Hey, guys, it’s Nisha. Welcome back to
RainbowPlantLife. Today I have a super simple, short video for you on quick easy
vegan breakfast recipes that are perfect for back-to-school or to take with you
on the go to work. These vegan breakfast recipes take just 5 minutes or less to
make so you can have a healthy breakfast in no time. I made a similar video last
month on 5-minute vegan breakfast recipes, so if you want to check out
those, I will link to that video in the description box below. And if you enjoy
this video, I would love it if you shared it with others and hit that “thumbs up”
button. Alright, let’s get into the recipes. Our first 5-minute vegan
breakfast recipe is peanut butter and jelly stuffed sweet potatoes. To make
this dish quick, I’ll be steaming the sweet potato in the microwave. First, I
scrubbed the potato and then I pricked it all over with a fork so that it has room
to breathe and cooks evenly. Then I wrapped it in a damp paper towel to help get that steaming effect. For a medium-sized potato, my microwave takes 4 minutes to cook, but your cooking time might vary depending on the strength of
your microwave. I try to rotate my potato every minute or so to ensure even
cooking. Once you microwave it, the potato will look a little shriveled. That’s okay. We’re going to slice the potato in half and top it with a plant-based yogurt. This is almond milk yogurt and I also really like coconut yogurt. Then we’ll top it with some natural
peanut butter as well as jam. I like this jam because it’s sweetened
with apple juice so there are no added sugars, but it’s still sweet and
delicious. Finally, I’m topping my potatoes with
coconut shreds and pumpkin seeds. You can use any kind of nuts or seeds that you like. Our next easy vegan breakfast recipe is a protein avocado toast. I know avocado toast is a bit basic, but I’m upgrading mine to make it into a
complete balanced meal. I’m starting with one half of a medium avocado. Make sure to use a ripe avocado, as it will be easier to mash. Then I’m adding the juice
of about 1/4 of a lime and a generous sprinkling of sea salt. Mash that all
together until you have a thick, creamy texture that resembles guacamole. Then we’ll spread our mashed avocado onto two slices of toast. You can use any bread that you like. And then add some chickpeas. These are
just canned chickpeas that I’ve rinsed and drained, and I love adding them for
protein. I usually add about a half cup but they don’t all fit onto the toast so
I serve some on the side. Then I’m adding some hemp seeds, about a tablespoon or two. In three tablespoons of hemp seeds you’ll get 10 grams of
protein, so it’s a really easy way to add protein to your breakfast in the morning. Finally I’m adding some red chili flakes
for spice and minced parsley as a garnish. And for a complete breakfast,
I’ll serve this toast with some fresh strawberries. My last quick vegan breakfast
idea is a fruit and granola parfait. We’re going to upgrade it in two ways,
though, so it’s not going to be your average parfait. First let’s talk about
the granola. I love to make granola at home so I can control what goes in there. But if I don’t have time to make it on the weekend, I’ll settle for a store-bought
option. To make it as healthy as possible, I look for granolas that don’t
use highly refined sugars or refined oils, and I try to stick to brands that
use coconut sugar or maple syrup and coconut oil instead. Then I add a blend
of superfood seeds to make the granola healthier. This is a tablespoon each of
chia seeds, flax seeds, and hemp seeds. Each of these seeds is full of healthy
fats and a decent amount of protein. The next way I’m going to upgrade this parfait is with the yogurt. I’m using that same almond milk yogurt, and then I’m going to
add a few tablespoons of protein powder. This is a plant-based protein powder
made with peas, brown rice and ancient grains. Just mix the protein powder in
thoroughly until it’s smooth and no clumps are left. Then simply layer the parfait in a
glass jar. Start with the granola on the bottom, add your protein yogurt, and then
your fruits of choice. I’ll start with blackberries. Look how cute these local
blackberries from the farmers market are. Then some cherries and currants because it’s summer and they’re in season. If you want to take this parfait to go, whether it’s
for school or work, don’t fill it up as much as I did. Fill it up to the top, seal it with a lid, and then it’s ready to eat when you are. Well that’s it for my 5-minute vegan breakfast ideas video. I hope you enjoyed
it, and if you have any suggestions for future topics that you’d like to see,
