Avocado on toast

A good breakfast doesn’t need to be complicated. With the right herbs and spices, a simple avocado smash with some fried mushrooms can be a cheap alternative to going out for breakfast. Here I’ve fried the mushrooms in olive oil, garlic, Italian spices, oregano and a good sprinkle of salt/pepper. Add a little water if the mushrooms are burning. For the avocado, add a little olive oil and salt/pepper for extra flavour.

Beetroot & pumpkin salad

Great dishes don’t have to difficult. Pick a few ingredients you love or have tasted recently and try recreating your own delicious meal. For me, beetroot and feta go well together and they are always in my kitchen. Tonight I added roasted pumpkin (in coconut oil) for something different. Kale is something I’ve been cooking with more and more lately. I prefer it to normal salad leaves because you control the texture when steaming (crunchy or softer).

Finish this salad with olive oil and sprinkle with pine nuts. Simple and easy for those not too confident in the kitchen.
