Grain free breakfast

BED breakfast

The best grain free breakfast that comes to my mind is Egg and vegetables. I try to vary the preparations so that my folks look forward to eating them. The usual proportions are 1 egg with 2 cups of vegetables. It is not rocket science, just a little creativity, which leads to good looking and tasting breakfast. Today I had made this stuffed Red bell pepper with stir fried Broccoli.


Egg – 1 no.

Red Bell pepper  – 1 no.

Green peas (steamed) – 2 tbsp

Green beans (finely chopped)- 2 tbsp

Onion (Finely chopped) – 1 tbsp

Salt – to taste

Crushed Black pepper – to taste

Dried Basil – 1 pinch

Broccoli florets – 1 cup, steamed till the colour changes to bright green

Garlic – 2 cloves, crushed

Olive oil – 3 tsp


  1. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a pan and add crushed garlic. Fry the garlic till it loses its rawness.
  2. Add steamed broccoli and stir fry on high heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Add salt and crushed black pepper, toss and remove from heat. Keep aside. I could have added a thick coconut cream sauce in it to make it tastier, but chose not to do that today and keep it rather simple!!!
  4. Cut the top of Red bell pepper, to make a bowl out f it.
  5. Remove seeds, sprinkle salt and microwave for 2 minutes.
  6. Chop the discarded portion of bell pepper and keep aside.
  7. Beat egg till fluffy and add little salt. Keep aside.
  8. Add the remaining 1 tsp oil in the same pan.
  9. Saute onion in it till it turns pink.
  10. Add steamed green peas, beans and chopped bell pepper. add little salt, Black pepper and basil.
  11. Saute till the veggies are done.
  12. Fill the veggies in the bell pepper bowl and pour the beaten egg into it.
  13. Cook in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or till the egg is fully cooked. You can also cook this in the steamer or oven, as you like it……
  14. Serve the stuffed bell pepper with Broccoli on the side. An all veggie smoothie could be a good drink to serve along, for a filling breakfast.

Many people do not like to cook in the microwave, but I do that once in a while as it saves lot of time. you may chose to use your oven instead!!!!
