post yoga brunch recipes!

I want to share with you some of my favourite brunches which I sometimes make after my morning yoga practice! They are all quick and easy recipes which take between 5-15 minutes to make. All the brunches are vegetarian and some are vegan, or you can add vegan substitutes if you prefer. As many people know I absolutely love food (haha), I have never eaten much meat but I have been vegetarian for eighteen months now and I feel so much better and healthier for it, I’ve found it’s actually really easy to cook delicious vegetarian meals and they are usually healthier too! So here goes…

Banana pancakes – Makes 5-6 pancakes
Ingredients:
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 table spoons of oats
  • Your favourite healthy toppings

 

Method:
  • Put a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and add a drizzle of oil to the pan (you don’t need much!).
  • Blend banana, eggs and oats together in a food processor or a whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour the batter into the frying pan in small circles around 4-5” wide.
  • Wait around 30 seconds and flip the pancake with a spatula and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  • Top with your favourite toppings! I like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, natural yoghurt and honey.

Smashed avocado and poached eggs on toast
Ingredients:
  • 1 or 2 slices of wholemeal/brown sliced bread
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 lime
  • Small handful of fresh coriander
  • Sprinkle of salt/pepper
  • 1 egg

 

Method:
  • Bring a pan of water to the boil and crack your egg into a bowl (this makes it easier to slide into the pan).
  • Stir the water to create a gentle whirlpool.
  • Slowly tip the egg into the centre of the pan. Make sure the heat is low enough not to throw the egg around – there should only be small bubbles rising.
  • Cook for 4 minutes or until the white is set.
  • Put your toast in the toaster.
  • Scrape the avocado into a bowl and begin to mash with a fork, add the coriander, a small sprinkle of salt and pepper, and squeeze a drizzle of lime juice into the bowl and continue to mash until you’ve reached your desired texture.
  • Spread the avocado over the toast and add the poached egg on top!
