BREAKFAST (super!!!) BOWL
Pssst.Would you like to know a secret?The most precious secret of them all…..?
It’s not going to be a tutorial about how to get rich,nor how to become a batman(or any other superhero!).There is something far much more important!The secret for having an amazing day.Everyday.The recipe is simple-delicious and wholesome breaky!All you need to beautify your day is to get up 15 minutes earlier(these 15 minutes extra in bed doesn’t make a difference anyway!),mix all the nutritious and super tasty ingredients in your favourite bowl.Voila!I told you it was simple 🙂
It works for me every time…The days when I have too much on my head,run around like a mad woman and skip breakfast,they are not good days at all.The days when I can’t be bothered and just scoff something or anything,I just feel okayish.But those days when I really pay attention to what I have for my breakfast and make a little feast,ohhh yes,they are the days I feel I can take over the world.
Breakfast bowl is like the best idea ever.You can throw as many things as possible(the more the better) into your favourite dish,just enjoy that moment and a GREAT DAY guaranteed 🙂
25o ml hot water
125g sheep halloumi cheese,sliced
1 small red onion,sliced
1 small avocado,sliced
handful of spinach
pine nuts to sprinkle with
salt and pepper
For YOGHURT DRESSING:
4 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
handful of chives,chopped
salt and pepper
1.Cover quinoa with 2 cups (500ml) boiling water,add salt ans simmer for around 12-15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.Put aside.
2.Bring around 1/4 water in a medium pan to boil – it’s for the eggs.
3.In the meantime,heat the oven to 374F/190C.Cut halloumi into thick slices 1/2 inch( 5mm) and put on the rack placed over a baking tray and bake for 3-5 minutes on the top shelf(closer to the heater). When the cheese golden on the top,flip it over and bake on the other side for another 3-5 minutes.Remove from the oven and let it cool down a little(I like mine a bit warm in salad).Cut into smaller pieces.
4.Prepare the dressing,mix the yoghurt with chives and season with salt and pepper.
5.Poach the eggs.(Look at the TIP).Divide all the ingredients between two dishes,top with the egg and the dressing and have an AMAZING DAY!
I always use traditional method for poaching eggs.1 egg at a time.
1.I bring around 1/4 water in a medium pan to boil,turn the heat down to simmer.
2.Then I crack eggs individually into a ramekin or cup.
3.I create a whirlpool in the water to help the egg white wrap around the yolk.
4.I then slowly tip the egg into the water.
5.It’s ready within 2-3 minutes.
