Paleo Kedgeree aka Protein Packed Powerhouse Breakfast

paleo kedgeree

Paleo kedgeree sounds a bit strange, but let me explain. I used to eat first thing in the morning, but my breakfast habits have changed in recent years. Now I start my day with a pint of water, shortly followed by a strong freshly brewed coffee. This wakes me up nicely before I start having to deal with the day.

I usually get myself showered and dressed before eating, and occasionally I’ll forget to eat altogether. I used to wonder how a person could forget to eat – the idea simply baffled me pre-kids. When I do finally get round to my first meal, I like it to be packed with nutritional goodness. No cheerios for this lady! Sometimes I have boiled eggs, sometimes a banana smoothie with added extras such as spinach and seeds, and occasionally a full English (at it’s best with home made bacon).

This particular creation came about a few weeks ago when I got a craving for kedgeree, but didn’t want the faff of making rice. I basically chucked a load of stuff from the fridge into the wok, and crossed my fingers. The dish was so tasty I’ve made it numerous times since.

Apart from being yummy, it fuels me nicely until lunchtime and I can’t say that about many other breakfast dishes if I’m honest. It keeps well in the fridge too, so I’ve been making a bigger batch which means only having to cook it up twice a week. If a big brekkie isn’t your thing, I can highly recommend this as a lunchtime meal with half an avocado on the side 🙂


Ingredients (for two):
Tbsp oil or butter
Tbsp tamari (or soya sauce)
Tsp turmeric
Handful of broccoli
Handful of cabbage
Small red onion
4 cloves of garlic
Fillet of mackerel (tinned or smoked)
2 free range eggs
Large sprinkling of flaxseed
Large sprinkling of linseed

– finely chop the onions and garlic, and sautée in the oil/butter for a few mins over a high heat until soft

– add the broccoli, cabbage, tamari and turmeric mixing well. Reduce the heat so it’s med-low and cook for 5-10 minutes until the veg is cooked to your taste

– turn the heat back up to high and add the eggs and mackerel

– cook for a couple more mins until the eggs are done, and remove from the heat

– stir in the seeds, mixing well and serve hot or store in the fridge

Have you ever had paleo kedgeree?

  1. This sounds good, but I certainly couldn’t manage it for breakfast, just a psychological thing but I couldn’t imagine eating fish for breakfast, however a full English doesn’t disturb me!

  2. I go through phases with stuff. My youngest likes to nick half my muesli which kind of puts me off a bit as I know after he’s been at it it will be full of spit and snot! Ew!! 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness, I could never eat something this filling for breakfast. Even porridge is too filling for me 🙂 I normally just about manage coffee and chocolate biscuits and an apple an hour of so later. I love a good old fry-up, but it has to be eaten at least two or three hours after I got up. x Mel #TastyTuesdays

  4. I like kedgeree but I don’t know if I’d ever have it for breakfast. I find that 50% fruit muesli and a banana keeps me going through the morning! You are very healthy though – puts me to shame really!
