Green breakfast bowl recipe

Start the day out right with the goodness of eggs, greens and halloumi.

Serves: 2

Ingredients

2 eggs

2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

20 g (¼ cup) raw almonds, roughly chopped

20 g (¼ cup) pumpkin seeds

20 g (¼ cup) sunflower seeds

100 g (1 cup) cooked quinoa

¼ teaspoon sea salt

150 g kale, stalks removed and leaves torn into bite-sized pieces

50 g (1 cup) baby spinach leaves

125 g (2 ½ cups) halloumi

50 g (1 cup) freshly grated coconut flesh

2 lemon wedges

1 avocado, halved, peeled, stoned and sliced

Method

1. Put the eggs in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil and boil for 3 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon, place the eggs under cold running water until cool enough to handle. Very carefully peel off the shells and set aside.

2. Heat one tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, constantly stirring, until the garlic is fragrant and lightly browned. Add the almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds and toast until lightly browned. Add the cooked quinoa and the sea salt. Now add the kale and spinach leaves and mix to incorporate. Once the kale and spinach have slightly wilted remove from the heat.

3. Spoon the mixture into serving bowls then, using the same frying pan, crumble the halloumi into the pan and gently cook until golden on all sides. This will only take a few minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

4. Add the halloumi to each serving bowl. Place the eggs into the frying pan and turn until a little colour is added to each egg. Add an egg to each bowl, followed by the grated coconut flesh, lemon wedges and avocado slices. Serve immediately while still warm.
