Brunch brings together the best of breakfast and lunch. After all, that’s where its name comes from: brunch = breakfast + lunch. The perfect brunch is a tasty mixture of sweet and savoury food, while not overdoing the baked goods, simple sugars or fatty foods such as sausages and bacon.
How to rustle up a healthy brunch in a flash? Here are four great recipes on toast that you can wash down with a fresh fruit juice (and perhaps a little sweet guilty pleasure on the side!).
Avocado, blue cheese and sesame and chia seeds. Don’t forget to drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Serve with some crusty wholemeal bread and you’ll be in heaven.
Camembert cheese and smoked salmon. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and add some fresh rocket leaves for an irresistible final touch.
Whole asparagus omelette. Blanch the asparagus before making the omelette, cooked with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Top off with sliced tomato.
Hummus and seasonal vegetables. Aubergine, courgette, carrot, leeks and mushrooms work wonders with hummus spread onto a slice of toasted wholemeal bread. You can’t get much healthier!
