Breakfast / Brinner Pitas With A Bit Of A Med Twist

September 6, 2013

Everybody knows I love *frambled* eggs – my take on scrambled OK. I chow two eggs a day & when I’m on a serious health kick I sometimes go straight for egg whites. But whether you choose to yolk it or not – eggs, *frambled* to be exact are a ‘Winner Winner Chicken Dinner’ type of meal. I’m not a huge breakfast fan, I find my egg eating takes place in the afternoons or evenings. So despite this tasty pita having the word Breakfast in the title, I usually chow this for Brinner -yes, I said Brinner – the breakfast for dinner meal… A dollop of creamy humus quickly turns boring old eggs into something rather exciting, quick & easy. So whether you nibble on this for breakfast, brunch or brinner just be sure to add masses of humus & a spritz or two of fresh lime to the mix!


The Breakfast / Brinner Med Style Pita

Large handful of Rosa tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) dried chilli flakes

2 tbsp (30ml) olive oil

1 tsp (5 ml) dried oregano

Maldon salt & freshly ground black pepper

4 pita breads, brushed with olive oil

1 tub *Mediterranean Delicacies humus*, to serve

Cucumber slices & finely chopped cucumber, to serve

*Frambled* or scrambled eggs, to serve

Red onion, thinly sliced, to serve

Feta, crumbled, to serve

Fresh mint, to serve

1. Place the tomatoes in an ovenproof dish with the garlic, chilli, olive oil, oregano & season well Maldon salt & freshly ground black pepper. Roast in a preheated 200C oven for 15 minutes, until softened. Heat a non-stick frying pan & fry the pita for 2 minutes on each side until golden & slightly crisp. To serve; place the warm pita breads onto individual serving plates or a large wooden board. Spread each pita with some humus, add cucumber slices, top with *frambled* eggs, red onion, feta, fresh mint & chopped cucumber. Add a good dollop of extra humus to each pita, spritz with fresh lime & a drizzle of olive oil just before serving.

*Add rocket, basil or flat leaf parsley for even more herby flavour*
