1. Spinach Scrambled EggsSpinach scrambled eggs

A combination of spinach and eggs is the perfect morning meal to start your day with. Eggs contain proteins, vitamins B and D, and unsaturated fats, which help the heart stay healthy. Spinach is a rich source of zinc, niacin, fibre, vitamin B6, protein, calcium, iron, and many other essential minerals.

 

Ingredients

 

  • A handful of spinach
  • 2-3 eggs
  • Cooking spray or 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup tomatoes (chopped into medium-sized pieces)
  • Salt and black pepper (according to taste)

 

How to cook

 

Heat a non-stick pan and glaze it with a thin layer of cooking spray or butter. Toss in the spinach to cook until it wilts and reduces in size. Whisk the eggs in a bowl with salt and pepper while the spinach cooks.

Now, add the tomatoes to the cooked spinach, and pour the beaten eggs on top. After 15-20 seconds, stir the mixture with a spatula until big clumps form and the eggs are fully cooked. You can now garnish the meal with your favourite herbs and eat it with buttered toast. You can even accompany it with your favourite milkshake, made in the Hestia Dual-VAC Power Mixer Blender, which guarantees high nutrition retention and powerful blending.

 

2. Moong Dal DosaMoong dal dosa

Dosas are a culinary staple in South India, and for good reason. Eating two dosas is more than enough for a healthy and fulfilling breakfast meal, and will hardly take 10 minutes to cook. The addition of moong dal to the dosa batter increases its nutritional profile as moong is rich in potassium, magnesium, iron, and copper – all of which are nutrients essential to staying healthy.

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 cup moong dal, cleaned and soaked overnight
  • ½ cup rice, cleaned and soaked for an hour
  • ¼ tsp asafoetida powder
  • 2-4 chopped green chillies
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander leaves

 

How to cook

 

Soak the dal and rice overnight. The next day, drain the water from the dal and rice, and grind them together in a Hestia IQ Blender Pro to quickly form a thick, coarse paste. Add chillies, salt, pepper (for taste), coriander and onions, and mix. The batter should now have a ribbon-like consistency.

Next, heat a pan or tawa, preferably a non-stick one, and splash some water. Immediately pour in a ladle of the batter until it covers the entire pan in a thin layer. When the edges of the dosa start to rise, put some oil on the sides and flip the dosa to cook until it comes off clean from the pan. Eat with your favourite chutney.
