Warming Winter Brunch


Breakfast for many of us who want to eat well and avoid nutritionally deprived sugary cereals and bread, it can be difficult to know what to eat for breakfast.

I thought I would share this easy to make meal that is a great way to start the day and also a great lunch. It contains a healthy gluten free grain 'Millet' which is packed with nutrients such as Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc and B vitamins. It is also high in fiber which aids the process of healthy digestion and elimination and feeds the good bacteria in your colon.


Ingredients (makes enough for 2 servings)

4 heaped tablespoons of Millet seed

2 cups of vegetable stock

A handful chopped vegetables (I used beetroot, butternut squash, broccoli and Kale) This is also available frozen from Tesco's as a mix which is a great time saver in the mornings!

Cherry tomatoes 6-8

3 mushrooms chopped

6 rashers of organic bacon (Can be swapped for tofu if you are vegetarian).

Put the millet and vegetable stock into a pan with the chopped vegetables and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook for 10-15 mins until the millet is soft and fluffy and most of the stock has been absorbed.

Whist this is cooking fry the chopped mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and bacon with a little coconut oil.

Drain any excess water from the millet, combine with the bacon mixture and enjoy!
