So last night was my first attempt at bagels!
Super simple to whip the dough up, just tricky to get the ring shape – apparently there is a better technique where you make them into balls, stick your finger in and swirl it round… gonna try that next time!
Boiling bread was something I thought I would never do but it’s actually easier than it sounds! Maybe I’ll do a step by step process next time 😁
I used a recipe from the @rivercottagehandbook no.3 bread, my new bible 😂
Porridge is my breakfast staple!
It’s so versatile and is a great source of fibre so it will help with your digestion and keeps you fuller for longer 😁
This ones super easy, just slice an apple, pop it in a pan with a little coconut oil, sugar and cinnamon and finish with walnuts 🤤
NB. I just use water for my porridge as I find it creamy enough, but your favourite plant-based milk would work just as well!
Mushrooms on bagels
I’d normally do this breakfast on sourdough but since I still have a surplus of bagels…😂
- 4 Forestiere mushrooms (only £1 at Tesco atm) – Spoon of garlic (lazy garlic ftw)
- Tsp of thyme
- Handful of Kale
- Pumpkin seeds
- Olive oil
Throw the mushrooms in a pan with some salt and olive oil and cook for 5 mins. Then add the garlic and thyme and cook for another 2 mins. Finally throw in the kale just to warm through, put on top of a toasted bagel (toast!) and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and parsley!
I toast a load of pumpkin seeds so they brown and pop, then keep them in a Tupperware so they’re ready to eat! So much tastier when toasted!
Pancakes – delicious and nutritious…
Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast??
Got hold of some buckwheat flour yesterday and these pancakes make a nice change from porridge! They use banana instead of egg to hold the batter together which adds a nice sweetness too. Topped with maple syrup, raspberries and pear 🤤
The batter for these comes out super thick so you could get inventive with your pancake shapes too!
