Simple recipe for a restorative breakfast (coffee included)

A hard week (car trouble) and the need to clear my fridge a bit led to this rather hearty breakfast – healthy and delicious:

conflated breakfast ready to eat

CONFLATED BREAKFAST (veg, bread, egg, coffee, beans all-in)

Serves 1 as brunch
INGREDIENTS (dropped in frying pan in this order, cooked until cooked)

Oil – enough olive oil, supplemented with coconut oil

Garlic- 3 smallish cloves

Mushroom –1 elderly but large

Chilli seeds – pinch

Kale – the last bits in a packet a dew days old

Pepper – ground 

Spinach – a droopy & damp bunch, but bought in the market yesterday

Mixed spice – pinch

Turmeric – not much

Seed mix – from the back of the store cupboard (Lidl)

Rye bread – 1 thin slice

Baked beans – about 1/3 can, found in the fridge

Coffee – I small cup of espresso (No 9 intense, Tesco) made in the Nespresso machine


Poached egg – 1, not sure what size – from mixed box, dropped into salted just-boiling water with a tsp of vinegar, then hob turned off.

  1. Making me feel hungry!! As for which drawing would make a good painting – what about Pages 4,7, 21. And I love your drawing ‘outside the surgery 3’ page 11. Think I find a painting more interesting if there are more than 1 figure. Sorry about your car – hope it’s going ok now. Hope all else is going well, Love Penny Date: Fri, 27 Mar 2015 11:34:57 +0000 To:
