This makes a very satisfying, tasty and nutritious breakfast. The egg/chia mixture has a consistency similar to couscous when cooked.

Ingredients per person

1 egg

1 Tablespoon of chia seeds – preferably white

half a small onion

a handful of baby spinach

a splash of milk – about a dessertspoon


Whisk the egg and milk and soak the chia seeds in the mixture for 15 minutes

Chop the onion finely and gently fry in a non stick frypan with a little butter or oil until soft and slightly brown.

Add the egg/chia seed/ milk mixture to the pan and stir until set.

Add the baby spinach leaves and stir the mixture until leaves are slightly wilted.

Season to taste, (great with a little sea salt and ground black pepper), serve and enjoy.
