OMG I think I received the best email in the world yesterday! My vitamix is on its way!!!!!!!! Of course todays Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow, but I am sooooooo excited 😀
Okay, so since I had quite a few hours before I had to really get ready for work, I decided I wanted to spend a little more time than normal on making breakfast. I really wanted to do something that not many people dare to do. I wanted to make breakfast sushi.
What?? Raw fish for breakfast? yeah no. It’s just an omelet in a nori wrap, but I’m calling it sushi 🙂
If you want to read about the benefits of having eggs and why they’re a superfood, check out the entry I posted yesterday. (click here).
For this recipe you are going to need
1. 1 egg
2. 1 egg white (or another egg if you really like the taste of whole eggs)
3. Cooked peppers, mushrooms, and onions
4. a nori wrap
5. Spinach (I heated it in the microwave for a bit just to give it a more cooked texture)
5. hot sauce and or any other seasoning you would put on an omelet I just like hot sauce 🙂 (Especially Franks hot sauce for any Buffalo folks)
Start out by making scrambled eggs. I somehow managed to do this in the microwave by mixing the eggs with a bit of water and stirring them every 30 seconds.
Add your seasonings to the eggs. (I added a bit of black pepper too)
Place the egg on top of your nori wrap
Put on your peppers, mushrooms, and onions
And then finally your spinach. I also added some hot sauce on top at this point
Then roll your heart out ❤
I definitely think I may have put in too many vegetables and spinach because this was quite difficult to cut into pieces as small as I did. One may have been sacrificed in the process, but oh well I made it work 🙂
Yayyy non-sushi sushi!!!
To make this a balanced breakfast, I decided to get even MORE creative and make a fruit parfait for myself. (I have a ton of half cut bananas and fresh pineapple that needed a use). I also had a half used plain greek yogurt container that I needed to finish… weird I know, but it’s the truth.
To make this I took
1. 1/2 container plain greek yogurt
2. some honey
4. 2 tsp pb2 (come on I had to 🙂 )
5. chopped fresh pineapple
6. half a banana cut up
7. kashi go lean crunch or any other type of granola
9. dark chocolate cacao nibs
I honestly don’t remember the last time I made a fruit parfait, so I kinda guessed for how I should layer it. Next time I’m going to put the fruit down first because I found I was searching for the yogurt until I hit the bottom and had way too much. I also have some plans for making parfaits when I get my vitamix so be on the look out for that!
So pretty 🙂
