People often ask me what my favourite dish is, and I usually avoid the question by answering, “Oh, there are so many…” but to be honest, I do have favourites, but I’m embarrassed to say what they are because I’m going to sound so boring. My favourite meals are brunches, and they are mostly vegetarian, without a lot of flavour and while I do love my sugar, I am lucky that I also love fresh fruit and veggies in every way: raw, steamed, cooked, stir fried, in salads and in a wrap!
I made this green breakfast the other day and it was heavenly. By blanching the veggies, they still stayed crisp and preparing them takes only about 4 minutes. I practically drank the sauce, it was so delicious, it is by far the BEST TAHINI SAUCE EVER. I made just enough sauce for this breakfast because if I had made anymore I wouldn’t have been able to stop myself from drinking it! For anyone who is watching their weight, it’s a low fat super-healthy meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
1 bunch asparagus
4 silverbeet leaves, green part only
2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
1/4cup edamame beans
1 bunch broccolini
½ tablespoon sesame oil
The best Tahini sauce EVER
3 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons water
7 medium dates
¼ cup water
In a hand held blender mix all tahini ingredients together until smooth.
Blanch asparagus, broccoli and broccolini. Drain and dry.
Heat sesame oil in a shallow frying pan and add asparagus, silverbeet, broccoli and broccolini.
Sir for 2 minutes, add spinach and stir for a further two minutes.

Cook eggs any way you like (I poached mine), put on top of greens and serve with Tahini sauce. Garnish with nuts and seeds.
