Instant Chilli Cheese Garlic Bread!

All of you by now will know that, when I get a craving for something, there is no stopping me. I listen to my body when wanting certain foods. But have to control the naughty cravings! 😉 For example I find that if I’m craving oranges or something orange flavoured, I’m lacking in Vitamin C or a cold could be pending. I got in tune with my body a lot at the time I was pregnant. You feel free to eat almost whatever you want and I felt my body was literally communicating with me via cravings.

I would picture, say a passion fruit and could already yearn for it on my palette, and that actually did happen. My husband and I were driving back from my friends place and I was about 7 months pregnant. I told him to stop the car at the parade of shops and see if he could buy me some passion fruit from the green grocers. The best he could do was a sour hitting can of sparkling passion fruit juice. He had bought me a six pack knowing that I would want more! He knows me too well! Lol!

Brunch for one

Eggs are my weakness! I would eat them all the time if I could. Especially soft eggs where you are able to soak up the creamy egg yolk with some delicious bread. So, though very simple I wanted to share one of my favourite egg brunch dishes with you all.

In this dish the tomato sauce seeps into the light airy bubbles of the ciabatta with a garlic buttery kick plus the richness of the yolk once it is cut in to!
A little piece of heaven to help you along in your day x

INGREDIENTS

1 garlic clove crushed
150g tomato passata with onion
½ tbsp olive oil
Sprinkling of Chilli flakes & oregano
Salt to taste

A slice of ciabatta with garlic butter*

METHOD

• Heat the oil with the garlic and chilli flakes, pour in the passata and sprinkle in the oregano and salt. Simmer on a low flame for 7-10 minutes
