Immunity Building BREAKFAST Dishes
by
Oberoi MasterChef’s

By Neelima Agrawal

Testing times throw up new opportunities. Locked in and nowhere to go, and the most happening place in the house is the kitchen. The Master Chefs at the Oberoi Hotels & Resorts and Trident Hotels are missing their patrons, and as a good will gesture have shared a treasure trove of recipes for breakfast, Indian meals, Western dishes and the delicious beverages. All recipes are authentic Oberoi dishes, easy to cook and just what the Doctor ordered to boost that immune system. We are going to share each of the segments daily, for easy consumption of content.

Of course, we are washing our hands endlessly, but the Oberoi Hotels & Resorts is asking you to match their standards of cleanliness and hygiene, that are in keeping with World Health Organization guidelines, to mitigate the risks associated with the coronavirus. For your information, don’t head out to Oberoi’s just yet, as most of the staff is working from home and practicing social distancing. Only the essential staff is in residence to take care of the few guests at some of their hotels.

Spinach and Egg baked casserole

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tbs coconut oil plus extra for greasing baking dish

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cups tightly packed spinach
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced salt and pepper to taste

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 Deg C and grease a baking dish with coconut oil.
  • Heat coconut oil in a frying pan and add onions. Cook onions until translucent. Add the spinach to the frying pan and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
  • In a large bowl add the eggs and stir together until combined. Then add the garlic, salt and pepper. Add the coconut oil, onion, and spinach mixture once cooled. If the mixture is too hot it will begin to cook the eggs. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.
  • Bake for 25-30 mins, until eggs are cooked in the middle and lightly browned on top. Note: the bake will rise while cooking, this is fine and it will return to normal after taken out of the oven and cooled.

Nutritional benefits:

  • Eggs contain zinc and selenium, which are important minerals that help boost the immune system.
  • If cholesterol is a problem in the healthy diet, make this dish with egg whites.
  • Spinach is rich in vitamin C. It also packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which may increase the infection-fighting ability of our immune systems.

Remove from heat and allow to slightly cool. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 hours
  • Stir oatmeal thoroughly until uniform in texture. Spoon half of the oatmeal into a glass, and top with half of the sliced strawberries, yogurt, and banana slices. Repeat with the remaining oatmeal, strawberries,yogurt, and banana.

Benefits:

  • ALMOND MILK – Almond milk contains vitamins A, D and E, so using it every day would be a great daily boost for your body’s immune system. Even better, it’s also rich in vitamin B and iron which both increase muscle strength and healing.
  • STRAWBERY – Strawberries are great for your immune system because they’re a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants. It’s crucial for a lot of enzymes that are part of the immune system.
  • BANANA – Rich in potassium and magnesium and as a super source of vitamin B-6, bananas aid your immune system, help form red blood cells, ensure a well-functioning nervous system, and assist protein metabolism.
