I don’t usually post on a Saturday but today I’ve got something a little special for you: an exciting announcement and an easy recipe for how to make cafe worthy avocado toast at home. The recipe is mostly about how to plate this simple breakfast to make it look like it’s worth at least $18, because apparently that’s what we spend on brunch in Melbourne and why so many of us can’t afford to adult. Apparently.
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and for many of you that might mean brunch. My own mum has vetoed the idea and opted for dinner but I might see if my sister wants brunch because I feel like it’s just a good option for any Sunday. Who’s with me? This dish translates to broken eggs and it can be eaten any time of the day you like, the first time I ate it was for dinner;) However if your mum is all about the savoury breakfast his will be a winner and it’s a breeze to make!
I’m back from holidays and not loving reality. Such a positive start to a blog post right? I feel like I could have extended my holiday for twice the length at least if money hadn’t have been an issue. If money wan’t an issue so much of life would be different wouldn’t it? But I had the most amazing time, and have so many experiences to share with you all…soon. For now let’s start with a recipe that was influenced by Morocco, where couscous is king.
This week I have some ridiculously yummy things in store for you. From pasta bake, to noodles, to grilled chicken salads there’s even a burger. It’s meal planning Sunday time and I’ve tried to take the difficult part out of it for you.
WAFFLES! I haven’t posted a waffle recipe since last year so thought it was probably about time. These are light and fluffy with a crisp exterior and they’re gluten free and dairy free. You could make them vegan by following the suggestions just before the recipe. And just in time for Easter brunch!
This is a green smoothie that packs a punch in the antioxidant and good for you departments. There’s matcha for those antioxidants, a good dose of omega 3’s, potassium, vitamins A, C and K to name a few, fibre, protein it’s like a powerhouse. I love serving it in a bowl over some muesli for hidden crunch and topped with fruit for contrasting flavours. And because it looks pretty tbh.
A super simple make ahead breakfast that will put a smile on your face in the morning. I love peanut butter in both sweet and savoury dishes, and this slightly sweet dessert is given a nutty protein kick with a good dollop of roasted peanut butter.
My current obsession. It’s the perfect breakfast in a hurry (or post work out snack) and you don’t have to make it look all pretty. Just pour it into a portable cup or bottle and run out the door. It’s the quickest way to get your morning coffee and breakfast in one go.
I love okonomiyaki so much. It’s one of my favourite mid week dinners. This is a reworking of that famous meal into fritter form so it seems a little more breakfast like! You have to make these this weekend! I should probably chill out on the exclamation marks…
It’s Christmas this week! And this means that every meal I eat will be Christmas themed!!! Totally joking! But I will be eating this nice cream frequently both with and without that topping because it’s DELICIOUS. And super easy.
