  • 100g smoked salmon chopped into cube size
  • 3-4 small chopped mushrooms
  • 100g eggplant chopped into cubes

METHOD

  1. Chop up the smoked salmon, mushrooms, eggplant, capsicum, cherry tomatoes and parsley and mint.

  2. Place a medium size saucepan, approximately 30 cm circumference, over medium heat.

  3. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the saucepan and let it heat for 30 seconds or so.

  4. Add the capsicum and eggplant, and half the salt and saute until they are soft and browned slightly.

  5. Add mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and smoked salmon to the pan and mix through all the ingredients. Cook until the mushrooms and tomatoes are browned and the tomatoes have released their moisture. Place on low heat.

  6. Add the egg whites and eggs, and mix them through until they are all scrambled. Remove from heat after the eggs have cooked. Usually about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  7. Add salt, pepper, chilli (optional), lemon juice and the parsley and mix through.

  8. Place the mixture on a plate. Garnish with mint and additional spices if you like.

  9. Enjoy with a piece of sprouted bread (gluten free) or soy linseed bread, some avocado and baby spinach, topped with a drizzle of olive oil, for breakfast or lunch!
