Morning – is anyone feeling a little fragile this a.m. thanks to too much seasonal indulgence yesterday..?!
The Diabetes Diet has the perfect solution for you – a low-carb breakfast packed with vitamins and minerals, and very delicious too. With its kick of spice, this dish will help blow away the cobwebs and have you firing on all cylinders once more.
This recipe serves one, but can obviously be doubled up.
- 2 large, free range eggs
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1tbsp butter
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Pinch dried chilli flakes (add more or less, according to how spicy you like your food
- ½ tin chopped tomatoes (roughly 200g)
- 2tbsp grated strong cheese (Parmesan or a mature cheddar)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a small frying/omelette pan and add the diced peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally until softened (about five minutes).
Add the tomatoes, garlic and chilli flakes. Bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer and leave, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. You should be left with a thick sauce. Make two indentations in the mixture and crack the eggs in. Leave until the whites are set – about five minutes. (You may need to move the whites around a little to cook.)
Add a little salt and pepper and top with the grated cheese. Place under a pre-heated grill until the cheese is melted.
This is delicious with some salad on the side or on top of steamed broccoli. Allow roughly 10-15g carbs per serving.
