I love cooking with a wide variety of nature’s colors, the more the better. The different colors in foods offer specific phytochemicals that affect the body in unique ways, helping to nourish and rebuild individual body systems. Beyond that, it’s just beautiful and it makes me happy. Putting happy into the body is nutritious all on its own. I also love recipes that are quick and easy to put together in the morning. Quick and easy isn’t usually synonymous with healthy, but there’s no reason it can’t be. This recipe is a little bit longer than most of my morning go-to’s because of the caramelized onion but if you’re in a rush just lightly saute the onions. It really is so gratifying to put fresh, home cooked vegetables into your body, especially to start your day with. I hope you enjoy this colorful veggie packed recipe.
1 purple onion diced
1 sweet potato diced
7 brussel sprouts halved
½ yellow bell pepper diced
Saute diced onions in coconut oil until caramelized, about 20-30 mins. Dice the remainder of the vegetables while occasionally stirring the onions. Add in sweet potato, brussel sprouts and ¼ cup of water. Cover and let cook until soft. Add in the bell pepper and cook for a few minutes more. Add salt to personal preference. Serve with avocado. Add an egg for extra protein.
