Breakfast Crisis, pt. 3


The last recipe that I tried in Mark Bittman’s savory breakfast makeovers was Wild Rice and Quinoa Breakfast Stuffing.  Absolutely what I like to eat, but again, not for breakfast.  The chewy coarseness of wild rice combines well with fluffy quinoa, which makes me feel all too healthy.  Add to it sauteed onions, fennel, and sausage (maybe not so healthy), it becomes fragrant, bringing out the sweetness of the grains.  I love it.

I still don’t have a breakfast resolution.  I loved the three savory recipes that I tried; the fourth, Wheat Berries with Sesame, Soy Sauce and Scallions, is all too familiar having tried a version with brown rice.  For the most important meal of the day, every day, I want to eat what is nutritionally best for me, quick, and delicious.  Maybe it’s about my favorite breakfast for dinner, an egg over greens.  Or full circle back to yogurt and granola.  Breakfast needs to get me out of bed in the morning, and that’s no easy task.
