There is nothing I love more than going out for breakfast on the weekend, but I just can’t help get the feeling I am being cheated not only in taste, but also at the expense of my bank balance! So last Sunday we did something a little crazy. We ate at home. Extreme I know, but I was pretty happy with the results and will defiantly be cooking up a storm at least one day over the weekends. I posted this pic to Instagram (find me at Fitnessinthecity_) and I have had a few people ask for the recipe – so here you go!
Rolled eggs with chilli greens.
2-4 free range eggs (depending on how hungry you are or if you are sharing)
1-2 cups of washed greens. (I like Bokchoy, Silverbeet, Purple cabbage, Kale or whatever is in season/in the fridge.)
Handful of basil
2 organic free range bacon strips (optional of course)
Handful of cherry tomatoes
2 slices of Lemon
Coconut oil, garlic, chilli paste, Himalayan rock salt, pepper to garnish
Za’arar mix: Sumac, sesame, thyme, parsley, oregano, Himalayan salt
You can make your own or buy pre made. Another option is to just roll the eggs in sesame seeds or finely chopped herbs like parsley or basil – very tasty!
Boil room temperature eggs (I boil the water on a low to medium heat with eggs already in it, and then set the timer to 4 minutes once the water begins to boil).
In a fry pan on a medium heat cook your bacon to your liking.
In another pan, add some coconut oil, garlic and chilli paste to sauté your greens and basil in – don’t overcook as you don’t want to lose the nutrients of the greens. This should only take approx. 3 minutes, then set aside.
Your eggs should be off the stove now and resting in cold water (so they stop cooking) ready for you to gently peel (or have someone peeling for you – even better!)
Once peeled roll them in your desired spices – I rotate between chopped herbs, sesame seed or Za’arar mix (I got this idea from Dane: The Healthy Tradie)
Cut the Avocado in half (scoop out with a spoon), squeeze lemon over it and dress with Himalayan Rock salt and pepper.
Plate everything up, sprinkle the remaining basil on top – add a great chia tea and you’re ready to feast!
