Southwest Farro Salad

Learn More About This Recipe +

Summer is all about salads, but they don't always have to be made of lettuce. This one uses farro, which is a wonderful grain alternative to quinoa or couscous. Its chewy texture holds up well when mixed in with black beans, avocado, crunchy peppers and salty feta. You can make it as spicy as you want by adding a Thai chili (which I do), or you can substitute in a little less heat with some jalapeno instead. Serve the salad alongside some peppery arugula, then add an egg to turn the side into a meal that will carry you through lunch or dinner.

Lime and White Chocolate Macaroons

Perfect for Canada Day, these chewy cookies have a hit of lime smoothed out with a white chocolate. Macaroons (not to be confused with French macrons) are a great way to use up leftover egg whites and really quite easy to make. You can customize them however you like by adding chocolate chips, nuts, or finely chopped dried fruit. The lime in this recipe adds a great hit of citrus flavour that melds in nicely with the vanilla notes from the white chocolate. You'll want to make them again and again!

Who says you have to have the usual for a breakfast sandwich? Fill these spicy, cheesy waffles with eggs, proscuitto, tomatoes, lettuce and mayo spiced with a hit of sriacha. Really, you could change it up to suit your own tastes-arugula and ham, bacon with spinach, even a little extra cheese. Either way these will become a part of your breakfast rotation. The waffles can be made ahead and tucked away in the freezer for a weekend when you want something special. If you don't have harissa (you can find the spice blend in specialty food shops), substitute chili powder!

Who says your breakfast sandwich has to be made with bread? Try waffles.

Why not trade in your grainy tortilla for a delicate one made from eggs? These are great if you are going paleo, are gluten intolerant, or just looking for a change of pace. The wraps are relatively small and delicate so they require a gentle touch, but it's fun to have your eggs on the outside or your wrap instead of as a filling. It's important to use a smaller pan here, and one that is preferably non stick or the eggs will adhere to the pan, and that won't be fun at all. Fill them however you would like!

Use your eggs as the wrap!

The Egg Farmer's Conundrum - Do Ethics Equal Choice?

BC Egg Board's response to the cage-free question:

I recently read Ann Hui’s extensive exploration of some of the issues of the egg industry (The cage-free egg trend: Is it just a shell game?) in the Globe and Mail last week and was impressed by her fair and well balanced presentation.

The article discusses the cage or no cage debate among industry stakeholders. Hui says that scientific research is either driven by health and safety of the bird or the natural environment of the bird.

Breakfast with no clean up? We're so in. Bake up your eggs in neat little packages by using a tasty bread roll instead of a dish. Customize it by adding your favourite cheese, bacon, sausage, chopped peppers, or sliced tomatoes and you've got a full meal. I kept it simple in this recipe by just adding a bit of Cheddar, but you can dress it up as fancy as you want.

No clean up with this recipe!
