Fresh Mediterranean Breakfast

What is a panzanella? If you’re unfamiliar with this Tuscan recipe, I’ll give a brief overview. It is a fresh chopped salad dish made with fresh tomatoes, onions and stale soaked bread.

This recipe is inspired by the classic dish, but elevated for breakfast time.

I combine fresh spinach with tomatoes, red onions with minced garlic and olive oil. And whole wheat bread toasted in olive oil.

Then topped with a fried egg and drizzled with a bit of balsamic vinegar.

It’s simple and super delicious…which allows for the flavors of the veggies to shine!
