Squash, kale & chorizo tortilla

Squash, kale and chorizo tortilla
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 15mins

Ingredients

  • 6 British Lion eggs, whisked up in a large bowl
  • 2 tbsps olive oil or coconut oil
  • 260g cooking chorizo, sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced into 1cm cubes
  • About ¼ of a butternut squash, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 100g kale, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Heat the oven to about 190C/170C fan. Find a rectangular baking tray or dish about 20cm square with sides at least 5cm deep. Put this dish in the oven to heat up whilst you get things cooking.
  2. Fry the butternut squash in a non-stick pan using half the oil until it’s almost cooked and golden brown – tip it into the bowl with the whisked eggs in. Leave the oil in the pan.
  3. Fry the chorizo sausage until cooked and add to the egg mix – add the oil too because it will now be flavoured by the chorizo. Tip in the tomato and kale.
  4. Remove the hot dish from the oven and tip in the remaining olive oil. Swill it around so that the whole dish is lightly oiled.
  5. Give the egg mix a final stir and tip everything into the hot dish. Place back in the oven and bake until the eggs are cooked – about 12-18 minutes.

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
