Sometimes in the morning, the perfect start might just be a good scramble, agreed?
I had some ginger and red chilli begging for mercy, and so I thought I would add it to my breaky for something a little extra aromatic, and it turned out great!
In place of mushrooms, you can use grated or sliced courgette, or maybe some leftover cooked potato that you just slice? If you have mushrooms though, I'd highly recommend using them!
The zingy ginger and slight spice from the chilli will be sure to wake you up ^ ^
Monday Morning Scramble
A good handful and a bit of mushrooms, sliced/chopped
1/2 green or red pepper, chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated or a pinch of dried ginger
A good pinch of turmeric
1/4 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
50ml milk of choice (I used soy)
Salt and pepper (a good pinch of each)
Toast to serve!
- In a pan, start sweating the mushrooms along with the red or green pepper. After a few minutes - once it's started to release its juices, add the turmeric and ginger and fry for a few more minutes.
- In the meantime, in a different bowl, whick together egg, milk, salt and pepper along with the chilli and add to the frying pan with the vegetables. Keep stirring the eggs frequently until it's still a little creamy and not too dry. Take it off the heat and serve with some nice toast!
Other things I have made this month are frikadeller, chunky delicious dhal, and spiced currant bulgur ( I added a handful of sunflower seeds to the latter for extra goodness, yum!).
When working a lot, it is especially important to make sure you take good care of yourself, and what better way to do that than with some tasty food? I hope you have a great start to your week! Any plans?
