Sesame Thyme & Fig Toast on Rye
From my Quick and Easy Vegetarian Breakfasts video.
I start with a hearty, whole grain rye bread, toasted until perfectly crispy. Then, I like to spread on some plain whole milk yogurt, or you can use any yogurt you like. I like whole milk yogurt’s probiotic boost, and its rich protein and fat content makes this breakfast toast even more satiating and filling!
After the yogurt, I like to drizzle on a bit of honey to balance the tang of the yogurt, followed by sliced figs, fresh thyme, and sesame seeds. Sweet, savory, earthy, with a comforting fall-time feel—this fig toast is one of my faves!Print
Sauteed Spinach Egg Toast
From my Quick and Easy Vegetarian Breakfasts video.
This spinach egg toast is like the ultimate balanced breakfast toast idea. A flavorful helping of leafy greens, a protein-packed fried egg, and a dose of nutritious fats from the yogurt—all piled onto one tasty, whole grain toast! And, you can whip it up in just 5 minutes.
To start, get your bread of choice toasting while you saute spinach in a bit of sesame oil and salt. I use about 1 cup of spinach, but feel free to pack in as much as you’d like. It’ll all wilt down to nothing, in no-time!
With your bread toasted and spinach sauteed, you can start assembling your savory breakfast toast while your egg is frying in the pan. Or, feel free to top this egg toast with scrambled eggs, a poached egg, or whatever you prefer!
Spread yogurt onto the toast as your creamy base, then pile on that sesame sauteed spinach. Once your egg is fried or cooked to your liking, add it on top and garnish with some red pepper flakes and black sesame seeds. Personally, I just LOVE egg toast topped with a fried egg—my breakfast toast is always more delicious once it soaks up some of that yolky goodness!Print
