Every morning at about 9:30, one can detect the aromas of a homemade breakfast being prepared in the kitchen adjacent to the yoga studio. Upon entering the kitchen, guests marvel at the wonderful scents that permeate the room. Typical dishes include an egg scramble prepared with minced garlic, jalapeño, onions, mushrooms and finely cut greens. Another dish that usually is on the table is amaranth porridge, an ancient grain from Peru that is very high in protein and the B vitamins.
The scramble can be made vegan or ovo-vegetarian. It is quite easy to prepare. Simply take a handful of minced garlic and jalapeño and sauté it in a fry pan in a little olive oil. Add your choice of vegetables. I add such things as chopped mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, onions and any greens that you may have in the refrigerator. Bok choy leaves, swiss chard leaves, collards or kale can be shredded finely and added to the pan. After the vegetables appear cooked, add beaten eggs or mashed tofu with a little turmeric for color, sea salt and pepper to taste. Voilá!
