Quick and Easy Breakfast

Posted on

This recipe just came to me this morning while I was out in my garden picking broccoli. I am so in love with fresh broccoli, there is nothing like it. If you ever get the chance to grow your own do it or pick some up at your local farmers market.

For all of the recipes that I post on this blog  I only use FRESH fruits and veggies. You can absolutely use frozen if you like, but when you can use fresh, because fresh is always best. We also use  farm fresh eggs, we stopped buying eggs from the grocery store about three years ago and for a couple of reasons, one they taste so much better, you know where they come from, it helps support local farmers and you can read more about it here. Let’s get cooking…..

1/2 TBS Kerrygold Butter, Coconut Oil or Ghee

1 Small Garlic Clove

1/2 cup Fresh Broccoli

1/2 cup Chopped Zucchini

1/2 cup Crimini Mushrooms

1 Chicken and Apple Sausage from Aidelles cut into cubes

2 Farm Fresh Eggs cooked the way you like them

Heat up a medium sized skillet, once heated add the butter or your favorite oil. I start off with the broccoli it is the veggie that takes the longest to cook, then I add the zucchini and then the mushrooms. I set the veggies aside into a bowl and then in the same pan I brown up the sausage, it is already cooked but I like to get a little color and crunchy texture on the sausage. Add the veggies back into the pan when the sausage is to your liking and toss together. Pour mixture back into that same bowl you had your veggies in (no need to dirty another dish) and then cook your two eggs in that same pan (again no need to dirty another pan, less dishes to wash later = winning) . I like mine over medium, and my honey likes his scrambled, both ways are delicious

Chilled Asparagus Soup

Posted on


One of my favorite things to eat lately is Purple Asparagus from the farmers market. It is so sweet, nutty, tender and delicious I just can’t get enough of it. It is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner, even a snack. Some of my favorite ways to prepare asparagus is on the grill, or sauteed with peppers, broccoli, onions and garlic with a farm fresh over easy egg on top.



The last time I prepared the above I only used the tips of the asparagus, and I was thinking what I could make with the left over and then I remembered a chilled soup that a friend of mine was talking about so I thought I would try it out. I am so glad that I did because it is soooo good!!!

Chilled Asparagus Soup

This recipe only has a few ingredients, it is super easy, super yummy, and anyone can eat it…. This recipe can be raw, vegan, low calorie, low carb, gluten and dairy free, paleo anything that you desire….


20-30 Asparagus Spears

Half of a Sweet Onion

1 Garlic Clove or more if you like

Water or Chicken Broth

Lime Juice just a small wedge for brightness and freshness

Salt and Pepper to taste

Small pinch of Red Pepper Flakes for some Heat

About 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil


Optional: Green Onions, Sour Cream, Greek Yogurt, Vegan Sour Cream etc.

My favorite way to prepare this is to saute the onions, garlic, and red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in the olive oil. I am not a fan of raw onion flavor and I like the sweetness that onions have after they are sauteed a little bit. Then put in your blender or food processor with the asparagus and blend together until smooth, it will be a little thick so this is when you will add the water or chicken broth to get the consistency that you desire. DONE!!! See how easy that was!!!!

Chill for about an hour

Pour into Bowls

Squeeze a little lime over the top,

add some green onions and a little greek yogurt and ENJOY!!!


This is the way I like to prepare this, remember you can make this a completely raw vegan soup if you so wish! I do my best to make recipes that satisfy everyone. I am not all raw or vegan but I do enjoy incorporating lots of plant based meals into my diet so you will find a little bit of everything here!!!
