Served with toasted bread on the side, these simple dishes make a traditional Mediterranean breakfast that will send you out the door ready for an epic day.
Eggs, hard-boiled or in an omelet made with cheese and/or herbs and seasoned with salt and a touch of chili;
Sliced tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil;
Fresh vegetables, dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper;
Labneh (strained yogurt “cheese”; you can also serve Greek yogurt).
Craving something sweet with the savory? Stir a little of our granulated honey into your labneh or Greek yogurt, and you won’t have to deal with a sticky spoon and jar.
Other variations: In winter, serve the eggs with tomato sauce; in spring, add fresh baby greens to the vegetables; in summer, use heirloom tomatoes with fresh basil; in autumn, try making your own labneh by straining yogurt through cheesecloth (WikiHow has a recipe with photos).
