apple 

handful of pecans or walnuts  

handful of raisins / sultanas  

Honey or maple syrup

Step 3

Before taking off the hob, stir in ½ tsp of cinnamon and a handful of raisins until fully combined. 

Step 4

For the apple compote, simply chop up an apple into small cubes with 1tsp water and 1tsp of cinnamon. Place in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until the apple is soft and stewed.  

Step 5

Now it’s time to pimp your porridge with an array of delicious and nutritious toppings. 

Step 6

Stewed apple is the main element, then crumbled pecans or walnuts, a drizzle of honey/maple and if you’re feeling extra fancy a spoonful of nut butter or biscuit spread is the perfect addition. 

Step 7

Enjoy this creamy and comforting bowl of oats at any time of day.

Step 3

Slice the halloumi into 8 pieces and pat dry. Cook in a pan or griddle on a medium heat until golden brown.  

Step 4

Once cooked, place the spinach into the same pan until lovely and wilted. 

Step 5

Slice up your avocado and bread of choice and get toasting. 

Step 6

Next, arrange the toast, sliced avocado, gorgeously sweet and gooey tomatoes, halloumi, and spinach on a plate before adding a dollop of hummus, sprinkle of smoked paprika and drizzle of balsamic glaze.

avocado 

220g spinach  

200g cherry vine tomatoes

Easy Peasy Pancakes 

Serves:
4

Difficulty:
Easy

Cooking Time:
10 mins

Ingredients

cup self-raising flour  

cup milk of choice  

large egg 

tablespoon oil / knob of butter  

Method

Step 1

Fill a medium sized cup with flour and tip into a mixing bowl. Fill the same cup with milk and pour into the bowl, before cracking in the egg.  

Step 2

Whisk until a smooth batter is formed.  

Step 3

Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot, add a small knob of butter or spoonful of oil. 

Step 4

Once the butter has melted and starts to sizzle slightlyspoon in the batter. 

Step 5

Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes on each side. When bubbles appear and the pancake moves freely in the pan, it’s time to flip!  

Step 6

In between each batch, use some kitchen roll to wipe out the pan before adding another small knob of butter to cook the next batch and prevent sticking. 

Step 7

Serve the pancakes with all of your much-loved toppings – berries, Nutella, yogurt, honey, syrup, banana, peanut butter, biscoff spread, the list really is endless. 

Elevated Avo Toast

Serves:
2

Difficulty:
Easy

Cooking Time:
15 mins

Method

Step 1

Chop mushrooms – don’t make these too small as they shrink when cooked. 

Step 2

Add a knob of butter or drizzle of oil to a non-stick pan and set on a medium heat. 

Step 3

Finely chop 1-2 garlic cloves and sauté for a couple of minutes. 

Step 4

Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook on low-medium heat. Cooking slower and for a longer period of time will allow the mushrooms to go soft and juicy. 

Step 5

While the mushrooms are cooking, slice up some bread and lightly toast. 

Step 6

Once toasted, rub 1 garlic clove onto the toast, this is optional but adds a flavour explosion! 

Step 7

Slice half an avocado and mash onto the toast, season with salt, pepper, chili flakes and lemon juice. 

Step 8

Assemble the cooked garlicky mushrooms atop the creamy, avocado toast. 

Step 9

Finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze for a restaurant worthy brunch dish.  

Ingredients

avocado  

Sourdough  

250g chestnut mushrooms  

3-4 garlic cloves 

Butter or olive oil 

Balsamic glaze
