Do you often feel hungry within an hour of eating your last meal? This usually happens to me if I haven’t had a well- balanced nutritious plate of food including complex carbs, a source of protein, lots of veggies and some healthy fats. There seems to be a trend of lots of people experimenting with a vegetarian diet this year and I think that’s amazing for our planet and our health but it is important to still take care of the protein part of our plates but this doesn’t have to come from meat.
Savoury porridge I hear you ask, trust me don’t knock it until you have tried it. I am a big fan of eggs and greens for breakfast but when the weather is colder and the mornings are icey sometimes there is nothing that beats a bowl of warming porridge. So why not combine the two? Breakfasting just got interesting.
How to make the perfect savoury porridge
Whilst weekday breakfast needs to be quick and easy, at the weekend when there is a bit of extra time, take the time to make breakfast that little more special. This comforting and filling hash is a real crowd pleaser and perfect for making when you have guests for breakfast/brunch.
The runny yolks from the eggs provide the perfect sauce for these crispy potatoes and adding the mushrooms and kale is a great way to get a head start on your 5-a-day.
Quiche is on one of my favourite types of French cuisine, not just because it looks amazing and tastes great, but because also because it’s so versatile.
Whether you’re trying to use up the last of something from the fridge, or experimenting with a new combination of flavours for the first time, a quiche can be your best friend.
This version of the much-loved quiche has a festive twist, achieved with the use of buttery sprouts, Wensleydale cheese and a few dried cranberries to cut through the creaminess with little bursts of sweetness.
As a firm breakfast and brunch favourite, scrambled egg sometimes needs a little bit of jazzing up to keep our taste buds interested. As I was growing up my Dad would always make it with a little bit of milk and butter, and even though that tastes great, I now want scrambled egg to be more of a meal rather than just a quick fix at breakfast time, so these are my favourite ways to vary things and to keep my tummy happy.
