Quick Breakfast

Breakfast is difficult for me.  Most of the time, I’d rather eat a turkey sandwich or bowl of soup for breakfast than cereal or eggs.  Ok, really, I’d like nothing more than to skip breakfast but we all know what a no-no that is.

I’m enjoying this quick recipe though. 

5-minute cereal:

2 tbsp quick cook barley, 2 tbsp bulgar, 2 tbsp oats mixed with 2/3 cup water.

Microwave 2 minutes

Stir in cinnamon (optional raisins or dried fruit)

Microwave 3 minutes

Then I add whatever I have.  This morning, I added sliced banana, maple syrup, walnuts, frozen blueberries, and coconut.  Finally, I stir in just a little bit of milk.

I don’t like oatmeal or most hot cereals but the bulgar and nuts gives just the right texture for my palate.

More Bulgar Joy

Why did no one tell me about this wonderful grain??  I am thoroughly loving bulgar.  Delicious veggie chili recipe I concocted last night: 

I sauteed chunky zucchini, carrots, jalapeno pepper, and onions in grapeseed oil until the veggies were somewhat tender.  (I found grapeseed oil at the flea market yesterday and wanted to use it).  In a separate pot, I cooked 1 cup of bulgar in 2 cups of water (simmer covered for 15 minutes).  After eating three spoonfuls of plain bulgar, I added the veggies and some cumin and chili powder.  I stirred in a can of black beans and a can of diced tomatoes.  Let’s see, did I do anything else?  I don’t think so.  I served with homemade rosemary bread from Monday’s dinner.  Scott ate two bowls so I call my healthy vegetarian meal a sweet success!

In other news, the funniest comment I overheard at the flea market yesterday:  Old man says to other old man, “I can get you any legs in Seneca.”  I hope he was talking about antiques?
