1. Eggs Florentine

Basically, this is eggs Benedict sans bacon or ham, and therefore vegetarian-friendly. This recipe for eggs Florentine with smoky Mornay sauce features a garlicky bed of spinach. And don’t worry about the Mornay sauce — it’s not difficult to make. Just add some milk if you think it’s too thick. 


2. Veggie quinoa breakfast bowl

3. Slow-cooked Tuscan kale with pancetta, breadcrumbs, and a poached egg

7. Huevos rancheros
