Breakfast when Bear is far away working: fruit salad and granola

I’m craving for summer and its wonderful fruits. So I’ll go back in time and share with you a meal and some memories.

Breakfast
Fruity salad (watermelon, melon, apple, pear, tomato, carrot, mirabelle) with orange sweet sauce
Homemade granola

Bear is away working. My little eyes are puffy and tired as I’m not really disciplined in going early to bed when he’s away. I therefore needed a little cheering up breakfast full of vitamins. A little fruity salad topped with homemade granola with a orange caramel sauce.
A real treat!

Chocolate cream and cookies

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé


Breakfast

-A glass of almond milk (homemade)
American vegan cookies
Chocolate cream pot

It’s all sunny these days and it makes me feel so happy. So why not add the pleasure of a nice breakfast? I did Bear’s favourite chocolate creams, with some vegan American style cookies. The chocolate creams are really easy to make and can be stored one week in the fridge, and Bear is so found of them! The vegan cookies are soft ones like those I tasted in Boston. And instead of the traditional glass of milk I preferred almond milk which is easier to make than soya milk, tastier (in my opinion) but a little more expensive.

Oh! And I did a I’m-on-diet-girly version of the chocolate cream pots with low-fat chocolate powder rather than chocolate.

Canadian vegan pancakes

Breakfast
Pancakes (Canadian style)
Toffee
-Hot soya chocolate

Some mornings, I wake up and things seems so dark and useless. These mornings I do my best to shake off all these bad feelings and stick myself in the kitchen to favour myself with some breakfast treat. This time it was fluffy Canadian vegan pancakes. And as I don’t have any golden syrup in my cupboards, I reached for the toffee pot which mum taught me how to do not so long ago.

English breakfast

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Breakfast
Poached egg
Beans in sweet homemade tomato sauce
Homemade bread

Lille, cold freezing mornings though the sun is out. A scarf, gloves and hat are more than necessary. A little flat, tiny kitchen. Big enough for a proper English breakfast to give me the strength to fight the icy wind.

Porridge for wintery days

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Breakfast
Apple and cinnamon flavoured porridge
-Hot beverage made from soya milk and chocolate

Winter, grey and cold days, icy wind and snowy mountains. What can one dream of on such days? The little ogre in me longs for a basic savoury and fulfilling porridge. Here it’s the apple and cinnamon version. But I can also go for any other variation with cranberries, sultanas, bananas, pear or even chocolate.
