Healthy Morning Egg Recipes

10-Minute Baked Eggs With Mushroom and Spinach

The little ceramic vessels are perfect for housing eggs, organic meats, farm fresh goats or sheep cheese, and vegetables and then tossing in the oven. What emerges 10 minutes later is a perfectly cooked egg—whites soft but firm, yolk gloriously runny—surrounded by a tasty and filling supporting cast.


1 Tbsp olive oil
1  Small onion, chopped
2  Cups mushrooms, sliced
1⁄2 Bag frozen spinach, thawed
1 Green chilli (low-medium spice)
Salt and black pepper to taste
4 eggs

Toppings: Parsley, Coriander, Dill


Preheat the oven to 175°C

Heat the oil in a large skillet set over medium heat.

Add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes, until translucent.

Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned.

Stir in the spinach and chilli, and cook for a few minutes, until the spinach is heated through.

If any water from the spinach accumulates in the pan, carefully drain.

Season with salt and pepper.

Divide the mixture among 4 6-ounce oven-safe ramekins that have been lightly greased with butter.

Carefully crack an egg into each, making sure to keep the yolks intact.

Place the ramekins in a baking dish and bake until the whites are just set but the yolks are still runny, about 10 minutes.

Vegetarian Black Bean Omelet

Why shell out your hard-earned dollars for an overpriced gut bomb when you can make something better, healthier, and cheaper at home in 10 minutes flat?


150g Black beans, cooked and drained
Juice of 1 lime
1⁄4 tsp cumin
8 eggs
Chopped tomatoes
Chilli spices
Sliced avocado (optional)


Pulse the black beans, lime juice and cumin into a food processor until it has the consistency of refried beans, adding a bit of water to help if necessary.

Coat a small nonstick pan with olive oil and heat over medium heat.

Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat with a bit of salt and pepper.

Add the eggs to the pan, then use a spatula to stir and then lift the cooked egg on the bottom to allow raw egg to slide under.

When the eggs have all but set, spoon a quarter of the black bean mixture down the middle of the omelet.

Use the spatula to fold over a third of the egg to cover the mixture in the centre, then carefully slide the omelet onto a plate, using the spatula flip it over at the last second to form one fully rolled omelet.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make four omelettes. Garnish with topping of choice, salad and avocado slices.
