I love to brunch.
I live to breakfast.
It is my favorite meal.
It is a crucial part of your day.
One of my favorite things is to jazz up breakfast with oodles of colour & some spice to get the metabolism up and running. Hence the breakfast taco is a favourite in our house. The best is when Joshua and I team up. The other day we made this little beauty:
Kale Slaw & French Scrambled Taco
|Oodles of colour and flavour.|
4 farm fresh eggs
2 leaves of green or purple kale, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 handful pea shoots, chopped
4 cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/2 bell pepper (your choice), chopped
4 gf organic corn taco shells
1 tbsp Yogurt
Green onions (garnish)
Hot sauce of your choice.
What to do:
Gently scramble eggs in a classic french style with garlic - wet and loose. Not over cooked. Toast tortilla on stove element or in oven. Chop kale into strands. Add tomatoes, shoots, yogurt, peppers, sea salt and pepper. Toss gently. Once tacos are toasted, top with egg and kale slaw. Drizzle with your choice of hot sauce or fresh jalapenos. Some green onions for garnish. Voilà! Easy breakfast for two in under 15 minutes. Great for lunch too! Must admit Josh did eggs and I sous chef'd...
Eggs ~ Good source of protein, promote healthy thyroid function, promotes brain & heart health.
Kale ~ Great brassica vegetable associated with optimal health (I'm addicted and will never be off the kale train), full of nutrients - omega 3, fiber, folic acid, B6, vitamin E & potassium.
Yogurt ~ If you eat dairy, I suggest a full fat sheep or goat yogurt (has a tart and slightly game-y taste) if not a coconut yogurt or cashew cream would work well too. Good Bacteria - great for immune system, digestion, weight control.
Lots of goodness to this powerful little breakfast. Remember to eat with colour & texture in 2015!
Happy New Year
