In April, our International Breakfast for Lunch program explored a more savory side of breakfast by featuring flavors from Japan. A traditional Japanese breakfast is very similar to a traditional lunch or dinner. It may consist of rice, miso broth, vegetables, fish, or a rolled egg omelette (called tamagoyaki). Although this morning meal style may seem a bit too heavy to Americans, it is meant to be light yet filling.
Pictured below is our take on a traditional Japanese breakfast: marinated salmon, veggies, and a ginger miso broth atop a bed of brown rice. Students enjoyed the rare appearance of Salmon and miso in the dining hall and got to experience a new dish from another culture. We encourage everyone who dines with us to try our International spreads, and to go to our school dining site to learn more about our programs.
