I know what you’re thinking.
‘Molly, a banana, peach and pomegranate fruit salad has no business flaunting it’s delicious summery flavours around the blog now that Autumn is upon us.’
And… I know, I know. You’re probably right. But I couldn’t resist posting this- it’s just too damn delicious to not be shared.
Hello to Tuesday, and HELLO to these Shakshuka Baked Eggs with Avocado and Hummus. Let’s get this party started, shall we?
Now, baked eggs, or Shakshuka as they are called in North Africa, are without a doubt one of my all time favourite things to eat for breakfast, brunch, lunch OR dinner. They’re a fantastically versatile dish- but more on that later. In fact, the only recipe that could possibly compare in terms of versatility, flavour and speed are overnight oats. Come to think of it, my pumpkin spice overnight oats should be making an appearance any day now that autumn is on its way. Excitement levels are HIGH!!!
Peanut butter and jelly, my friends!!!
Now, if you’re an individual born outside of the USA who is currently reading this and thinking: “Peanut butter… and jelly?! Has Molly finally lost it?‘ then first of all, don’t worry. I haven’t ACTUALLY mixed peanut butter with jelly. That would be unthinkable.
I know I say this a lot, but… I’m REALLY excited about this breakfast parfait.
Not least because I finally feel like I could be a potential candidate for that elite club of instagram foodies who post beautifully layered mason jars full of overnight oats. I mean look at those beautiful colours, right?!
…These exclamation marks are a visual representation of what is happening inside my head when I think of this venison omelette and how freaking delicious it is.
I know what you might be thinking. Apples… in an omelette? And with sausages…?
My great love… my nemesis. So delicious, so moreish, so… oh no, I’ve eaten it all.
In short: I can’t be trusted around granola.
What is it that makes it so addictive?! I’m thinking it has to do with the crunchy clusters. And that perfect hint of sweetness. And of course, the fruit or nuts or chocolate or whatever it’s mixed in with. It ticks ALL the boxes: fab texture, satisfying crunch, sweet but not artificial flavour, EXTRA DELICIOUS BITS, and the ability to taste amazing with everything. Yogurt? YUP. Straight up with a splash of milk, some berries and a few slices of banana? OH yes. And as a smoothie bowl topping? UH YES PLEASE.
*sings* If you like Pina Colada’s, and getting caught in the raiiiin…
I’m sorry. It had to be done. Is there a person alive who can think of a Pina Colada and not get that song immediately stuck in their head? If there is, I’d like to meet them and discover their secrets.
This raspberry, nectarine and vanilla protein smoothie is my new squeeze.
The thing is, myself and smoothies have a bit of a love-hate relationship. One week it’s on, the next it’s off. It’s kinda tricky to keep up with us.
But we’ll figure it out, we always do.
At the moment? Well: things are on. Like, most definitely on.
