A Balinese breakfast is almost always fresh, healthy, and full of flavor. Today’s Balinese recipe has become one of my favorite breakfasts, and I’m hopeful that it will become one of yours, too.
Sometimes the simplest food tastes the best. My mom moved to Maui when I was in college and I would spend my holidays visiting her. Breakfast was a papaya picked off the tree in her backyard squeezed with a bit of lime juice. Perfection! Years later, Spencer and I went to Ubud, Bali, and stayed in a little hut.
Breakfast would magically appear on the doorstep each morning. It was a plate of sliced papaya, pineapple and banana, sprinkled with fresh coconut and a lime wedge. I think that might be the perfect breakfast, especially in the summer when I don’t want anything too heavy.
Some days, I need a bit more protein to rev my motor, so I add a cup of Fage (plain Greek yogurt) drizzle it with honey, and top it with chopped, toasted almonds.
So here is that perfect, simple Balinese breakfast recipe!
