Chia Seed Scramble

If you are bored of the usual scrambled eggs, then you will love this for something different.  Chia seeds add so much goodness into your meal and together with the fibre from the vegetables, you will be left feeling full and satisfied for many hours.  This goes very nicely with a slice of Spinach loaf (recipe on website)

4 eggs
1 brown onion, chopped
2 teaspoons dairy / almond milk
¼ cup chopped red and yellow capsicum
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 large handful of baby spinach leaves
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Chopped coriander leaves to garnish
2 garlic cloves, minced

Whisk the eggs and almond milk together in a bowl. Drop in the chia seeds and let it sit for about 15 minutes – the mixture should thicken up as the chia seeds expand.

Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat and sauté the garlic and onion until translucent. Add the capsicum and cook for about 3 minutes. Pour in the egg mixture and stir with a fork until it is almost set. Add the spinach and cook for about 1 minute or until the leaves have wilted. Top with the coriander and serve.
