1. THE SHAKSHUKA
Baked shakshuka with feta and home-made labneh
Shakshuka will forever be the ‘breakfast-for-dinner’ dish, but serving it at brunch time is highly recommended. Also a good dish to throw some greens into (if you have any to use up), as well beans or chickpeas if you want to bulk it up. Skip the labneh if you can’t be bothered – the feta will add enough creaminess.
2. THE OMELET
Spring green skillet-baked eggs
A joyous way to eat a pile of greens that doesn’t feel overly virtuous, these baked eggs also form a great base for a fridge raid. Simply throw in any veg you’ve got to hand.

3. THE CHEESY BRUNCH
Welsh rarebit on toast with corn and leeks
Sure, it’s just a version of cheese on toast, but the addition of a silky cheese sauce makes a rarebit feel that bit more special. Leave out the leeks and corn if you don’t have them – this will still be good.
4. THE BEANS
Smoky maple-espresso baked beans
You could crack open a can of baked beans, but once see how delicious they are homemade (as well as how easy they are), you’ll never look at a can again. Tweak the level of spice, and omit the bacon if you don’t have any – this recipe is pretty hardy.
5. THE FLAPJACKS
These flapjacks are sweetened with fresh banana, and no refined sugar, so you can almost feel virtuous about them!
