Vegetables are low fat, low calorie foods with high nutritional value, and aside from being vitamin and mineral rich, contain all sorts of bonus cancer-fighting compounds – especially cruciferous vegetables, such as spinach, bok-choi, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, some of which we’re using in this recipe! Additionally, almond milk is a great dairy alternative if you’re lactose sensitive or intolerant. It’s lower in sugar and saturated fat than what the ‘moo cow’ makes, and yet contains plenty of calcium. I’ve partnered with Blue Diamond to create a selection of delicious healthy recipes containing their Almond Breeze milk, as they’re the only almond milk company to grow their own almonds, and they do it naturally in sun-drenched Californian orchards (n.b. must plan a lengthy visit to experience this for myself ;) !) There’s also a wholeness to the taste which I very much like, and a flavor that’s directly reminiscent of real almonds.

To recap, almonds are an exceptional source of mono-unsaturated fats (the likes of which have been associated with a lowered incidence of heart disease), are naturally rich in fiber & plant proteins, but are also very low in cholesterol and salt. Additionally, they’re bursting with a range of critical vitamins such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, potassium and magnesium!  Plus, they’re a delicious snack in and of themselves! Incorporating this into my recipe makes for a seriously tasty, natural dish fit for spring time :)

HOW TO?

1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees celcius.

2. Start by chopping all the vegetables into bite-sized pieces.

3. Pop the asparagus, peppers, leek, and the other veggies into a pan that’s greased with a spoon of olive oil, and toss them around for a few minutes. Transfer them into a baking dish.

4. Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a separate bowl, add c. 100ml of Blue Diamond Reduced Sugar Almond Breeze and whisk for c. 30 seconds (with a fork if you have no whisk) to introduce a little air into it.

5. Add the whisked mix into the veggie pan, stir it gently to allow the egg mix to permeate through to the bottom of the dish.

6. If you’re not lactose-intolerant, add a crumbling of goats cheese to the dish and let it all sit for circa 2-3 minutes so that the edges are ‘set’.

7. Pop the dish into the pre-heated oven for c. 10-15 minutes.

8. Remove the dish, loosen the edges with a knife, and overturn the dish onto a plate; garnish on top with some thyme (optional), rocket and olive oil, et voila!

Enjoy, Faya x
