The perfect weekend brunch

Salmon & scrambles

Description: Salmon & scrambles

Serves 2

It is perfect because … eggs are goodness in a shell. Rich in high- quality protein and with a low energy density (the amount of calories a food has per gram), the current Advise is that we just cannot get enough of them. Low- calorie, but tasty smoked salmon tops up your B vits, selenium and omega- 3 (just do not add salt as it is already high in sodium). Finish with low- GI rye bread for slow- release energy that will keep you on top form all morning.

·         2 free- range eggs

·         2tbsp skimmed milk

·         Freshly ground black pepper

·         Small bunch chives, chopped

·         2 slices smoked salmon

·         2 slices multigrain rye bread

  1. Put the bread on to toast. Beat the eggs in a bowl with the milk, half the chopped chives and the pepper.
  2. Heat a non- stick pan, pour in the egg mixture and let it sit for 30 seconds until the bottom layer of egg is cooked. Using a wooden spoon, stir and fold the eggs. Leave it for another 10 seconds and stir again. the eggs should not be chopped into tiny pieces but should have some body. When they are just cooked but still look a little wet, remove from the heat.
  3. To the bread with the eggs and a slice of salmon, sprinkle over the remaining chives and another grind of pepper.

Egg & mushroom Florentine … if you prefer a veggie option

Spinach is one of the most nutrient- dense foods in existence; go organic to avoid high pesticide residues.

·         2 large handfuls spinach

·         1 sprig of tarrangon, chopped
