Breakfast Bowl

easy breakfast with quail eggs, tomatoes,cucumber topped cheesy toast with Papaya and Yoghurt Juice

I felt like doing two bowls today, anyone whose here for the first time, Monday has a theme, my happy bowls, where I plate up meals with links to recipes that are already here. It’s also the day I write fewer words because it’s Monday and I’m saving my energy for the week ahead of. Enjoy!

let’s begin with the Breakfast bowl, 15 minutes is all it takes to plate up..

Quail eggs boiled exactly 3-4 minutes. if you are a fan of runny yolks, 2.5 minutes should do. Pealing these eggs should be done with extra care. Toasted or not bread with cheese, tomatoes and cucumber then seasoned with salt and pepper.

Complete this with a refreshing Papaya juice and yoghurt drink.

How to-add three to four tablespoons of yoghurt to the Papaya pulp, pinch of salt, sugar to taste and blitz and your breakfast is done.

Lunch Bowl

let’s move on to lunch..

Followed by a quick kankung stir fry done in five minutes. let me show you how,

Easy Kangkung in Garlic and Soya sauce

what you will need

A bunch of kankung ( more if serving a large family)

Finely sliced Garlic and Onions

Chilli flecks(optional)

2 tablespoons of Soya sauce

3 tablespoons of oil


Wash the kankung and pick out the leaves, stems you want to cook, chop if that’s the way you like it.

Using medium heat, Pour in the Soya sauce with the Garlic and Onion slices, cook for a minute or so.

Add oil and turn in the kankung, cook with the remaining heat once you turn off the fire. the idea is to just wilt them.

More intriguing bowls. Yay! I don't think I've ever tried kankung, I'll have to see if I can find some around here...
