Vegan Breakfast Potatoes

I knew yesterday was going to be a long day. I was still tired from the night before and we were heading to Aspen for the X-Games. I figured we should start the day off with a good meal. As little energy as I had I got up and made this delicious and completely vegan breakfast. This is something you can get when you are eating out as well. Just make sure they don't use butter and don't add egg or cheese. ( I was able to add cheese because I was home) but i guarantee it will be just as delicious with out it. This is still one of my favorite things to get when I go out to breakfast. It was extremely filing and filled with flavor.

      Vegan Breakfast Potatoes

4 red potatoes
1/2 white onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 red pepper
2 mushrooms
2 pieces fresh broccoli
spinach (optional)
2 green green onions (optional)
olive oil
daiya cheddar cheese
garlic salt

1. Slice potatoes into medium sized squares. Place in a bowl and put in microwave for about a minute. (This helps to soften them up before cooking them)
2. In a large skilled add potatoes and coat evenly with olive oil. Add a little garlic salt to taste. 
3. Turn on medium-to high heat and let cook for about 8 minutes. Once one side is crispy turn over and cook for another 8 minutes. If potatoes are still not cooked all the way through lower the heat and continue cooking.
4. Slice all the vegetables. In a medium skillet add all vegetables except mushrooms, green onion and spinach with a little olive oil. Cook on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and spinach. Cook until all vegetables are soft.
5. Once everything is done mix potatoes and vegetables together.
6. Place on  a plate and add daiya cheddar cheese and sliced green onions. If you want it melted a little more place in microwave for about a minute.

I forgot to add spinach yesterday so it wont be pictured but it will defiantly add some flavor. If you really like tomatoes they would be good to add as well. Make sure you let this cool for a bit before you serve it.
