I know, I know. This one looks amazing!
Not gonna lie, you'll need a little bit of extra time and special ingredients to make this breaky.
That said, I don't mean hours. I just mean it's probably one for your days off, not in the mad school rush before work. Realistically you probably only need about 15 minutes to pull this together and that's for two serves.
When you do make this superfood egg breakfast, you can kick back and indulge. Gloating in the glory of how much good you're doing for your body.
Here are some of the health qualities of the nutrient compounds in this breakfast:
good for brain and nervous system health
healthy cholesterol support
low GI, good for blood sugar management
And of course, YUM!
It's not just one ingredient over another. It's the combination of all the elements from the broccoli to the eggs to the seeds and although tiny amounts, the spices add a great deal of heal!
Make this deliciously healthy breakfast for yourself this weekend!
Superfood Egg Breakfast
WHAT YOU NEED
1 small head of broccoli (1/2 if the broccoli is large), made into 'broccoli rice' see below
2 TBSP coconut oil
1 garlic clove, minced
¼ onion, chopped
2 TBSP pumpkin seeds
1 TBSP dried cranberries
½ tsp. ground turmeric
½ tsp. chili flakes
½ tsp. paprika
½ tsp. oregano
WHAT TO DO
Divide the broccoli into smaller parts and chop into tiny pieces or use a food processor to make the broccoli rice.
Heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a pan on medium-high heat, add the minced garlic, chopped onion, pumpkin seeds and fry, stirring for about 3 minutes, until browned.
Next, add the cranberries, broccoli rice and all the spices. Season with salt & pepper, mix and fry for another 5-7 minutes. If needed, add a little water to avoid burning. At the end of cooking, drizzle with lemon juice.
In a separate frying pan, heat the remaining 1 tbsp. of oil, and fry the eggs. Once ready serve on top of the broccoli rice, season with salt & pepper.
