Crouton Carton


Un trés Bon matin!

We all worry almost daily over what new breakfast ideas we can churn out of our drowsy-in-the-morning or rushing-for-work kitchen. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it has to be the right balance between healthy and energetic and tasty enough to not get your mood and taste buds marred early in the morning, making you crave binge food for the rest of the day.
So here’s a tasty and healthy new recipe to jump-start your day. Easy to cook and not much time consuming.

* This breakfast spinoff goes amazingly well with a healthy vegan dip such as flavored cream or fruity yougurt sauce.

Have a lovely day after gorging on  this healthy and yummy breakfast.

Bon appétit!
