Red currant brie quiche

Brie and red berries make a good pair. I used red currant marmalade.  The brie and the marmalade made it sweet and salty. I had sweet prosecco with this.

Reduced carbohydrates, instead of pastry case,  I used egg omelette to line the mould.

Ingredients

5 eggs

Cream

Red currant marmalade

Brie

Butter

Salt and black pepper

Having raw eggs may cause health problems. To eat healthier I tried this recipe.

I found only hard boiled eggs in my fridge and cooked beetroots,  milk etc. I decided to start the day with a salted,  spicy smoothie.

Ingredients

3 hard boiled eggs

1 small cooked beetroot 2-3 cm in diameter

150 ml skimmed milk

1 tsp mustard

1 tsp kimchi paste

1 tbsp tomato paste

Salt and ground black pepper

Method

Put everything together in your magic bullet smoothie maker. Blend until it makes a smooth fluid. Season and use.

Enjoy!

Chicken piccata in savoury bacon and gherkin sauce


Ingredients

Chicken breast fillets

Flour to dust

Salt and black pepper

Oil to fry

Diced bacon

Chopped onion

Flour

Tomato paste

Chicken bouillon plus 200 ml water

Diced gherkins

Mixed herbs

Salt and black pepper

Method

On a little oil fry diced bacon.

When it turns a little red,  add chopped onion and stir fry until it becomes translucent. Add one or two teaspoons of flour and fry. Add one tablespoon tomato purée and one chicken stock cube and 200 ml warm water. Boil. Add mixed herbs like marjoram,  thyme, Provence herbs,  salt and black pepper. Simmer on medium temperature.

In the meantime cut chicken breast in two thin fillets.  Season with salt and black pepper. Dust with flour and fry on one tablespoon of oil for two minutes on both sides. Add to the sauce and simmer for ten minutes under cover.

Season with hot sauce if you like hot flavours. Add chopped gherkins. Finish with one tablespoon of yoghurt or sour cream. Bring to the boil and serve.

The chicken will be render,  the sauce a little hot and sour from the gherkins.

I like it,  I hope you will love it too.

Tesco lamb liver & bacon

I tried the TESCO liver & bacon. I prepared as it was written on the package.

I served on linguini.

What did I get?

The lliver was nice tender.

The sauce was terribly flavourless.

I’m sorry to say that it was terribly flavourless,  but that’s the truth.

I missed not only salt and pepper,  but flavours. I ddidn’t find traces of bacon flavour as well. It was rather sweet than flavoured.

Next time I will try to give flavours to this,  I have ideas.

Chicken breast a’la milanese with black pepper sauce

To continue chicken main recipes for my protein diet,  I combined the breaded chicken with black pepper sauce.

The sauce I prepared is a Lidl from the shelf product. I thought I would try it with chicken breast. The sauce had a fairly nice flavour,  I didn’t have to add anything. It was mildly pungent and made the chicken’s flavour better.

Good choice.

I had green leaf salad: iceberg  with baby Spinach and a glass of gewurtztraminer.
