Pancake lovers out there will probably hate me for this, but I think that Americans get short changed when it comes to breakfast. The first time I had a full Turkish breakfast, it was like the clouds had parted and the plate had been sent down from the heavens. THIS is what breakfast should be.
There are no hard and fast rules about what is on the plate, as long as there is a little bit of everything: protein, fat, and carbs; meat, cheese, and veggies; savory and sweet. So, please, use your creative license.
You can eat it with bread on the side if you want, but you won’t miss it if it’s not there. It compliments coffee or tea or fresh juice – whatever is your morning drink of choice. And it is easy to prep in advance and throw it all on the plate first thing in the morning.
Best of all, this meal is so refreshing. It’s filling, but not heavy and very balanced in terms of flavors and nutrition. Plus, even though it’s called breakfast, it is a fantastic meal for any time of day!
