Recipe: Jo's Favourite low carb brunch
This is my go-to weekend brunch recipe. It feels luxurious and decadent - a real treat. The Thai-spiked eggs make it a little bit different so it's packed full of flavour, and it's so easy to make. You really can knock this up in a matter of minutes. I know you're going to love this as much as I do.
Oh, and add a glass of bubbles for an extra special brunch!
Serves 2 (or 1 if you're really hungry!)
Less than 10 Minutes
Less than 10 minutes
Less than 5g of carbs per serving
- 1 Seriously Low carb Roll
- 1 medium ripe avocado
- 1 tsp lime juice
- Black pepper
- 120g smoked salmon
- 3 large free range eggs
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp ginger puree
- 1/2 tsp garlic puree
- 1/2 tsp lemongrass puree
- 1 tsp diced red chilli
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- Slice your roll in half and toast.
- Place the avocado flesh into a bowl with the lime juice and a good couple of grinds of fresh black pepper. Mash them together. It doesn't have to be perfect - few lumps of avocado to add texture is nice.
- Add the butter to a non-stick pan on a medium heat and lightly fry the chilli until it's just softened a little.
- Add the ginger puree, garlic puree and lemongrass puree, stir to combine, then break the 3 eggs directly into the pan.
- Allow the eggs to cook for just a few seconds without stirring them - the whites will start to cook. After 20-30 seconds, stir your eggs, breaking the yolks. You'll get the perfect yellow, creamy eggs!
- Once the eggs are almost cooked, add the coriander leaves, stir well and then remove from the heat.
- To assemble, place one half of the roll on each plate. Spread the mashed avocado across the roll halves. Top with smoked salmon, then the Thai-spiked eggs. Serve immediately.
- If you add a glass of bubbles, don't forget to add a couple of grams of carbs too!
Hints and tips
All those ingredients? I know it seems like it's a lot of ingredients, but actually, all the purees for the spice you can buy and keep in the fridge so they are there for the next time you make brunch, or to add flavour to your other low carb meals
Adding Bubbles? Make sure you choose something extra dry or Brut for the lowest carb count. Prosecco and champagne usually comes in around 3g of carbs per glass, but the drier the better!
Play with the flavour! These are my favourite flavours - I love the way the Thai-inspired flavours cut through the oily smoked salmon and creamy avocado. Why not play with your own favourite flavours?
