I need ideas for quick winter breakfasts, porridge is getting boring… what do YOU have for breakfast?
Tonight’s dinner is about to go into the crock pot, we are starting to feel a bit stodgy with all these two course meals, so tonight we are going for a light meal, and skipping dessert… giving our body a break and time to cleanse before the new week of meals begins… I will have to keep the heavy-ness of meals in mind when planning them. Once this is in the crock pot I’m going to hit the gym gear (we have our own set up at home) and then sit in the sunshine with our three dogs, and the kids. We have snow forecast next week so the hour of sunshine is well received each winter morning!
1 head of broccoli chopped up
1 large leek sliced up thin
1 potato peeled and 1x1cm squares
1 clove garlic crushed
3 cups vegetable stock
salt & pepper
add just before serving
75ml lite cream/or milk
Fry all the vegetables with salt pepper and garlic, and olive oil, until browned and tender. Do the harder stuff first, like the broccoli stems, potato then leek then broccoli florets.
