DLCS Management liked my Cauliflower Parlsey Soup recipe, which sent me over to visit her blog where I found a kindred spirit writing about food and art and artists!
Dee has a post about Wakame sea vegetable with a recipe for salad which reminded me of my current favorite breakfasts! This is a great scramble when you want a high protein meal to start your day.
It’s worth mentioning sea vegetable helps burn that really unhealthy fat stored round your internal organs, so also reduces unwanted abdominal fat. I do notice my tummy getting smaller since adding this to my diet.
Vegans can leave out the egg and for added protein, mix with quinoa. If you make this for breakfast before going to work, you need to put the quinoa on to cook before you take your shower! Or use some left overs.
Here’s the dope on this delicious, healthy breakfast. These quantities will make enough scramble for 2 pitas or 2 wraps.
- crush a dessertspoonful full of dried wakame and soak in hot water
- slice ‘n’ dice a small clove of garlic and about 2 inches of leek
- sauté together in a little oil in a non-stick pan
- mash about 75 grams of tofu with a fork and add to the pan
- sprinkle with a teensy weensy pinch of dried red-hot chili, salt ‘n’ pepper to taste, and a dash of soya sauce
- stir it around with a spatula or spoon (whichever’s handy!)
- chop a generous handful of spinach, chard, or other suitable green (cabbage will do, though not as delicate) and add to the pan
- mix it all together
- turn the heat down low, put a lid on it
- make a cup of tea or coffee (to drink while you cook!)
- drain the sea vegetable and squeeze out excess water, chop it up with a good sharp knife, or cut with kitchen scissors
- pop your pita or preferred bread in the toaster
- crack an egg on the side of the pan and stir it in, to scramble it
- add the wakame (you don’t need to cook it)
- sprinkle with seeds (linseed, hemp and pumpkin)
- pop the toast – if you’re using bread, spread the scrambled mixture over the toast
- sit down to eat
To eat on the run use pita:
- Pop the pita in the toaster AFTER you add the egg (you just want to warm it up a bit to soften it).
- Stuff the scramble in the pita, wrap in aluminum foil, dash out the door and eat it on the go.
Hope you finished your coffee!
It also works really well in a wrap:
- Warm the wrap by placing it on top of the scrambled mixture for a minute or so, with the lid on, turn and warm the other side.
- Lay the wrap out and place your scrambled mixture along one side.
- Fold up the bottom, fold over the edge the scramble is on, then roll the wrap to completely enclose the scramble.
- Wrap in aluminum foil and eat on the run.
You can also make a little package by folding in the two sides, then the bottom. But you have to sit down at home to eat that, because it falls all over the place.
