Five Breakfast Ideas For The Weekend
Breakfast is labelled as “the most important meal of the day” so why not make it a special one this weekend? We’ve rounded up some of the best, most indulgent and leisurely breakfast ideas you must try at home this weekend. With classic recipes from Japan to the United Kingdom, there’s something for everyone. Pssst… these healthy recipes work just as well for lunch and dinner, too!
While we do love buttermilk pancakes, the type that really tugs at our heartstrings are Japanese pancakes, a.k.a okonomiyaki.
Okonomi means “how you want it” and this speciality from Osaka has been adapted many fold as the dish travelled across continents. It’s a comfort food, which strikes a great balance of savoury, sweet, smoky flavours.
It can easily be made at home with ingredients readily available at Foodhall. Add texture by serving sliced sausages on the side.
This tea-time classic fits the bill at breakfast as well, when you’re looking for a small baked treat to start the day right. These light and airy breads serve as the perfect backdrop for preserves, clotted cream, berries and so much more. Kimberly Parsons, CEO & Founder of Retreat Cafe in London has shared her favourite recipe for this quintessential Brit treat.
But if you are looking for a citrusy flavoured scone, you could also try Amrita Rana’s recipe for Lemon Rosemary Scones.
Veganism has been gaining much popularity in India recently, but regardless of whether you’re vegan or not, you’re bound to enjoy Mira Manek’s beautiful bowl of saffron-tinged quinoa porridge. The London-based healthy Indian chef and blogger uses the superfood, quinoa instead of regular oats, and a generous splash of almond milk (or shall we say ‘mylk’), sweet dates and cashews, to ensure that this breakfast is bursting with delicious goodness.
It would be truly tragic if eggs were not mentioned in a breakfast article. In Israel, shakshuka is synonymous with breakfast and is best served with freshly baked bread to mop up the tomato sauce. When cooked perfectly, the yolks are still runny, adding that much-needed richness to counter the tangy sauce.
Since we are on the topic of eggs, this Mexican breakfast staple definitely deserves mention. With plenty of rich tomato sauce, local cheese and lime, huevos rancheros is perfect after a night of partying!
Now that you have so many easy recipes to choose from, what will you be making this weekend?
