Breakfast help
« on: March 07, 2012, 11:31:16 PM »
Hello, I've decided to fast this Great Lent, and need help with some ideas for breakfast that are not cereal or something common. Any help is greatly appreciated, many years!

Olives.

Bread. Plain, or, on days where oil is allowed, sprinkled with, or dipped in oil, or oil and vinegar, with or without dried herbs or a bit of sugar on top.  Accompanied with black tea, herbal tea, or black coffee. Very traditional among Mediterraneans, even when it isn't Lent.

They might not be in season everywhere in the world. But, if available, sprinkled with oil and dried herbs make a delicious Lenten sandwich.

I do not eat breakfast, but there are fast-compliant bagel that I have for dessert on occasion (including blueberry, cinnamon-raisin, plain).

I have found cheap bread machines useful for lent. I think all bread machines make lousy bread, but they do allow you to make a dough ready at the time that you need it (in the morning, for example) and precise measurements are not needed since you can make the appropriate adjustments during the final kneading by hand. Usually I make cinnamon-raisin or cinnamon-apple sticky buns but there is no limitation. You can use canned pie filling if you want to minimize your effort.

Try this one:

http://www.joyofbaking.com/PoundCake.html

 Replace the eggs and milk and b utter with a 16 oz. can of pumpkin puree, and add cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, coriander, etc.

Add the pumpkin puree to the dry ingredients until you get a workable moist dough/batter. Then freeze/save the rest of your can.

As for the apple, cut it into thin wedges, pour half your dough in the pan, add the slices vertically, then pour the rest on.

Should work.

At least in the United States, there is one tomato variety that is available year around and is vastly superior to all tomatoes that are not home grown. It is called "Campari".

I often have hot cereal, no milk, with maple syrup for flavoring.

For a treat, I like German potato pancakes, using Ener-G egg substitute. I didn't see a recipe exactly like mine on-line (but many are close). Serve with apple sauce for lent.

Tofu Scramble, easy & good (I actually enjoy tofu dishes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRfPkJC2fJ4&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Sometimes I like soup, especially Miso soup, for breakfast.

A few years ago I drove my son to his first day of High School. As we rounded the corner there was a petite  young girl standing just outside the school smoking a cigarette and hold a really big cup of Starbucks Coffee..... getting fortified for the day, I guess.

Quite the sight.

You just inspired me James. I was given a gift of about 2 lbs of fresh Frutti di Mare/Seafood Mix (squid rings, mussels, octopus, shrimp; I will have to separate out the imitation crab logs). I am going to see what it is like with raisins, apples, cinnamon, carrots, celery, parsley, onions, as part of a fried rice dressing.

A grocery store nearby sells Cross Buns throughout western Lent, but of course, I realize that these buns may not be available in stores in all regions. These Cross Buns are Lent friendly (no dairy and such), but can not pass the allergy test because they are prepared in the same area and equipment as goods that do contain those ingredients. I am told that these Cross buns are an acquired taste, but I enjoy them for breakfast.

This is an update James. I thought my proposal would be an act of self flagellation but it turned out to be the best octopus-containing dish I have made so far (I dislike octopus, but at $1.99/lb for baby octopus from Vietnam it is worth the exploratory effort every lent). Based on my impressions, I do not think that the apples raisins contributed very much with the exception of providing complementary sweetness. I made a last minute decision of slicing a "navel" orange that was on sale at 6 lb/$1 that was curiously red rather than orange inside. This was placed on top of the rice when the seafood was added during the last 10 min of simmering. The squid and octopus seemed to absorb and impart the flavor of the orange rind and balanced the 1 tablespoon  of cinnamon that I put in during the initial sauteing of the basmati rice/onions/celery/carrots.

Sometimes it pays off to be rash and reactionary.

ps- the imitation crab logs that I separated out proved to be half the weight of the mix. I assumed it was pollack but I am not sure, it might be rolled squid based on its appearance upon cooking separately.

Sounds like you purchased a blood orange - which would compliment the octopus perfectly! I was curious how the recipe would turn out when I read your post - I've had awful results with seafood mixes. Removing the imitation crab was really smart. I'm curious how you seasoned the dish - I would never have tried cinnamon with octopus, but with blood orange, it makes sense. Is this something you would make again? What changes?

I was curious if there were any octopus/blood orange recipes out there, and found this one: http://www.globalgourmet.com/food/cookbook/2010/seasonal-cooking/octopus-cranberry-bean.html
It uses some of the same ingredients. I think you're really on to something!

Thanks. I never came across a blood orange before. I just looked at some google images, mine appear to be the light red variety. I based the dish on my turkey stuffing, swapping invertebrates for organs and lots of cinnamon for a small amount of sage, but it was the last minute addition of orange slices that made the dish. I will make it again with changes. I will know more after eating this dish for the next three days.

Handful of nuts!  ...and a cup of coffee!



This is actually sane as well.

Thanks. I never came across a blood orange before. I just looked at some google images, mine appear to be the light red variety. I based the dish on my turkey stuffing, swapping invertebrates for organs and lots of cinnamon for a small amount of sage, but it was the last minute addition of orange slices that made the dish. I will make it again with changes. I will know more after eating this dish for the next three days.

This is pure brilliance.

5-Hour Energy or Red Bull. 

Coffee is vile but I drink it all the same sometimes.  A pinch of cocaine goes a long way for a productive morning.

If I actually ate breakfast I'd probably have Cheerios and Boulevard.  Fake milk just strikes me as odd.
