Turkish Brunch

< 1 min read

Having some hard-boiled eggs on hand in the fridge will make our Turkish Brunch even easier to prepare. While watermelon has fewer carbohydrates than blueberries per 100g, be mindful of the quantity as it’s an easy fruit to overconsume.

  • 16 black olives
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved

Instructions
 

  • Bring a small pan of cold water to a boil (there should be enough liquid to cover all six eggs). Once boiling, gently ease the eggs into the water using a spoon. Cook eggs for 6½ minutes, drain, then plunge into cold water to cool and peel.
