Roasted Leek, Passionfruit Porridge & Coffee Breakfast

Probably the most delicious balance between breakfast and lunch. Today I’m trying to combine these two. So, for those of you who like to sleep in late and skip breakfast, it might be worth reading a little more. Sure, brunch is nothing new, yet this recipe will find some fans of the latter. In our family, porridge is a meal we like to make on the go. Especially on busy mornings with little time, it’s a delicious and nutritious choice for breakfast more than once a week.

Breakfast without Efforts

How many of you out there like to be woken up with “breakfast is ready”? For me personally, that would be the ideal, but unfortunately not always realistic. So, for those of you who like to have a really good breakfast or brunch with only little cooking, today’s recipe might be an inspiration. Especially in the late morning hours after a long night out, when you just want to eat with the least effort and without standing in the kitchen for hours.

Coffee for Breakast…and everything is good

A good breakfast or brunch always starts with a savory element and ends with the sweet part. A cup of coffee and all is good…so the idea was to bring these breakfast ingredients together. From this perspective leek is more than just a vegetable. It combines well roasted, savory flavors, but leek also develops a certain sweetness when cooked. On that point, it builds a bridge to the slightly sweet but also savory Passionfruit Porridge. To interpret the first meal of the day with a selection of recipes that might be a little cliché, coffee beans were used for an aromatic pesto and sourdough bread chips, for a little texture.

So, get to the stove you grumpy cats!

The night was too rough, and you need something to get back on your feet? Check out my Hangover Breakfast and everything will be fine.
