Food and Flying

Just a super quick post tonight folks. I’ve been absolutely shattered every evening as I’m currently interning at Waitrose Kitchen Magazine << DREAM JOB ALERT >> and 9-5 life is just not something my body is used to (lol)…

Anyhow, this is a classic dish of Tunisian origin – perfect for a low carb breakfast, brunch or lunch! Now that my half marathon training is finally over (!!!!) – finished it in under 2 hours, in case anyone was wondering – I’ve been trying to carb cycle in an attempt to help regain some muscle on my heavy weight training days. So this inevitably means on days off and cardio days I either have no carbs or low carbs. As per, I struggle for inspiration for no carb breakfasts…

Last sunday I was nursing a hangover, unable to visit the gym, and in need of a cleanse after the previous night’s debauchery – so I decided it was definitely a no carb day. Promising to cook my mum brunch, the pair of us rustled up this one pan no mess yumminess!

Ingredients (1 serving)

1/2 cup tomato sauce (see here for a my tomato sauce recipe)

2 eggs

1/4 courgette sliced

1 small handful baby tomatoes halved

1/4 bell pepper chopped

2 tsp chilli flakes

1 tsp each paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper

S + P

Chopped parsley for garnish

Method

  1. In a frying pan with some olive oil, sauté the peppers and courgettes with all the spices for several minutes or until the courgettes begin to cook.
  2. Add the tomato sauce and the tomatoes and stir over a medium heat for several more minutes. Taste and add seasoning if necessary.
  3. Preheat your grill.
  4. Make two little wells in the tomato sauce mix and crack the eggs into the holes. Cook for around 3 minutes, until the bottom has set but the top is still raw.
  5. Place under the grill for two minutes to set the top.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!

You can use whatever vegetables you have lying around, we also include some left over corn on the cob! This is also great with some cheese for those of you who aren’t dairy free!

p.s. Stay tuned for a review of Delicious Alchemy’s white bread mix, we used it as pizza bases…
