5 Layer Breakfast Stack

I love breakfast.  It is one of my favorite meals to eat out.  However, often I eat out for breakfast, and I am pretty useless the rest of the day.  I do not eat eggs often but when I do they have to be runny.  It's the best way to enjoy them!  This breakfast stack is hearty but healthy.  It'll leave you very full but able to enjoy your day.  I love all the middle eastern spices and the tomatoes mixture is delicious.  

Black eye peas:

Black eye peas are high in protein.  They are great way to start the day because they will keep you full.  The are also high in fiber.  Although, they do not contain many vitamins they are rich in folate.  Folate promotes cellular growth and enhances the body's metabolism. 

5 Layer Breakfast Stack
 Serves 2

Spicy Tomato Sauce
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 white onion
2 small peppers, or 1 large one, diced into small pieces
1 garlic clove
2 large tomatoes, I used heirloom
1 Tbsp on Harrissa, this give alot of spice, if you can find any, add extra jalapeno, cumin and coriander
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 Tbsp cilantro chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup black eyed peas, or other pea of choice
1/8 tsp Chilli powder, or more if you like it spicy
Salt and Pepper to taste

1/2 avocado

4 eggs, cage-free and humane 


1. We cooked the black eyed peas with 3 cups of water in pressure cooker for 12 minutes.  Alternatively, you can cook them on the stove top for 35-40 minutes till soft.  Add salt, pepper, and chilli powder.

2.  For the spicy tomato sauce, heat the coconut oil in a sauce pan. Cut the onion in large pieces and cook until soft for 8-10 minutes.  Add peppers and cook for another 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minutes.  Dice 1 and 1/2 tomatoes and stir into mixtures.  Stir in harrissa. coriander, and cumin powder.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  

3. Cook eggs sunside up or you can poach them.  

4. Now to assemble stack.  With the remaining 1/2 tomato, cut into 4 large round pieces.  The tomato will be the bottom layer.  Next layer will be the black eyed peas, then lay the eggs on top of the peas.  Top the egg with the tomato sauce, followed by sliced avocado.  Garnish with chopped cilantro.
