Shakshuka – Tomato & Chickpea Baked Eggs

Biffen's Kitchen - Shakshuka – Tomato & Chickpea Baked Eggs

You can knock up this recipe in under 30 minutes with minimal effort (perfect for hangovers). This is what makes it the ideal breakfast or brunch dish. Most of the ingredients can be easily kept in your cupboard, ready for any weekend you feel the taste for it. Traditional shakshuka originally came from North Africa, but it is quite popular in the Middle East, and you’ll find variations of it in Palestine, Israel and Turkey (Menemen). Shakshuka literally means “a mixture” of leftover vegetables and spices – a poor person dish which is now a bougie brunch option found in Balham for £13 a dish before you even add your chorizo. For a vegetarian option, simply replace the chorizo with another vegetable; courgette, aubergine, sweet potato just to name a few and add more smoked paprika.

Forest Berry Sweet Omelette

Biffen's Kitchen - Forest Berry Sweet Omelette

You might not think this would work, but trust me, the sweetness and creaminess of the fillings work perfectly with the warm omelette breakfast. Ditch the standard cheese and mushroom omelette and let your sweet tooth have its time. Here are some of my other healthy suggestions (always with a thick yoghurt filling) – Banana, honey and pistachio – Nutella, peanut butter & banana – Apple and cinnamon – Chia seeds and passion fruit – Banana, desiccated coconut and almond flakes omelette


Biffen's Kitchen - Avo-No-Cado

At the Biffen’s Kitchen food van, I have replaced the smashed avocado with a more local and tastier alternative, which I call Smashed Avo-No-Cardo! The smashed beanos are simply smashed broad beans, sweet garden peas, lime, salt, pepper and vegan mayo. Blitz and enjoy.

Kaiserschmarrn is merely a thick, fluffy pancake, roughly chopped, coated in icing sugar and served with local jams such as plum or apple. Kaiserschmarrn is an Austrian ski food classic which you cannot miss! I first had them when I was skiing In Kaprun in 2010 and then again when I was doing my ski season in St Anton, where I would make them for my guests as a dessert treat.
