Fortunately, lettuce is not my future (I mean, I like lettuce and all, but it ain't no comfort food). There are so many amazing foods bursting with flavor that I get to eat! Speaking of lettuce, did you know that swiss chard has a buttery texture and a natural saltiness? And it's beautiful! Look at some, or (even better) buy some, next time you're at the grocery store.
Sorry, I'm getting off topic now...back to breakfast. How about I stop with the words and show you more pictures of what I eat for brunch.
Quiche! My friend Courtney had a b'day recently, and she had the brilliant idea of having a brunch themed dinner party. So I whipped up this little beauty. By "whipped up" I mean, I was in the kitchen for about an hour trying to decide what to make and then modifying recipes to create something I could eat (but I love doing that stuff). Now that it's created, it's a super quick recipe that can be whipped up. :)
It has a millet crust, eggs, spinach and sweet onion. The ham isn't really ham at all, it's actually a couple of these (I'm not a big fan of pork).
Here's the brunch-loving birthday girl (left) with another sweet friend, Ansley. It was such a fun night of friends and food! I may steal the idea for my next birthday...
Want to make this quiche? Here's how:
For the crust, follow this recipe for bajra flatbread, only through the step that gets you a ball of dough. Press dough into the bottom of a quiche/pie baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes at 350F.
While the crust is baking, mix together:
1 cup full fat coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/2-1 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/2-3/4 cup ham, cut into small cubes (I used 2 uncured, all beef grass-fed organic hot dogs)
1/4-1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
1-2 tsp italian seasoning mix (or oregano, basil, thyme, whatever flavor you like)
1/2 tsp sea salt
Then, pour egg/ham/spinach mixture over crust. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes, or when sides are brown.
