Breakfast Tacos

Ingredients

4 Corn taco shells
200g Cooked brown rice (optional)
100g Sweet corn, cooked
100g Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1tsp Rapeseed oil
Dash Semi-skimmed milk
6 Large organic eggs
100 g Baby spinach
1 Chopped fresh chili (optional)
200g Grated Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese, grated
1 Chopped or mashed avocado
100ml Plain yogurt or Sour cream
1 lime

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Half your cherry tomatoes. Wash your baby spinach. Mash or cut the avocado in small pieces and mix in a bowl with a squeeze of lime juice to prevent it from browning and to add a little zing to it.

Heat up the rapeseed oil in a non-stick pan. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and add a dash of milk if you like. Pour the eggs into the pan and let them set lightly at the bottom (2minutes), meanwhile, put the corn shells in the oven to warm up.

Start stirring the eggs forming ribbons and let cook for another 3-4 minutes until cooked but not dry.

Now build your tacos. Hold the taco shell on your left hand or use a taco stand. Then tear a few spinach leaves and put them at the bottom of the taco shell, spread a tablespoon of scrambled eggs on top followed by some avocado, sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, grated cheese and a little yogurt to finish it off!

Serve immediately so the tortilla doesn’t go soggy and eat as messily as you like…
