Trying to reduce your carbohydrate intake?
Here’s a recipe that doesn’t rely on carbs but still gives plenty of nutrition and flavour. This variation on the classic eggs Florentine takes little preparation and makes a simple supper dish, or a weekend breakfast.
As well as a good mix of vitamins, there’s calcium from the spinach, cheese and crème fraiche, and filling protein from the eggs.
If you’d like a matching carb-free side dish, serve with cloud bread.
Serves 2 people.
4 large eggs
Large pack fresh spinach, or 8 ‘blocks’ of frozen spinach
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped (or 2 tsp ‘lazy’ garlic paste)
10 mushrooms, sliced
Butter and olive oil for frying
Small tub crème fraiche
Salt, pepper and ground nutmeg
Grated cheese for topping
I didn't dare suggest putting a low-carb recipe on toast, Mike - but glad I'm not alone in serving it that way! Tried it out as I was lucky enough to get some local eggs, and it was indeed very tasty.
I made this yesterday morning and it is delicious and only took 10 mins to make
I don't know if this would keep me going til lunch, on its own, so I would probably have it all on toast!!
not too worried about carbs but this looks delicious, and green veg are always a bonus at this time of year.
I'm always having spinach and mushroom omelette so this is a good way of changing it up a bit - thanks!
I have a similar thing for breakfast most days but sometimes sub kale or spring greens for the spinach. The mushrooms are a must though.
