Meatless Monday: the Breakfast Dinner

This Meatless Monday, take back the breakfast dinner and enjoy this meat-free meal with all the morning fixings!

For me, few things rival the breakfast dinner—that is, breakfast foods eaten for dinner. Perhaps it’s a nostalgia thing; breakfast dinners are a favourite childhood memory of mine. Or maybe it’s one of those “so wrong it’s right” things—I mean, breakfast for dinner? If that doesn’t say rebel, I don’t know what does. For whatever reason, breakfast foods taste slightly more delicious when eaten in the evening.

Unfortunately, however, the traditional breakfast dinner is often rooted in saturated fat-laden bacon and sausage, making breakfast dinner a total artery clogger (bummer!).

This Meatless Monday, take back the breakfast dinner and enjoy this meat-free meal with all the morning fixings!

Jeera Alu (Potatoes Fried in Cumin): a modern take on the traditional hash browns. Cook them in a cast iron skillet for extra flavour and crispiness.

Vegetarian Molasses Baked Beans: just add the ingredients to your slow cooker and forget about them. Easy and delicious!

Quinoa and Avocado Scram Slam: vegans can skip the egg and Parmesan and instead use firm tofu crumbled and fried with salt, pepper, paprika, and nutritional yeast.

Tempeh “Chorizo”: an excellent substitute for sausage and bacon. Make ahead and freeze for an easy thaw-and-reheat addition to your breakfast dinner.

Banana Spelt Pancakes: spelt flour is packed with a broad array of vital nutrients including selenium, zinc, niacin, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus.

Acai Smoothie: wash it all down with this antioxidant-rich smoothie.
