Vegetable Stir-Fry

Most people prefer to eat vegetable stir-fry for either dinner or snacks, but this vibrant dish is an excellent way to start your day. You can dice your favourite vegetables and wok-toss them on a high flame with a small amount of oil. Sauteed broccoli, onions, bell peppers, capsicum, and carrots will provide your body with essential nutrients. Compliment a colourful plate of this dish with a glass of fresh juice.

Vegetable Frittata

Frittata is another easy way to add all kinds of vegetables to your meals. The best aspect of this dish is you can either make it with eggs or opt for plant-based options like semolina or chickpea flour. Make a thick mixture of eggs or flour with vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, carrots, spinach, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Pour it into a skillet and allow both sides to get crispy. Serve it hot with a hot cup of coffee and tea.

Vegetable Omelette

If you are bored of a plain omelette or you are among those who cannot bear the smell of eggs, add vegetables to it. When whisking the eggs, add finely chopped onions, broccoli, mushrooms, tomatoes, and bell peppers to it. You can also saute these vegetables in a skillet and pour whisked eggs over the mixture. Add salt to taste and pepper on the top and enjoy a delicious omelette.

Vegetable Breakfast Burrito

If you have some tortilla wraps in your freezer, you can make a mixed vegetable breakfast burrito. Make scrambled eggs and keep them aside. Saute vegetables like broccoli, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers and season them with salt and red chilli powder. Add a lettuce leaf and top it with vegetables, scrambled eggs, and avocados. Drizzle your favourite sauces and enjoy a hearty wrap. 

Quinoa Salad

Starting your mornings with a bowl of salad might seem a little out of the ordinary, but it is among the best meals to refuel your body with energy. You can quickly make quinoa salad and add roasted vegetables like mushrooms, bell peppers, spinach, and broccoli on the top. Garnish with some lemon juice, fresh coriander leaves, and sesame seeds to elevate the flavours.

Vegetable Breakfast Skewers

Roast vegetables like tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumbers, olives, bell peppers, onions, and others using skewers. Add these to a bowl and top them with salt to taste green chilli flakes, and lemon juice. You can enjoy the charred texture of vegetables with creamy yoghurt-based dip or hummus. It will be a refreshing addition to the morning spread.

Vegetable Hash

If you are in a hurry and want to make a healthy breakfast meal, start with vegetable hash. Dice potatoes, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, butternut squash, kale, spinach, onions, and mushrooms. Add all the vegetables to a bowl along with some seasoning and give it all a good mix. Top the bowl with fried eggs and enjoy a colourful and irresistible meal.
