Brown Paper Nutrition

Protein charged breakfast to keep your hunger at bay throughout the course of the morning. Swap edamame for any of your favourite legumes / beans that are pre-cooked or tinned, rinsed and drained. Good quality extra virgin olive oil is going to deliver you the healthy mono-unsaturated fats and antioxidants to support cardiovascular and brain function, not to mention contribute to healthy weight management.


Serves 1

1 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, finely sliced

2 leaves cavolo nero or kale, stems removed, leaves roughly torn

1/2 cup coked edamame beans or another legume of choice

1/4 avocado – optional but delicious!

1 tsp nutritional yeast – optional but added B12 bonus

1 slice sourdough bread, thick cut, toasted


Heat a frypan on medium heat, add extra virgin olive oil, garlic and kale and cook 2-3 minutes. Add edamame, salt pepper and nutritional yeast and toss, cooking another 1-2 minutes to heat the beans through. Spread avocado on toast, if using then top with the beans and cavolo nero mix. Tuck in!
