, za’atar or fresh herbs. If you’re not into poached eggs, you could very well replace it with a fried egg or soft boiled egg.

What about you, are you more into sweet or savoury breakfasts? Do you have any favourite combos?
