If preparation is the place you’re feeling most challenged, clear off the work floor and prepare for some enjoyable and attention-grabbing meal-prep and cooking concepts:
- Chop up or spiralise uncooked greens corresponding to carrots, celery, zucchini (courgettes) and capsicums (peppers) into strips, batons and sticks, and retailer within the fridge. Then all you want do is whip up a guacamole or pesto for a scrumptious snack. I’ve used spiralised cucumbers on this dish so, if you happen to’re on the lookout for a time-saver, spiralise them prematurely and revel in their advantages on this bowl later.
- Whereas I’ve used a fried egg for this recipe, if time isn’t in your aspect, a boiled egg can do the job too. Eggs might be hard-boiled in muffin trays within the oven permitting you to cook dinner a number of batches of 12 at a time and retailer them so as to add shortly to salads and bowls for additional protein. Merely preheat the oven to 175°C (345°F), place a complete egg (in its shell) in every muffin gap, no water, and bake for 30 minutes. Cool in iced water if you must peel them instantly.

- Among the best components about breakfast bowls is the truth that you may sneak in as many greens as you may into your first meal of the day. Considered one of my favorite methods to eat greens is by sautéing or stir-frying them.

In truth, the phrase sauté́ comes from the French for ‘soar’. The excessive warmth means greens cook dinner shortly, minimising nutrient loss, whereas the frequent stirring ensures they don’t burn or follow the pan. This methodology can be utilized if you’d like a barely crisp texture. It’s extra concerned than boiling or steaming, nevertheless it’s an awesome possibility as a result of the greens retain far more flavour. Higher but, when mixed with a little bit of heat-resistant oil (corresponding to coconut oil), spices and/or a marinade, sautéed greens can convert even probably the most staunchly anti-veg member of the family.
- When selecting a pan to make use of, attempt to decide a big one that may maintain all of your veggies in a single layer and one which’s comparatively shallow, so the greens might be cooked evenly, and any steam can escape. To sauté́ greens, warmth some oil within the pan over medium to excessive warmth. Add the chopped greens, ideally beginning with all of them on the similar room temperature. Stir them incessantly till they’re properly browned and cooked by. Season to style and serve shortly.
- Liberal use of spices is the mark of a thoughtful cook dinner. Make sure you add them simply earlier than the tip of the sautéing course of, in order that they have just a little time to heat barely and launch their perfume and flavour. Contemporary herbs might be added after cooking or in the direction of the tip. Now right here’s one other warning: if you happen to’re including cheeses or sauces to your vegies, add them in nearer in the direction of the tip in order that they don’t overcook or burn. The perfect greens to sauté́ are cabbage, carrots, onions, corn, asparagus suggestions, child artichokes, capsicums (peppers), mushrooms, sugar snap peas, zucchini (courgettes) and leeks. Right here we’ve used inexperienced beans, spinach and kale that can assist you get your inexperienced on, however be happy to make use of whichever greens you could have sitting in your fridge.
Talking of greens, no breakfast bowl might be full with out the mighty avocado. Nicely, it might probably, however that’s only a unhappy breakfast bowl that I need no a part of. Avocados present a hefty supply of important fatty acids and a creaminess like no different; it’s an absolute important.
Whereas this bowl does use rice, if you happen to’re not feeling it, you can use quinoa, buckwheat or omit it altogether. No matter floats your boat or drains your grain… or not.
- This bowl is comparatively fast to make and may embrace any greens that you might have mendacity round. If you wish to begin practising your meal prep, that is the proper approach to start!
