A Savory Einkorn Breakfast to Start the Day Right

0 September 15, 2014 - Archive

Chaotic mornings often lead us to either wolf down an unhealthy breakfast or skip the meal altogether, but neither will give your body the pep you need to make it through your day! In my last post, I shared a few tips to support energy and mental focus throughout the day, and today I offer my final suggestion—a delicious and fortifying morning meal, so you can start off on the right foot.

 

To create a recipe that is low in gluten and provides both fiber and protein, I have integrated Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Spaghetti into a savory breakfast. You can cook fresh spaghetti or use leftover spaghetti from a previous meal.

 

Ingredients:

½ box of Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Spaghetti, precooked

2 handfuls of organic baby spinach

1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved

5 cloves roasted garlic, chopped

¾ cup chicken stock

3–4 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon ground flax

4 drops Basil Essential Oil

3 drops Lemon Essential Oil

2–3 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Serves 2

  1. In a large saucepan, combine garlic, flaxseed, olive oil, and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  2. Add spinach and tomatoes to saucepan and cook until tomatoes become tender.
  3. Drop Basil and Lemon essential oils into the pan and mix thoroughly.*
  4. Place the cooked spaghetti directly into the pan and stir until all the pasta has been integrated into the sauce. Once pasta becomes warm, remove from heat.
  5. In a separate pan, cook eggs as desired (over easy or poached is recommended). Divide pasta onto two plates and place the eggs on top of each serving.

 

Voila! You now have a unique, simple, and satisfying way to start the morning. This recipe can be customized too—simply swap out the vegetables for your own take on this easy-to-make breakfast.

* Although heating essential oils may diminish their beneficial properties, the oils used in this recipe are for flavor only. If desired, you may add the essential oils after the spaghetti is already warmed.
