Recipe of the Week - 29/11

This week, I had thoughts of publishing a dessert recipe, which involved a healthy and nutritious alternative to ice cream. However, after taking a look outside at the frozen windscreens and people decked out in hats and scarfs, I realised that it's probably not the most appropriate time to share it, so instead I've gone for a breakfast option..

As you've already heard me bark on about how important breakfast is (see an earlier post below), I will spare you from another lecture.. This recipe involves a staple food in my diet. Eggs. How do you like yours? I think my favourite has to be poached, with a little bit of sea salt and pepper.. My step sister keeps telling me that if I eat anymore eggs I'll turn into a chicken... anyway.. this recipe involves another method of cooking eggs which is even more simple than poached and that's scrambled. Scrambled eggs with a twist...

Again, this recipe is really easy to follow and it doesn't require much effort - perfect for the lazy chef!

Ingredients

1/2 tsp of Coconut Oil
3 Organic Eggs
Two handfuls of organic spinach
5 closed cup Mushrooms
Half a Red Onion
1 Leek
Pinch of Smoked Paprika (Optional)


Directions

Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan, whilst the pan is warming, chop up the mushrooms, onion and leek and add to the oil.

Brown for 3-4 mins. Once the onions have become tanslucent, add the spinach and continue frying for 2 minutes or until the spinach has wilted.

In a bowl, whisk up the eggs and then add to the vegetable mixture, turn down the heat.

Continually stir until the egg has reached your desired consistency whether thats soft verging on runny or firm and rubbery. Either way, this won't take long!

Season with Sea salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of smoked paprika to add that little extra kick of flavour.


This recipe takes approximately 10 mins. I'm not going to do a Jamie Oliver and call it a 15 minute meal when all of his take double that time.. but seriously this meal is a great way of packing in healthy and delicious veggies with a big protein food such as eggs that will keep your blood sugar levels steady, unlike conventional cereals which are packed loaded with sugar and additives leaving you unfulfilled and hungry an hour later. Alter the veg that you throw into the pan, be inventive! Push the boat out and boost the dishes' omega 3 levels by adding some smoked salmon. There you have it, scrambled eggs with a twist.

Have a great weekend!!
