Seeds, peanuts, mulberry & figues
I love porridge during week days. They are quick and easy to do, but I prepare my porridge mixes in advance.
See, I hate the plain porridge. I find I find them… well plain! So, once a month I prepare a mix that looks like muesli which I use to make my morning porridge.
To make my mix I use oatflakes from Lidl, Seeds, dried fruits and nuts from any supermarket that offers the best deal at the time.
Ingredients for my monthly mix
This month I am putting the following in my mix: Oatflakes – chopped sunflower seeds – sliced figs – chopped dried mulberries.
Mix (dry) it all well and put in a container. The mix will keep for long time if you do not use it regularly.
To make the morning serve, all I need is 4 table spoons of the above mix, in a bowl, add a small glass of milk. I use whole milk.
Place the bowl in it the microwave for 4 minutes and add 2 chopped kiwis or any other fresh fruits. I simply add sugar when I run out of fruits.
Breakfast is ready!
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it… Plus it is good for the heart.
The Nutter J
We are Saturday today and I was working away in Newcastle (North East UK) this week. I woke up with next to nothing to eat in the house. All I had was a croissant that I failed to eat from my breakfast yesterday… it was such a busy day what can I say? I proceeded this morning to make said croissant interesting.
So, I found in the house the following ingredients:
-A small carrot; thinly sliced
-Half a red onion; thinly sliced
-2 cloves of garlic; thinly chopped
-A brazil nut; to grate
-Pure olive oil.
*I stated by butterflying my not so fresh croissant and warming it in the oven until slightly crunchy.
*In a really hot frying pan with a bit of olive oil, fry the onion with thyme, then add in chopped garlic and carrot. Add in a pinch of salt then stir until the carrot is cooked to your liking.
*Place the crunchy/warm croissant in a serving dish; pour the content on your frying pan on the croissant. Then grate the raw Brazil nut on top of all that.
I didn’t have milk so, fresh grounded black coffee was my hot drink to accompany all that. Voila!
This is my idea of a random fry-up. Hope you’ll try it.
