All you need are quality real foods and a few tricks in the kitchen for making amazing food in little time. Here’s a perfect example: a gourmet looking and tasting dish using only basic ingredients, barely any cooking skills, and as little as 15 minutes. Let’s do it!

Homemade, soaked and fermented sourdough bread can be a nutritious addition to some people’s diets, and the same goes with tortillas made with the long traditional method. But let’s face it: most bread, tortillas and wraps we buy today are nutrition-less, over-processed grain and gluten products that cause many of us digestive distress, slowly leading to disease.
All you need for this recipe is your leftover dinner and a few eggs. That’s it! Once you’ve made your first leftovers omelette, you will be addicted to the simplicity and deliciousness of this meal.
When you think of sushi, fish comes to mind. Salmon and tuna are the most popular; even teriyaki chicken. However, just like the wonderfully versatile egg muffins, homemade sushi can be made with almost any meat and veg, so the combinations are endless. You can use almost ANY leftover foods in them. Just think of the nori sheet (seaweed) like a tortilla or pita – something to wrap your delicious food in!
gg muffins never get boring. Since the ingredients are determined by what leftovers you have in your fridge, they can be different every time you make them. It is fun discovering new combinations of ingredients that taste amazing in your egg muffins, and you can use almost ANY leftover foods in them.
We are not big pancake eaters, as few recipes call for all whole foods, and it seems a lot of trouble for not much flavour. However, this is our absolute favourite pancake recipe, given to us by Pippa, a Thermomix representative. The flavour is so good, that we never even think to cover the pancakes with maple syrup or honey. They are good enough without any topping, so would also make a great on-the-go meal or snack!
