Why not turn your favourite antipasto platter into breakfast minus the wine and plus coffee:) Add or remove ingredients as you please, making your favourite platter!
It is always good to have a few healthy breakfast recipes up your sleeve to help you live a balanced life. You wake up on Sunday morning, take your time to make the rosti, take your time to enjoy the delicious breakfast you have created and you feel so good that you can’t wipe off the smile from your face 🙂
Lots of yummy stuff added to boring scrambled eggs – roasted tomatoes with bocconcini (or mozzarella)pieces on top, asparagus and shimeji mushrooms. Healthy way to start the day!
It takes a while to whip up the rosti but on a plus side you will have plenty leftovers for later.
You may think Russians are weird eating cheesecake for breakfast. I swear it is a breakfast dish because the main ingredient is cottage cheese. I loved eating zapekanka growing up as a kid. My Aussie partner gave the dish a big thumbs up, so it is approved by non Russian 🙂
If you have never heard of shakshouka eggs, this what google will tell you: ” Shakshouka is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chilli peppers, onion, often spiced with cumin.”
The most enjoyable part is scooping all the deliciousness with a piece of fresh bread. Don’t simmer down your sauce too much, let the eggs float!
If you get a nice sourdough loaf from the markets, the best way to use it is making avo with a twist on a grilled sourdough bread. The seasoning on avo that what takes it to the next level. It gets as good or even better than the brekkie at your local café.
Green Shakshouka aka a different take on Middle Eastern eggs , minus the sauce plus kale, hence predominantly green and yellow colours on the plate. If you feel like a healthy start to your weekend – off you go, get some kale, shiitake mushrooms (you can substitute with other type of mushrooms), yellow (or green) tomatoes and eggs. I love the sprinkle of spiced Persian feta on top.
I love this super simple toast for brekkie – the colours just pop on the plate. I have scattered pickled zucchini around the toast, only because I have just bought a jar . Get creative and use whatever you like to enhance the look of your toast on the plate 🙂 I have used rye bread for the recipe. Use whatever bread your buy for your household. Multiple the ingredients by the number of people you have to feed.
I love creating new recipes based on the contents of the fridge and kitchen cupboards. This morning I saw some leftover ricotta, pumpkin dip and eggs. Then I saw a can of sweet corn and BOOM all ingredients came together nicely in this satisfying brekkie dish. Don’t be afraid to chop and change the recipe depending on what you find in your fridge!
