Broccoli and Bacon is a quick recipe and a excitingly different breakfast. It takes us away from the traditional breakfast but delivers the nutritents and tastes that more than qualifies it as healthy breakfast. It is all vegetarian and low calorie, low fat and zero cholesterol! And delicious!
We start with broccoli slaw pre-cut which saves us time. It you cannot find it at your grocery store, you can pre-cut your own broccoli using the stalks.
The bacon is from the grain tempeh. Is a marinated organic soy product made by Turtle Island Foods. It simply requires browning. 2 strips provides 3.5 grams of protein. Most health food stores carry the Turtle Island alternative meat products.

A tsp. of water may be used instead of the tamari sauce.
