Since we are all spending our time mostly home, I know that we have to cook almost daily, if we don’t order from our fave restaurants, but to be honest early in the morning it is better and faster to cook for yourself than wait for the delivery. This is why I thought of writing this article with my fave options for breakfast. It is my favourite meal of the day and this is why me and Adrian try and make it extra special and delicious. We almost always have avocado-egg-toast, but from time to time we like to change up things a little and these are our 8 fave types of breakfast dishes. I always have my breakfast with some coffee and milk and almost always with fresh juice on the side.
1. Number one is the avo-egg-toast. We usually get a black grain bread, fry it a bit in the pan, add the ready to eat avocado on top, put some sweet corn as well and on top the well fried egg, on both sides. You can obviously eat it sunny side up, or how you prefer it. We sometimes add some blue cheese on top, as well and when we have guests we like to fancy things up and change the toast with a croissant. Next ti it we some times eat on top of toast other spreadable creams we find at the supermarket.
2. Second on my faves’ list, although I haven’t made them for a while, are the American pancakes with ricotta, strawberries, maple syrup and pistachio. You can find the recipe for these American pancakes here and I’m telling you that this topping is so soooo delish.
3. For the warm summer mornings I love the acai bowl. I know that you normally have to make it with an acai mix, but I find that freezing my own fruit makes it the same or even more delicious. So I use frozen mix berries and a frozen ripe banana to make it. I mix the frozen fruits with some milk and blend them, then on top I add some fresh fruits, what I have at the moment in the fridge and some seeds if I have, chia and even coconut flakes. It is super yum and refreshing, this is why I prefer to eat it during spring or summer.
4. Since we are talking about bowls, lets talk also about the oatmeal bowl. Adrian loves this one and I also like it, but when we have a lot of yummy fruits that go along with it. For this one we use normal oat mix, the most basic one. We warm up the milk, you can use any milk, then add the oats and leave it steam for about 2 min, then when they get thick, pour them into the bowl and decorate with your fave fruit selection. If you like it to be crunchier, you can add some hard granola flakes on top, as well.
5. Another delicious bowl is the chia pudding one, you can leave for a couple of hours the chia seeds soaking in some yogurt, or of you don’t like chia you can also do the same with oats. You need to leave the oats in yogurt for a shorter period of time than the chias, then decorate again with your fave fruits and seeds.
6. A different type of eggs are the Shakshuka ones. I normally prepare these when we have gusts, cuz you cannot use just two eggs to make this recipe, or you can, but it will be better with 4 or 5. You have to first fry some onion in a pan, then add some small diced tomatoes and a bit of tomato sauce and some small diced pepper or other veggies that you like. When they start to shimmer, you start to add the eggs, you make a whole in the sauce then add the first egg and then the same thing until you add them all, depending on the size of your pan, you will be able to add 4 r 5 max. If you like them well make, you’ll have ti flip them, if not eave them like this until they are well coked enough for your taste. Add some fresh parsley on top and this is it. I like to eat them with a little salad on the side or with fresh babay spinach like in this pic.
7. The omelet, that everyone knows how to make. I like mine with dried tomatoes, cheese, fresh green onion, olives and avocado on top. How do you like yours?
8. And the last because I’ve made it only two times, but I love these type of Moroccan pancakes. I fell in love with the Moroccan breakfast since our first visit to Morocco and I am always super excited to go there especially for this breakfast. I have found this recipe on the web and copied it precisely. I like to serve mine with goat cheese and honey, like the Moroccans do and also with an almond and argan oil paste. Adrian loves them also with Nutella or the classic jam.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my selection and hope to give you some inspo for the next mornings. Bon appetit!
