Yes, a ‘non-traditional’ option for breakfast, but I must admit, I am a little ‘cerealed’ out. I know that I can have eggs, lean bacon, etc for breakfast as well, but I prefer to keep my protein portions for a little later during the day. And, I woke up with a CRAVING for veggies 🙂 So why not incorporate it into the most important meal of the day? 😀 Used mostly ‘free’ veggies as well.
I discovered some sweet potato ‘noodles’ at Food Lovers Market, but you can just use grated sweet potato or use a spiraliser, if you’ve got one? I got my spiraliser at Clicks, very affordable and adds a lot of fun on your plate! 🙂 Okay, here goes:
80g sweet potato noodles (‘normal’ grated potato will work great as well!) – I pre-cooked it in the microwave for about 4 minutes.
80g zucchini (baby marrow) noodles (saw it is available at Woolies and Foodlovers’, maybe a few other places as well – these I just made using my spiraliser)
50g leeks, thinly sliced
50g yellow pepper, chopped
100g chopped tomato
100ml veggie stock
Salt and Pepper to taste
Sweet Chili Sauce
Add all the veggies except the sweet potato in a saucepan, together with the veggie stock and bring to boil. Cook for a couple of minutes until tomato is soft. Stir in sweet potato noodles, season and cook for another minute or so. Serve with a drollop of sweet chili sauce.
