Great Breakfast / Snack / Lunch idea all in one!

I borrowed the brilliant book The Detox Kitchen Bible (by Lucy Simpson & Rob Hobson) from Haywards Heath Library on Friday and have been thumbing through all the recipes.

It’s a brilliant book as it’s simple and easy to follow and each recipe tells you exactly what nutrients are in it and what it’s good for. Here’s one I made last night and have now packed up for my lunch today to have with a green salad.


(My Tip…soften the vegetable in some oil in a frying pan and not in the over and as I found they didn’t soften as well in the oven, but if you like a bit of crunch then follow the recipe.  I also cooked mine in muffin cases as my tin wasn’t very non-stick!)

I think you can add any vegetables you like to these and for some extra protein and a bit of added flavour I put some Chorizo in and some tomatoes. You could add some mushrooms, spinach and bacon , smoked salmon, for a breakfast version and you can add some seeds for added vitamins and minerals.  You can also make these a sweet version by using berries instead!

Do let me know if you try these and what versions you’ve made, you can email me at and I’ll share your recipes with everyone.
