A classic breakfast tweaked for the Fast Day regime!

Adding something fruity to a savoury dish is a great way to bring out the flavours in this lovely dish. Try serving with a good dollop of plain dairy-free yoghurt also.

Gluten-free option: replace with quinoa. For 4 people, use 1 cup of quinoa cooked in one and a half cups of liquid.
