Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas When You’re in A Rush

by Adeline Peng. |

Let’s face it, we’re always rushing to beat the morning traffic, whether to get to work or school on time, which often leads to a handful of us trading a healthy and wholesome breakfast for a packet of nasi lemak from the side of the road. I agree, it can be extremely sinful and delicious, but there’s no way of getting around the morning slump that hits you right after eating.

These recipes are a game-changer because not only are they quick, but they’re simple enough that even the most amateur of kitchen cooks, or those who roll out of bed at the very last minute, can adopt into their morning routines.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

What you’ll need:

1 egg

A handful of mushrooms; sliced

2 cups of water

1 tablespoon of miso paste

1 cup of rolled oats

For garnishing: chopped spring onions

Soft-boiled egg: Bring a pot of water to boil, then turn off the heat. Place the egg into the pot to cook for roughly 4-5 minutes then spoon the eggs into an ice bath immediately after.

Miso Porridge: Bring two cups of water to boil. Once the water has boiled, lower the heat to a medium-low and add in the miso paste, then stir to dissolve. Once dissolved, add the rolled oats into the broth and stir continuously until the mixture has thickened. Add in the sliced mushrooms and stir occasionally until it is fully cooked.

Spoon the porridge into a bowl, top with the soft-boiled egg, garnish with the chopped spring onions and serve.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

What you’ll need:

1 large or 2 small banana(s), the riper the better

½ cup of oats

¼ teaspoon of baking powder

1 egg

½ cup of almond milk

½ teaspoon vanilla essence

A pinch of salt

1 tablespoon of olive oil

For garnishing: sliced bananas

Add the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a pan and let it sit on medium-high heat for a couple of minutes, then reduce the heat to a medium-low. Use a ladle to spoon the batter onto the pan in approximately 3-inch circles, then cover with a lid for 2 minutes or so. Flip the pancakes (do check to see if their bottoms have browned, if not give it another minute) and cook for another 2 minutes without the lid. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Stack the pancakes onto a plate, drizzle with some honey or maple syrup and top it off with some sliced bananas.
