Breakfast diary of A City Girl

I am a foodie. I live to eat because of which I also live to exercise (not out of choice though) So I will give you 5 breakfast essentials that are fast, healthy, filling, delicious and guilt free.

Today’s special:¬†2 Minute Basil Pesto Chicken Open Sandwich¬†

The trick here is to make the pesto over the weekend, so all you have to do is put your breakfast together on a busy weekday working morning.

PESTO RECIPE

2 cup Basil leaves only ( pls remove stalk)

6 cloves garlic

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup pine nuts

1/2 cup pecorino / parmesan cheese

1 Smoked Chicken

Salt to taste

Blend Basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts and cheese whilst adding oil at regular intervals. The paste should be grainy so be sure not to over blend. Taste and add salt accordingly.

Toast a slice of wholewheat bread ( or any other of your choice ) put a generous layer of pesto. Add slices of smoked chicken ( you can replace this with any other cold cut of your choice) and garnish with some cheese.

All that’s left to do ? Dive-in.
