Weekend Brunch

Weekend Brunch

Morning Cake Snobbers! It's official... the holidays are OVER! :( Don't cry just yet though, I have the perfect thing to lift your spirits... a spot of brunch! I definitely overindulged this weekend (diet starts today right?!) by cooking and baking some yummy dishes that will definitely be repeated.

First up: kick off your day with this Shakshuka-style dish of eggs, perfect for picky eaters (like myself!)

My take on Shakshuka
My take on Shakshuka

I'm not a fan of all the veggies etc that go into these dishes usually, so I made my own version! (Feeds 2 very hungry people!)

Ingredients:

  • Garlic (2 cloves)
  • Mushrooms (optional)
  • Carton of Passta (I like the garlic+herb one)
  • Fresh or dried parsely
  • Mixed herbs
  • Paprika
  • Sriracha or other hot sauce (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • Handful or your favourite grated cheese
  • Salt
  • Honey

Method

  • First, drizzle a generous amount of olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan
  • When hot, crush garlic and fry til brown
  • Add mushrooms and fry over
  • Add in passata, herbs, paprika, a drop or two of hot sauce, and parsley
  • Add a good squeeze of honey, a dash of salt, and mix!
  • Simmer for 10/15 mins until mixture has slightly reduced
  • Crack in your eggs and add another sprinkling of parsley
  • When your eggs are nearly done, sprinkle your cheese over and let it melt!
  • Serve immediately in the pan, with some fresh bagels or pita bread

Brunch for 2 hungry people... DONE! (And it's even kinda healthy too!)

Next time i'd add in some spinach for added iron!
