Last Call for Vegetables

Frost may hit this weekend, so the fresh vegetables will be disappearing. Time to use them for a Fast Day breakfast and dinner. The breakfast also uses some of those crepes that we stored in the freezer last week. This all fits into our Fasting Lifestyle — lots of fresh veg, good flavors, high protein, ease of preparation.

Breton Breakfast:        310 calories                  PB                                                                                  Here is one way to use the crepe batter which we made last week and you stored in the freezer. You need one crepe per serving. Make some extra for a lunch or dinner later this week.Breton bfast w: apple

Put the 3 vegetables and the curry in a small sauce pan with a bit of water and cook uncovered until the veg are soft and the liquid has evaporated. If your crepe was cooked previously, warm it a little to take off the chill. Cook the egg by frying it in a lightly-oiled non-stick pan. Spoon the vegetable on the crepe, put the egg on top. Hold briefly, if needed, in a warm oven while you pour the smoothie and warm beverage, and while you slice the fruit.
