DIY oaty fruity cereal
Mixed seeds, e.g. pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy
Mixed nuts, e.g. almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts
Fresh fruit/berries, e.g. blueberries, raspberries, strawberries
Mixed nuts, such as brazils, hazelnuts, walnuts
Jumbo rolled oats
Seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 large free-range eggs
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 knob of unsalted butter
1 bunch of small asparagus
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas 4.
Beat the eggs with a little sea salt and black pepper.
Heat the oil and butter in a 19cm ovenproof frying pan or cast-iron dish over a medium heat. Trim and add the asparagus for 5 minutes.
Add the eggs, cook for 3 minutes then bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden and fluffy.
Serve hot or cold, with a drizzle of hot sauce, such as harissa, if you like.
Tomato and basil omelette
2 sprigs of fresh basil
3 cherry tomatoes
2 large free-range eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
Pick the leaves off the basil and roughly tear them.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in half on a chopping board.
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl.
Add a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.
Beat well with a fork until fully combined.
Place a small non-stick frying pan on a low heat to warm up. Meanwhile…
Add ½ tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and turn the heat up to high.
Carefully add the tomatoes and fry for 1 minute.
Turn the heat down to low and sprinkle over the basil leaves.
Carefully pour in the eggs, then tilt the pan to spread them out evenly.
Using a fork, swirl the eggs around the pan a little.
When the omelette begins to cook and firm up, but still has a little raw egg on top, use a spatula to ease around the edges of the omelette, then fold it over in half – when it starts to turn golden brown underneath, remove the pan from the heat and slide the omelette onto a plate.
