Vegetarian Country Benedict

Biscuits and gravy are usually a heavy way to start the day, but not with this slimmed down recipe. We substitute some of the usual butter in the biscuits for pureed navy beans, which add protein and fiber, so they’ll keep you satiated long after breakfast. The beans have such a mild flavor, no one will guess the secret ingredient! For the gravy, we forgo fatty pork sausage and use meaty shiitake mushrooms instead. The recipe can be adapted easily for vegans by using plant-based butter and oat milk and skipping the scrambled eggs or replacing them with scrambled tofu instead.

You’ll sneak in a serving of vegetables and a healthy dose of fiber with this breakfast, setting you up for success for the rest of the day.
