Coconut Oil: Nature’s Perfect Ingredient

This is a good way to start your day, and the ideal breakfast recipe to help you think outside the cereal box. The quinoa will keep you full all morning, and will help those energy levels to soar. I like to serve this with a slice of gluten-free bread to mop up any egg yolk and tomato juices.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
40g quinoa
200ml water or vegetable stock
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lucy bee coconut oil, melted
4 flat mushrooms, stalks removed, ideally Portobello
handful cashew nuts, (optional)
2 medium eggs
handful baby spinach leaves
himalayan salt
ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
chopped parsley or pea shoots
slice gluten-free bread

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the quinoa and water or stock (for more flavour) in a pan and cook over a medium heat for 10–12 minutes, until softened. Drain and set aside.
  3. Place the tomato halves on a baking tray, sprinkle with the garlic, drizzle over half the coconut oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place the mushrooms and cashew nuts, if using, on a separate baking tray and brush with the remaining coconut oil, then place both trays in the oven and bake the tomatoes for 15 minutes and the mushrooms and cashew nuts for 10 minutes.
  4. Stuff the cooked mushrooms with the drained quinoa, then return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, add boiling water to about a 10cm depth to a saucepan. Lower the heat so that the water is just off the boil, then crack both eggs into the water and cook for 3 minutes (for a runny yolk). Remove with a slotted spoon.
  6. Spread a layer of spinach across each plate, then add the mushrooms and cashew nuts. Scatter the tomatoes over the mushrooms and then place poached egg on top. Season, scatter over chopped parsley or pea shoots, then serve immediately with slices of gluten-free bread.
