1. Savory Gluten & Dairy Free Avocado Toast With Sardines
This is one of my favorite sugar free breakfast recipe that is really quick to make. It’s a breakfast for those days when you have salty cravings and you need a filling first meal.
The rich fatty flavor and texture of this avocado toast helps cut down on the fishy notes of the sardine, turning this simple gluten free dairy free breakfast into something very delicious and filling!
For this I used a homemade gluten free bun (sourdough) that I previously made. I keep them in the freezer. In the morning, I just throw a few buns in the toaster, slice or mush some avocado, and top them with wild sardines (lightly smoked and with olive oil).
2. Cabbage And Rice Breakfast Skillet Casserole
I know people who are constantly on the hunt of new sugar free breakfast ideas rather than sweet.
This meatless skillet casserole is made with cabbage instead of traditional potatoes. It has a lot of fibre, healthy fats, less carbs and makes a delicious savory breakfast idea if you are sensitive to nightshades.
The great part about making this breakfast casserole is that everything can be done in one pan. Just start cooking everything on the stove top, and then finish it off as a baked casserole.
Cooking it in an ovenproof non-stick skillet, saves on clean up by allowing transition from stove-top to oven in one pan. This skillet casserole is also a great make ahead sugar free breakfast, you can store slices in airtight containers for future meals.
3. Gluten Free Dairy Free Egg Free Breakfast Burrito
You can easily prep elements of this savory breakfast idea ahead of time making it a cinch to pull together for an easy weekday breakfast or lunch!
Instead of a regular bean and potato burrito I incorporated some healthy complex carbs, a probiotic rich ingredient (sauerkraut), nutrient rich sprouts and a delicious avocado sauce that provides moisture and enhances all those flavors. For an extra kick I added a drizzle of this sugar free ketchup.
Everything is wrapped up in a healthy gluten free (vegan) tortilla made with flax seeds and sourdough starter.
4. Gluten Free Dairy Free Tortilla Roll Ups With Salmon
This makes a healthy gluten and dairy free savory breakfast on the go or you can cut the roll ups into pinwheels and serve them as appetizers. Once you have the avocado sauce and the homemade gluten free tortilla ready it only takes a few minutes to assemble. You just need some greens and some wild caught smoked salmon.
Make Any Savory Breakfast With Gluten Free Potato Tortillas
Having a tortilla based breakfast is not a problem anymore. These soft gluten free and egg free potato tortillas are flexible enough to be used for wraps and burritos. You can wrap a chicken salad in them, a chickpea salad or some dinner leftovers and you’re good to go.
