I eat this when I’m dying to have a hot breakfast.  I usually feel peppier if I start my day with fruit or a smoothie, but sometimes I just need something hearty.

Feel free to add any other veggies you’d like--just make sure that you've cooked them beforehand if you don’t want them to be raw.  

For a truly decadent breakfast, I add some crumbled tofu and extra salsa and stuff into a whole grain tortilla.
