Many mornings I rush around trying to get the kids off to school and also cook a healthy breakfast. I find myself simultaneously signing school papers, emptying the dishwasher, getting a load of laundry started, making sure the kids’ backpacks are ready, braiding hair. . . do you get where I’m going? One of my favorite savory breakfasts, huevos rancheros, has a bit of a kick to it and is a nice change from my usual scrambled eggs. I make use of some staples I always have on hand to create a quick and nourishing meal.
Black bean puree (made ahead of time and stored in the fridge) gets topped with two fried eggs, a dollop of sour cream, a spoonful of salsa, and if I’m going to get really fancy, I add some avocado and cilantro. Huevos rancheros – without the grain.
