A place for all kinds of food, crafts and general nerdery
I have to go for a company medical check and the program asks you to keep a food diary. Over the last 2 – 3 weeks, I’ve been making a series of cakes and other cake-based paraphernalia and I *MAY* have been eating a lot of the left-overs…..ok, we all know there is no “may” about it. So I have decided to kick-start my metabolism a little and also try out a few foods that I have seen multiple sources claim to be good for you, yet never got around to actually trying. I see it as a kick up the backside to overcome my fussiness.
Today’s list consists of:
I used the recipe from my Oven Baked Eggs post but modified it a little…mainly because I didn’t have any milk.
The new recipe is as follows:
1/4 tsp salt
65g natural yogurt
100g cottage cheese.
I cut the avocado in half and removed the stone in the middle. Using a spoon between the flesh and the skin, I scooped the avocado out into a bowl. Easiest method EVER. So simple 🙂
I mashed the avocado up and added it to the jug with the eggs, salt and yogurt in. I then added the cottage cheese and whisked it, Then cook in the same way as the normal egg recipe.
I served it on toast and with a couple slices of smoked salmon. I didn’t know how I would like avocado as I have never enjoyed guacamole but this is just mild enough and creamy enough to work 🙂
I really enjoyed it and think I will definitely be including this in my recipe collections 🙂
