Egg fried Broccoli Breakfast
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to have with eggs if you are trying to avoid bread. We have been brought up that eggs for breakfast must involve some buttered toast for the eggs to be put on top of or used to dip into the eggs. It is also the case that the only vegetables we tend to eat at breakfast are tomatoes and mushrooms.
This morning I decided to experiment with broccoli – a vegetable that is always in my fridge. This took me 10 mins to prepare and cook, enough time for the coffee machine to heat up and make a lovely cup of coffee to serve with it
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Tomato
- 1 head of broccoli
- butter or coconut oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Either roughly chop the broccoli then place in a food processor and blitz until it turns into very small pieces ( like rice) or finely chop the broccoli by hand until it is very fine.
- Put some butter or coconut oil in a frying pan and cook the broccoli for a couple of mins
- Chop a tomato and add that to the broccoli and cook for a further minute.
- Beat the eggs , adding salt and pepper to taste and add to the pan, stir continuously until the eggs are cooked to your liking – will be 1-2 mins
- Serve and enjoy
