  • Summary

    This yellow split pea breakfast bowl is warm, savory, and nourishing. It packs a whopping 17 grams of plant-based protein per serving and is rich with dietary fiber and micronutrients. To make it, you'll simmer yellow split peas with a bit of garlic and some chopped scallions until tender and mushy. Then, top as you please and serve. I love topping mine with sliced avocado and juicy cherry tomatoes, but feel free to get creative. This breakfast bowl can be prepared ahead of time for a quick and nourishing grab-n-go weekday breakfast.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
    • 4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 3/4 cup yellow split peas, thoroughly rinsed
    • 3 cups filtered water or low-sodium vegetable broth
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
    • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 1 small ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
    • 1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
    • 3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
