Weird breakfast explanation:
The other night I soaked a pot of "soup bean mix" (mixed beans with barley). Yesterday I woke up, threw em in the crockpot & now I have several meals worth of beans & grain. I do this a few times a month with different beans & grains because I get CSA boxes, so having some ready made basics keep me going through the week without having to really plan or spend time I don't have on dinner. Beans & grains also freeze well, in case I have any leftover.
For dinner last night I wanted something hearty, so I made a quick chili with tomatos, peppers, garlic, onions & collards, topped it with polenta (coarse ground cornmeal cooked with water & salt for a few minutes until thick), sprinkled it with lots of nutritional yeast & baked it at 425 for 45 minutes. It's so delicious I ate it again for breakfast! Cold! Really!
