My work colleague brought these in to work one day and they were devoured so I had to have the recipe. It’s  a while ago since we had them so I can’t really remember if mine were similar. They didn’t rise as I expected them to but they still tasted yum. I probably put too many vegetables in it, so the mixture may have been too dense. These would be great for a kids lunch box, a great way to get them to eat vegetables as well. The original recipe is from: http://www.rte.ie/lifestyle/food/recipes/2012/0910/3273-oh-so-good-cheesy-veggie-savoury-muffins/

Makes 8

Ingredients

250g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

Pinch salt

2 eggs (small)

130 ml milk

4 tblsp olive oil

1 cup chopped veg (I used peppers, corn, tomatoes, shallots and courgette)

1 cup chopped greens (rocket/spinach)

1 cup grated cheddar

1 cup grated parmesan

Salt and pepper to season

Sprinkle of seeds of your choice (I use chia seeds)

Oil spray

Method

1. Heat a frying pan and spray with the oil spray. Saute the chopped veg (not greens) for 5 minutes and set aside.

2. Sieve flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl, make a hollow in the centre.

3. Mix milk, eggs and oil in a bowl and all to the hollow and mix gently.

4. Add all the veg, salt and pepper and cheese and mix.

5. Grease a muffin tin and fill the wells 2/3 the way up.

6. Sprinkle the seeds over each of the muffins. Bake for 15-20 minutes (check if cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre of one of the muffins and if the skewer comes out clean they are cooked, if not cook for another 5 minutes). They should be golden brown on top. Best eaten hot.

This is my go to hangover, I mean comfort food 😉  I love tomato based dishes; I think I was Spanish in a previous existence. You could have this as a vegetarian dish or I add chorizo if I have it in stock.

Serves 2

Ingredients

1/2 red pepper, diced

1/2 yellow pepper, diced

1 onion, diced

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 or 2 Jalapeno pepper, chopped finely

3 sprigs of coriander, chopped roughly

1 tin of tomatoes

Olive oil

1/2 avocado, diced

75g grated cheese (something that melts well, like mozzarella)

2 eggs

Salt and pepper to season

Method

1. Heat a frying pan that you can put in the oven or under a grill. Add a tablespoon of oil to the pan and heat.

2. Fry the onion for 4 minutes.

3. Add the peppers and fry until softened.

4. Ad the garlic and Jalapeno and fry for 2 minutes.

5. Add the tin of tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.

6. Simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has reduced.

6. Make 2 wells in the sauce and break the eggs into the wells.

7. Scatter over the avocado and grated cheese.

8. Place under the grill until the cheese has melted.

You’re done! Serve with tortillas or tortilla chips.

I was talking to my colleague about Acai Bowls and I somehow agreed to making them for breakfast for him and my lunch club girls. I had the Acai smoothie packets and I figured that I could wing making the rest myself. The brand of frozen acai smoothie that I have is unsweetened and has a kind of an earthy taste so if you like it sweet I would recommend adding a tablespoon of agave syrup or honey. The blender we have at work is pretty rubbish so I ended up mashing the berries with the smoothie mix. I added some almond milk, probably a little bit too much as it was a bit runny once it had melted so I have adjusted the recipe to cater for this. The bowls went down a treat. I may be called for duty again.

Serves 4

Ingredients

3 acai smoothie packs

4 tablespoons of chia seeds

120g granola clusters

1/2 pineapple, chopped

3 kiwi, chopped

1/2 punnet of fresh raspberries, chopped

1/2 punnet of fresh strawberries, chopped

200g frozen mixed berries

3 tablespoons of almond milk

Agave syrup or honey to sweeten if needed

Method

1.Break up the acia smoothie mix into piece and add to a blender. Blitz the smoothie mix, the frozen berries and the almond milk together until you get a smooth mixture that isn’t too runny.

2. Distribute the mix among four bowls. Layer the fruit in each of the bowls.

3. Sprinkle the chia seeds and the granola clusters over the fruit.

4. Drizzle some syrup or honey over the mix, serve and enjoy.

I woke up last weekend and had a craving for baked eggs. I didn’t have the ingredients in stock so I marched off to the supermarket and got them. By the time I had the eggs baked, I was well and truly starving so I made a bit of a brunch out of it and had the whole lot myself 😮

I made the recipe up as I went along.

I took on board the feedback from ‘binary option signals’ and have added a few photos of the process. I will aim to do that for any future posts 🙂

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 small capsicum, chopped

1 tin of tomatoes- I used one with garlic, chilli and herbs

1 onion, diced

1 clove of garlic, crushed

2 eggs

200g chorizo, sliced

Olive oil spray

1 tsp chilli flakes

1 tsp smoked paprika

75g feta cheese

Salt and pepper

2 thick slices of sour-dough bread or ciabatta

Butter for the bread

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

2. Heat a frying pan and spray with olive oil spray. Add the onion, capsicum and chorizo and sauté to golden brown. Add in the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.

5.  Crack the eggs and add on top of the sauce.

6. Crumble on the feta cheese on top of the sauce and eggs.

7. Cook in the oven until the eggs are cooked to your taste. I overcooked one of the eggs in this dish, I like it slightly runny so that it’s oozes into the sauce.

4. While the eggs are cooking toast the bread on a griddle pan. Slather on the butter.

5. Serve the eggs with the bread on the side for dunking into the tomato sauce and running egg, Yummy.
