Christina’s Cornbread Brunch Salad

Posted in Breakfast, Meal Ideas, Recipes, Vegetarianism on December 11, 2009 by Christina

Cut cornbread into squares (you can use croutons and skip the baking if you don’t have cornbread).

Bake cornbread at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn a couple times to brown the sides.

While cornbread is baking, slice cucumber and layer sundried tomatoes on top. Chop basil and sprinkle on top of both.

Pour chili ranch dressing on (will post recipe if someone expresses interest)

Christina’s Breakfast Bruffins Recipe

Posted in Breakfast, Recipes, Vegetarianism on October 19, 2009 by Christina

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tspn salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • almost 1/4 cup flax seed (grind before putting into batter)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Combine all ingredients – dry ingredients first, wet ingredients second, then mix in blueberries.

Spoon batter into muffin pan. Aim for 2/3 full for each cup to make 12 muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees Celsius for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick can be inserted into the middle and come out clean.

These muffins are high in antioxidants from the blueberries and omega 3 due to the flaxseed and olive oil. So far, I’ve been told they are more of a healthy bread in muffin form and are not too sweet, which I personally think is good for breakfast. If you like sweeter muffins, I suggest adding more sugar.

Also, table salt seems to mix better than sea salt.
