An easy vegan couscous breakfast recipe for mornings on-the-go

 

This vegan couscous breakfast recipe is one way of making sure to have breakfast, even when you are on the-go. It’s so easy to make, utterly delicious and very filling.

 

You’ll be forgiven for thinking couscous is a bit bland – because it is bland, on its own. So the key to this quick and healthy couscous breakfast is flavouring up that couscous, which is what takes it from bland and un-interesting to “wow- that is delicious!” Recipe not even required – Just steam, freeze and that’s it.

That’s really it, I am not kidding. It’s pretty versatile too. it goes in my ziplock bag as I make a mad dash for the train for my morning commute. And for the mornings that I actually make it on that train, it’s the first thing I pull out of my bag, right after I have  caught my breath!

The first bonus? this breakfast recipe is vegan. Another bonus? the kids love this too. (yes, this is one kid-friendly vegan couscous breakfast recipe!) so this couscous squares always makes a well-received guest appearance in the kid’s lunch box. The one thing I’ll say about these squares are that they are quite crisp and crumbly, so make sure you’ve got one hand underneath your lips to catch the falling crumbs – which I always save for last!. 

Enjoy!
