This is a variation on the basic muffin recipe I usually use. But these come out a lot moister. My parents prefer them to the usual recipe. Don't get intimidated by the number of steps. Whipping these up takes no more than 10 minutes.
This is my mother's recipe. The dough is universal so the filling can vary. My favourites are this feta/ricotta mixture, melty cheese (just plain) and spiced cooked chicken (on the pan or grill). Feel free to experiment!
This is not the traditional Cuban dish as far as preparation goes. It's a much easier and faster version that saves tames and is full of taste.
This is my basic recipe that use to make other rice recipes from. It always turns out perfect and keeps well in the fridge.
Yet another variation on my breakfast staple. Check out my full list of recipes for other ideas.
One more variation on my summer breakfast.
Another variation for when pineapples are in season.
Yet another variation on my summer breakfast.
A tropical variation on my breakfast stable. Milder in taste than berries so I'm still looking for the perfect condiment to this.
One of my summer breakfast staples.
The acidity of the apricot goes great with the spicy bite of the ginger root. Be careful though - the ginger adds a hot note.
Something different from berries for breakfats
I do a batch of this and store it in the fridge to mix with herbs, spices and sometimes nuts as a side to my protein and veggies.
Taken off Food.com and Chef DrGaellon.
This recipe changes over time so this is my current variation.
NOTE Nutritional Info is for Bulgarian plain yogurt which seems to be thinner than the standard entry here. You might achieve the same result with 150 thiker yogurt and 100-150 g water.
My breakfast staple. I have this (varying the berries) almost every day of the week in summer. Never fails to wake me up. Berries generally are fibre rich but for and additional fibre kick you can add a tablespoonful of bran.
Another variation of my breakfast staple.This one goes great with a couple of fresh mint leaves in it. Very sommery!
I change the recipe proportions from time to time but I always keep it up to date with my current tastes.
This is a recipe from Food.com that I stumbled upon. It is a blank canvas that can be embelished with nuts, chocolate chips, died fruit or fresh fruit that I add to my tracker separately according to what I have used in the batch. It's not a recipe low on sugar or calories but I still need to track it so this is why I added it here.
Another variation of my breakfast staple.
Low on calories, high on taste. You could use a low-fat sour cream to make it even leaner but I don't have that available to me here and, frankly, it does not make that much of a difference for one serving.
This is a very very quick fix dish and incredibly filling. A slice of rye bread on the side turns it into a complete meal.
I compiled this from several recipes on the internet and then tweaked it to lower the fat content. Definitely works for me.
A quick version.
Tahini is ground sesame seeds. This is a great dressing or dip for grilled chicken, salads or steamed veggies, especially broccoli. Has a strong, spicy and nutty taste.
