Breakfast Broth Bowl [Recipe Redux]

by Sarah on February 21, 2016

Broth for breakfast?

I’m told they do it in Asia.IMG_5053 (1280x853)

Of course, those noodle bowls (so I’ve heard) are more of the traditional, savory, soy or miso-based concoctions we are more accustomed to in the States…but eaten for lunch or dinner.IMG_20150916_161345

However, my obsession with Kimchi Ramenand eating THAT for breakfast a few times–made me wonder if I couldn’t ‘noodle’ around a bit with the conceptIMG_20150721_113145

…and make a sweeter broth instead.

The basic trick for broth is boiling/simmering a bunch of flavor infusers for 30 minutes or so, straining, and then serving with noodles and accoutrements.IMG_5000 (1280x853)

Of course, I wouldn’t say no to using leftover rice, or any other grain, if you’ve got it.IMG_5020 (1280x853)

And you can pretty much try any fruit in the broth you like.

I’ve gone with oranges/clementines, apples, bananas, and canned peaches so far.IMG_5005 (1280x853)

No shame in adding vegetables…roasted butternut squash rings? steamed spinach?

Or egg whites and sriracha. (Trust me.)

I mean, we put crazy stuff into smoothies, why not here?IMG_5169 (1280x853)

I would defintiely NOT skip the addition of a scoop of tahini. Don’t know why, but it MAKES it.IMG_5035 (1280x853)

This concept may be strange.

You may think I’m crazy.

But, I’ll tell you what: it is certainly NOT boring.reciperedux_breakfast

Breakfast Broth Bowls

(Makes about 2 1/2 cups broth, enough for 2-3 bowls)

  • 2 cups assorted sliced/chopped fruit, such as apples, oranges, canned peaches, bananas
  • 1-2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • cooked noodles or rice, for serving
  • fruit or vegetables, for serving
  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and continue to cook for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool on the stove (so flavors continue to infuse).
  4. Strain broth into a separate container.

To serve: Scoop noodles into the center of a bowl. Pour broth around until almost covered. Top with fruit, vegetables, and a scoop of tahini.IMG_5009 (1280x853)
