Last weekend I was craving two things, fresh veggies and a breakfast scramble. I used to make breakfast scrambles that included eggs, cheese, milk, and whatever veggies we had on hand. I wasn’t really craving the eggs and dairy part of the scramble but more of the feel and memory of our family enjoying a leisurely breakfast on the weekend. Thankfully we had plenty of fresh veggies, leftovers and some diced potatoes in the freezer. Since there was no “scramble” involved this had to be known as a Breakfast Stir Fry.
Breakfast Stir Fry
- 1/2 chopped onion (I left them pieces big)
- 1 sliced carrot
- 1/2 sliced large bell pepper
- 1 cup diced potatoes, I used frozen but baked potato would work too. If they are not already cooked you’ll need to cook them first.
- 1/2 cup leftover beans
- 1 sliced jalapeno
- Bragg Liquid Aminos (optional)
- Add onion and carrot to a large, hot skillet (you will want one with a lid), stir regularly.
- After the onion and carrot cook for a few minutes add bell peppers, continue to stir regularly. If the food is beginning to stick to the pan add a few tablespoons of water.
- When the carrots are getting crisp tender and the onion translucent add the potatoes, beans and jalapeno. The potatoes will make everything stick!
- Once the potatoes and beans are warmed through add the Bragg Liquid Aminos stir one more time then add the spinach and asparagus, do not stir them, put on the lid. You want the spinach and asparagus to sit on top of the other veggies so they get steamed.
- Check everything for doneness after 5 minutes.
I served this in warm tortillas, both flour and corn. It was great in both. The corn tortillas added a great flavor to the breakfast. We also add fruit smoothies to help balance this meal. The potatoes really made this stir fry seem like breakfast food instead of dinner. I plan to make this a regular breakfast option at my house (and hopefully get a better picture).
This can be made with whatever you have on hand. The two things that are necessary (in my opinion) are onions and potatoes but feel free to use your favorite veggies.
