Eggs in Blankets

Eggs in BlanketsEggs are such a great and healthy way to start the day. Before I decided to change my diet, bread was a big part of my breakfast and I couldn’t get my head around what you would have with your eggs or with your bacon, because everything should be sandwiched or on toast! Don’t get me wrong I still eat bread from time to time and I’ll have a nice sourdough loaf in the freezer for those occasions but I’ll let you in on a secret you can make a tasty breakfast without toast!!!

So here’s the simple recipe for eggs in blankets. It’s a quick an easy way to cook your eggs and up your protein intake. And you can try this with turkey rashers as well as bacon..

Ingredients:

  • 6 rashers of bacon
  • 3 large eggs
  • a pinch of chilli flakes
  • a pinch of pepper
  • chopped coriander for garnish
  1. First of all pre-heat the oven to 160C (fan-assisted).
  2. Then grease a muffin tin with some coconut oil or ghee. Line each part of the muffin tin with one rasher of bacon.
  3. Now you have 2 options here and it depends on how you like your bacon; I like mine well done so I put the bacon lined muffin tin in the oven for 5 minutes before adding the egg mixture. If you like your bacon just cooked skip straight to step 4
  4. Beat 3 eggs (1 egg will make 2 portions) and add in some pepper and chilli flakes for flavour
  5. Pour the egg mixture into your bacon parcels
  6. Pop in the oven and bake your eggs in blankets for 15 minutes
  7. Remove the egg and bacon nest from the muffin tin and scatter with coriander to taste.

And there you have it, an easy recipe to make eggs for breakfast without any bread and plenty of flavour! 🙂

Enjoy!

Nut Milk

Nut Milk

People mocked my nut milk bag purchase despite this being something I’d wanted to buy for AGES but had never quite gotten around to it. I have to say buying this was literally one of the single most exciting days of my life, only trumped by the fact that I actually made my own nut milk quickly a few days later!!

Parcel Chicken

Parcel chicken

Chicken is one of my most favourite things to cook because there are sooooo many variations and this parcel chicken recipe certainly proves it!! In this recipe I used red rice but you could easily use cauliflower rice or quinoa for an equally delicious dish!

Hummus

Hummus

Homemade Hummus Recipe

Hummus is amazing! It’s the one thing I cannot avoid when there are snacks out at a party! And the great thing is that if you make your hummus at home it’s super duper healthy 🙂

Hummus seemed like a really daunting thing for me to make but it’s actually surprisingly easy. It takes a few minutes to make and a few minutes to eat!

The only ingredients you’ll need to make this is:

  • 1 tin of chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 red pepper chopped roughly
  • 1 clove of chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste or almond butter.

To make your hummus simply pop all of the ingredient into a blender and blitz until it’s smooth. Spoon into a jar and refrigerate until you want to devour it! I like having mine with slightly heated pitta bread, sticks of pepper or carrot sticks 🙂

Hope you enjoy!! Why not follow my instagram account for more delicious recipe inspiration! And share your own by tagging me @RooDeRennes.

Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks - Rosemary Roasted Pecans

Healthy Snacks – Rosemary Roasted Pecans

So the January resolutions of getting fit and healthy are in full swing but there is one thing getting in your way; healthy snacks! So many people fall at this hurdle, they’re at work and suddenly the munchies take hold of you and you’re suddenly starving and it’s hours until lunch time! Noooooooo! Then you check your purse and trundle off to the vending machine and buy the “healthy” flapjack! Be prepared people! Making your own healthy snacks so you can have a stash in your bag or in your desk drawer is a great way to make sure you don’t fall off of the wagon! My latest healthy snack was inspired by Madeleine Shaw and is so quick and easy to make that you’ll be kicking yourself for not having done it sooner!

Rosemary roasted pecans is the best of all the healthy snacks! Firstly in my opinion pecans always taste better when they’re roasted and secondly nuts have all of the yummy good fats that you need in you want and not all of the bad sugary fats that you want to avoid.

So here’s what you do. Preheat your oven to 160C. Take your pecans and scatter them on a baking tray. Drizzle some melted coconut oil over them or some rapeseed oil. Then take some fresh rosemary and fling across the nuts! Shake the tray so everything gets all mixed together. Then bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes. Once the nuts have cooled a little, take some kitchen paper and put it on the work surface, then sprinkle the nuts on top then get some more kitchen paper and put it on top and then dab the nuts just to get off any excess oil, pop the nuts in a little baggy or tupperware container, and now you have the ultimate, most delicious of all healthy snacks at your fingertips whilst you are on the go!

Chilli

chilliOne of my favourite “stodge” recipes is a chilli, it makes me feel like I’m being naughty and eating something as treat but it’s actually super healthy and the chilli gives a nice fiery kick of heat to warm your cockles! This chilli recipe is quite simply a variation of my previous chilli recipe but with one amazing difference!! Whilst you are cooking the chilli, bake a potato. For best results, pre-heat your oven to 200C, prick your potato all over drizzle with olive oil, himalayan salt and a twist of pepper, then pop in the microwave for 5 minutes, turn and cook for a further 5 minutes and then pop it in the oven to crisp up the skin for 20 minutes. (make it paleo by using a sweet potato)

crockpot chilliNow, back to the chilli! Make sure you cook this exactly the same as my chilli recipe and let the sauce thicken. You can cook this quickly on the hob it doesn’t have to be done in the crockpot. Then once the potato has cooked, split in half and scoop out the flesh and pop in a bowl and mash it up so it’s really smooth. If you want to make it really creamy add a little bit of mashed avocado to it :). Then take your little potato boat and put it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, then scoop some chilli and put it inside the potato (careful not to overload it!) and then repeat this for the other half of the potato. Finally using a fork or spoon put your mashed potato back on top of the chilli mixture inside your potato. sprinkle a smidge of cheese on it you like and then pop it back in the oven or under a grill to crisp up the potato mixture on top of the chilli, serve garnished with fresh coriander.

So what’s so great about this chilli recipe? Firstly you’re getting a really good mix of fats, proteins and carbs, and secondly by putting your chilli mixture into your potato it’s really helping you to manage your portion control! Double whammy!

Try it out for yourself! I promise you there is no other chilli recipe quite like it!
