Beetroot and Feta Frittata
Packed full of colour and flavour, this is the perfect recipe for cooking once and eating twice – pop it into a sealable container to take half to work or store it in the fridge for tomorrow’s breakfast!
1½ tbsp coconut oil
2 beetroots, peeled, trimmed and roughly chopped
6 free-range eggs
1 red onion, peeled, halved and finely sliced
100g feta, crumbled
a few sprigs of fresh coriander, leaves chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
Put 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil into a small roasting tray and place in the oven to melt.
Once the coconut oil has melted, remove the tray from the oven, tip in the chopped beetroot and toss to coat.
Season with salt and pepper and roast in the hot oven for 40 minutes or until softened, tossing halfway through. Remove from the oven and set aside. Preheat the grill to high.
Crack the eggs into a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk until fully combined.
Heat the remaining ½ tablespoon of coconut oil in a large non-stick ovenproof pan over a medium heat. Add the red onion and fry for 5–7 minutes, until soft.
Add the beetroot and feta and pour in the egg mixture. Once starting to set, place the pan under the grill for a few minutes until set, then serve scattered with the coriander.
Thai-style Turkey Burgers
These tasty burgers have a little chilli kick and are ideal to pop into a sealable container and take to work for lunch.
300g turkey mince
4 spring onions, 2 finely chopped, 2 sliced
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped, plus extra slices
a small chunk of ginger, peeled and grated
1 free-range egg yolk
¼ of a bunch of fresh coriander, leaves chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
wholemeal pitta breads
1 tomato, sliced (optional)
In a bowl, mix the turkey mince, chopped spring onion, chopped chilli, ginger, egg yolk and most of the coriander until fully combined, then use your hands to form two burger patties.
Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat until melted. Fry the burgers for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.
Toast the pitta breads and carefully slice open. Stuff with the watercress and place a burger in each. Finish with the sliced chilli, remaining coriander, sliced spring onion and sliced tomato, if using.
Raw Salted Caramel Slices
Seriously good snacking and so moreish, the natural sweetness of the Medjool dates means that these aren’t as naughty as they taste.
200g Medjool dates, pitted
200g pecan nuts
60g desiccated coconut
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp date syrup
coconut oil, for greasing
Tip the dates into a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave to soak for around 10 minutes, then drain.
Put the pecan nuts, desiccated coconut, vanilla extract, sea salt and date syrup into a food processor. Add the dates and blitz until smooth.
Grease an 18cm square baking tin with coconut oil and transfer the mixture into the tin, patting it down to flatten.
Place in the fridge for an hour to set, and then remove and slice into 9 squares.
