This may sound slightly bonkers, but it really is wonderful, and perfect if you want to try something new for brunch. I came up with it one morning when I had a few leftovers lurking in the fridge, and it has been a firm favourite ever since.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 beetroot, cooked and prepared
1 smoked mackerel fillet
olive oil, for cooking
3 eggs
1 teaspoon sage
sea salt
black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Dice the beetroot and break the mackerel fillet into several pieces. Heat a little olive oil in a small ovenproof frying pan or omelette pan, add the beetroot and mackerel and cook for 2–3 minutes.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour them into the pan, making sure all the ingredients are well spread out and are covered by the eggs. Sprinkle over the sage and cook over a medium heat for about 4 minutes, until the under side is cooked.
  3. Transfer the pan to the grill and cook for about 4 minutes, until the eggs have set. Serve warm.

Good for:

  • Joint health, blood sugar management, high blood pressure and high cholesterol

Clever combination:

  • This is a real heart-healthy dynamo: beetroot has been shown to increase the production of nitric oxide in blood vessels, which relaxes blood vessel walls and can temporarily lower blood pressure, while mackerel is rich in omega-3, which improves good and bad cholesterol ratios.
