Food Revolution Day 2017

The focus this year was on “No-Junk Breakfasts”. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet so often, this meal is neglected by parents and children, alike. As home-schoolers, we always eat breakfast but sometimes fall into the trap of boring cereals, day after day. This year, as a parent I am going to try to liven up our first meal of the day, whilst still making sure it is a healthy and nutritious meal. The recipes suggested by Jamie Oliver will surely help. (See link here: No-Junk Breakfast Recipes )

We decided to try making the “Silky Masala Eggs” recipe on Saturday. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 fresh red or green chilli (we left this out)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed of garlic
  • Fresh coriander
  • 6 small cocktail tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Half a teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 4 wholewheat or brown chappatis or roti
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • Half a teaspoon tumeric
  • 6 large free-range eggs

Method:

  1. On a chopping board, peel and finely slice the onion, de-seed and finely slice the chilli (if using), then peel and crush the garlic.
  2. Pick and roughly chop the coriander leaves, finely chopping the stalks.
  3. Halve, deseed and finely chop the tomatoes.
  4. Place the chapatis on a tray and into the oven to warm through.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat, add the onion, chilli, garlic and coriander stalks, then fry for 5 minutes, or until softened, stirring regularly.
  6. Add the spices, then cook for 1 minute, or until smelling fantastic.
  7. Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then beat with a fork.
  8. Scatter the chopped tomatoes into the pan, cook for a further 2 minutes, then pour in the eggs and reduce the heat to low.
  9. Stir slowly until you’ve got beautiful silky strips of just cooked egg, surrounded by softer, custardy egg, then remove from the heat – the residual heat of the pan will continue to cook the eggs.
  10. Stir the coriander leaves into the eggs, then serve with warm chapatis and a little extra chilli scattered over, if you like.

 Thoughts:  Did we enjoy? Yes, extremely yummy!
