Breakfast for Champions

Happy Sunday beautiful people.

I have a pretty busy day ahead of me, so I thought I would fuel up to get me through the morning.

I wanted to show you that you can whip up a delicious breaky with little ingredients and little time.
Breakfast doesn’t have to consist of cereal, oats or fruit..Veggies are just as good 🙂

So here you go, all this was found in my fridge and pantry….

BE CREATIVE

* Some home grown silverbeet
* Some tuna
* Zucchini
* Some carrot
* Sesame seeds
* Some Halloumi
* coconut oil
* Salt and Pepper
* A dash of good quality soy sauce

So basically I just added all this into a pan, fried up my halloumi and filled my belly with some goodness.

There is no real recipe involved, just use what you have and add some love.

Happy Sunday 🙂

INGREDIENTS

For Labnah Yoghurt Cheese Balls:

500g (17.5oz) Greek-style yoghurt
1 large piece of clean chux, muslin or cheesecloth

METHOD
To make the cheese:
• Fold the cheesecloth so that it is 2-3 single layers thick. Place the cloth over a bowl. Mix yoghurt in the tub and spoon into the middle of the cheese cloth. Gather the edges up tightly and tie into a knot on the top.
• Using a couple of bamboo skewers, or a chopstick, hang the yoghurt ball over a plastic container and place in the fridge. Allow the whey (milky water) to drip into the container for 12 – 36 hours. The longer you allow it to hang the denser the cheese will become. Pour off the whey (you can keep it for use in smoothies or cake batters instead of water) after the first 12 or so hours.
Enjoy!
