Brunch Sunday Brunch at home

A healthy brunch

Waking up and taking your sweet time to laze about, drink freshly pressed coffee and make a Sunday brunch has been a ritual in the DTS HQ as of late. 

Jackson does not participate in the coffee drinking bit.. or ‘dirty water’ as he calls it.. (I can’t believe I’m dating a coffee hater.. ahhh the things you do) Anyway.. I was after a healthy brunch recipe with eggs so when this recipe popped into my mind, I was one happy girl. 

I’ve woken up dreaming of avocado pancakes, baked eggs with gooey mozzarella and other delicious brunch meals but last week I woke up craving HEALTHY STUFF!

Sunday brunch is meant to be one of the indulgent parts of my week. Should I be wanting sprouts and kale?! Hell no! But here we are..

vegetarian brunch ideas healthy and quick

I raided my fridge and had tuscan kale, sprouts, avocado, horseradish, eggs and an amazing rye crisp bread type thing.

It took no time to prepare and I felt amazing eating this brunch knowing I was getting 3 of my 5 serves of veggies for breakfast. That meant I could have mac and cheese for dinner as my friend Katie says: “Because balance!”

vegetarian breakfast ideas that are healthy and quic k

One of my favourite kitchen past times is whipping up breakfasts. Give me an egg, some pita bread and some ricotta and watch me soar. I often make simple but fresh things and always, always savoury. 

vegetarian brekafast pizza with tomatoes and egg - an easy and quick breakfast idea for savoury food

The meal above was made up of some dill roasted tomato slices, 2 eggs and ricotta on a wholemeal pita. I sliced the tomatoes, placed them on the pita and seasoned with dill. I then added a crumble of ricotta and cooked in the oven for 5-6 minutes (180deg cel) until the tomatoes had started to cook. I then cracked 2 eggs onto my pizza (of sorts) and baked for a further 6-8 minutes or until the eggs were cooked to me own liking. BAM. Breakfast pizza! 

I also did my make up whilst this was in the oven so I felt like a super effecient mad woman that morning. Whats a morning ritual for you? I’d love to know in the comments below.  

I always have to make a wild breakfast at home so I’m fueled and ready for the day! 

I hope you have a wonderful day, Bec xo

    What a great way to start the day! And I love making pizzas from flatbreads, have done it for years (and thought I was a little odd lol!) My favorite is fresh crushed tomatoes, freshly picked oregano from the garden, and fior di latte – fresh mozzarella – it’s superb 🙂

    Thanks for contributing this post to the Sunday Brunch Magazine,

    All the best,

      It’s a great mantra. Chocolate? Because Balance.

    Gorgeous looking breaky! I’ll add it to the rotation this week because balance 😉 Thanks for the link too 🙂

      I just keep saying it every time I eat some chippies or chocolate haha. Had to borrow it 😉

    This looks delicious! I settled for good ol’ avocado on toast this morning, but my boyfriend is currently whipping up a big brunch for himself. He was craving an omelette, but we had no eggs so he had to run out to the store. He just got home and was so excited about a huge sale on cheese that he forgot to get eggs ha! Not sure what he’s cooking now. In the mornings I always drink hot lemon water or decaf coffee. Caffeine gives me the jitters, but there’s still something about having a coffee in the morning even if it’s decaf!

      I agree! I should get some decaf for those mornings where I’m a bit too anxxy for coffee. How lemon water works wonders though, I love that. What did he make?! thats funny.. haha a breakfast of cheese mmm

    Oh my goodness…. you are making me hungry as well as excited about breakfast! I love both these idea’s. I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut for brekkie of late, just eating eggs, fried, scrambled or poached. Can’t wait to test your suggestions out. I know my husband will love them too! Thanks Bec.
    Have a great week!

    • Reply Bec November 16, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      No worries! I sometimes get stuck too so I know the eggy rut feeling. I always share my breakfast journeys on my instagram too. I have fallen for breakfast since I started experimenting. Have the best week!

    Ummm your partner doesn’t like coffee? Your profile picture is you drinking a latte! Haha, the things we put up with for love…I like the idea of the brekky-faux-pizza. I have some flat bread in my cupboard, so I might go see what I can whip up!

    • Reply Bec November 16, 2014 at 9:40 pm

      I know… I have to fufill my coffee love/obsession with my friends but that ain’t so bad at all!! Le me know how you go I’d love to know what you came up with.

  • Reply Glenda @ Healthy Stories November 16, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Both of these look really delicious. It’s too late for breakfast, but maybe for Sunday lunch!

    • Reply Bec November 16, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      Sunday brunch/lunch or maybe even breakfast for dinner??!

  • Reply Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella November 16, 2014 at 9:50 am

    I love Sunday morning brunches! We are having one now and it’s mainly because it is raining and we don’t really feel like going out. Does Jackson drink tea or does he bypass caffeinated drinks?

    • Reply Bec November 16, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      The rain was very doomy and gloomy so a SUnday brunch at home would have been perfect. NO TEA EITHER… I almost can’t deal! Oh well.. His loss and more for me 🙂
