So it is Sunday and you want to treat yourself to a special breakfast? Nothing wrong with that!
Specially if you had a late night out the previous day, your liver will be craving for food when you get up!
There are many possible variations to this plate. On a Sunday I just want more. So I basically open my fridge, look at the left-overs and vegetables I have and decide on the spot what I am going to make.
What you need
•cast iron grill pan
Ingredients (for 2 people)
•1 zucchini, washed, sliced and salted/peppered
•14 cherry tomatoes, washed, salted/peppered
•100g (wild Alaskan Sockeye) salmon
•1/4 celery root
•2 tbsps coconut/virgin olive oil
•1 tbsp red wine vinegar
•8 Lifefood carrot crackers
What you do
•preheat your oven to 230°C
•peel the celery root, then cut it in cubes. Toss the cubes in either a non-stick oven dish or cover one with parchment paper. Add some salt and pepper and bake for approx. 20 min. Once in a while, take the oven dish out of the oven and shake the cubes around so they brown evenly.
•preheat your cast iron pan to very hot and pour a little (coconut or extra virgin olive) oil. Now grill the zucchini slices. Put aside. Do the same with the cherry tomatoes.
•in the meantime, bring the water of your egg poacher to the boil. Add a little coconut/extra virgin oil in each of the different egg cups and a few drops of vinegar. Now crack each egg into an egg cup, add salt and pepper. Cover and cook for approx. 10 min.
•put each plate together: 50g of wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon, some slices of grilled zucchini, 7 grilled cherry tomatoes, some cubes of baked celery root and the poached eggs
•supplement with 4 Lifefood carrot crackers
•I basically had some left over baked celery root, so it took me little effort to just warm up the celery root cubes for my Breakfast of Champions. You could omit the celery root cubes all together and replace it by another grilled vegetable such as sliced egg plant or mushrooms
•if you cannot get hold of carrot crackers where you live, you could instead make some American Pancakes (recipe in this blog)
•if you do not own an egg poacher, no worries! You can try free styling it, using a pan full of water. Check the video.
•Wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon is my ultimate favorite. Also here I am sure you can think of many healthy meat, fish or poultry alternatives. Just make sure they come from a reliable source.
