Poached Egg with Bulgar Wheat Breakfast Hash

This morning I woke with a real craving for eggs and carbs!!

Normally this would mean egg on toast, I normally only eat bread baked by Julie Brealy as she makes me the most amazing sourdough rye bread which my gut can tolerate much better than commercial breads.   But we have just returned from our andalusian retreat and there has been no baking so far at The Body Retreat.  So no bread for me.

Serves 1
  • 30gms Dry Bulgar Wheat
  • 2 Asparagus Spears, chopped
  • 1 Scallion, chopped
  • 1/2 Avocado, chopped
  • Small Handful Baby Spinach, chopped
  • 1 large Free Range Egg
  • Chilli Flakes, Fresh Ground Black Pepper, Olive Oil

So my crab craving was satisfied this morning by using bulgar wheat. Buglar wheat or cracked wheat is a good source of dietary fibre and plant protein.  While bulgur wheat is definitely a step up from refined carbohydrates it’s still best to have in moderation.

You could substitute Quinoa for the bulgar wheat here and have a great dish if you want to go gluten free.

To Make Egg and Bulgar Wheat Breakfast Breakfast Hash

  1.  Cook the bulgar wheat until aldente.
  2. Cook the asparagus and then add with the other vegetables to the cooked bulgar wheat and mix.
  3. Poach your egg and then simply load up your plate with the bulgar wheat mix and top with your egg.
  4. Sprinkle with chilli flakes, black pepper and olive oil
  5. Enjoy
