If I am home during the morning and planning to spend the time doing some computing work or studies, I like to eat a home cooked, savoury breakfast that sets me up for the day. When I was younger growing up in Trinidad, a typical breakfast cooked my mum consisted of roti with some vegetables and perhaps meat or fish from the previous day’s dinner. She still has this routine and I enjoy my mother’s home made breakfast when I am visiting during vacation time. Preparing a “Trini” breakfast makes me feel nostalgic for my mum’s comfort food.
When I woke up this morning, I wanted to eat a cooked breakfast but I had no appropriate vegetables in the kitchen. While drinking my early morning coffee brew, I thought about what I had in the kitchen cupboard that could be used to make something quick and savoury. I found a tin of tuna and my eggs.
Here is my quick and easy recipe to make this savoury, protein rich and tasty breakfast dish.
I tin tuna (I usually buy tin tuna in olive oil)
1/2 onion, chopped finely
1 chilli pepper
sprinkle of salt (adjust to personal taste/ preference)
Here’s how I cook it step by step:-
This dish can be eaten on its own as a nutritious low carb breakfast or with slices of bread if you desire. I had mine with roti (similar to pitta bread or chapati)
I hope you get a chance to try it out.
