New Recipe: Green Eggs and Ham

New Recipe: Green Eggs and Ham

There is no better way to spoil your mum than with a home cooked breakfast made with love this Mothers Day. Our Green Eggs and Ham fits the brief perfectly and will be enjoyed by the whole family.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1/2 cup multi-coloured quinoa, well rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, halved
  • 4 eggs, free range
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • 1 handful of basil, roughly chopped
  • 50g almonds, roughly chopped
  • 6 slices of pasture-raised prosciutto, roughly torn
  • 30g goat’s feta
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Bring 1 cup of water to the boil: add in ½ cup rinsed quinoa and a pinch of salt. Stir, turn heat down to low, and cover. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes until it has tripled in size and starts to sprout little tails. Remove from the heat, keeping it covered for an additional 5 minutes to absorb any remaining liquid.
  2. In another saucepan, bring water to the boil and steam peas and asparagus until slightly tender.
  3. To poach eggs: bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add ACV. Crack eggs into a cup and create a gentle whirlpool in the water. Slowly tip the egg into the water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  4. In a large bowl combine quinoa, peas, asparagus, basil and almonds. Top with prosciutto, goat’s feta and poached eggs. Season well and enjoy.
