BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE

Hey guys, long time no chat. To be honest, I’ve been completely overwhelmed with life. I’ve been transitioning my kids to preschool and it’s been a lot of running around getting everything they need to succeed. I think I’m finally ready. Kudos to all the moms who successfully got their kids back to school a few weeks back, it’s no easy feat!

One thing that always calms my nerves is baking. And there is nothing like a crumble on a cool crisp day. In fact, crumble is the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert in the cooler months, perfect for the upcoming season. True story…stated by me 🙂

 

So why did I choose blueberries? To be honest, I had a pint in my fridge and if I didn’t use it, it would’ve spoiled. But no food wastage here folks, take your leftover fruit and make a crumble dessert out of it! Yay!

This blueberry crisp was incredibly easy to put together:

Ingredients:

2-3 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup tbsp Brown sugar
1 cup Large flake oats
1/3 cup Flour
1/4 cup Walnuts chopped
1/3 cup Unsalted butter cubed, cold
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Place blueberries in baking pan.
In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, cold cubed butter and brown sugar. Mix together with hands, forming crumb topping.
Place this crumb mixture overtop of the blueberries.
Bake for 35 minutes (until golden brown)
Serve warm and top with vanilla ice cream or as is!
Enjoy!

I hope you’ll try this recipe out and let me know how it turns out! My kids absolutely loved this crumble for breakfast which was a total mom win for me! As always, let me know if you try out this recipe by tagging me @kashmirifoodie #kashmirifoodie, I would love to see your beautifully delicious creations!

Instant Pot Boiled Eggs

In my latest quest of being healthier, I am trying to eat two eggs for breakfast every morning. Protein is key to feeling fuller and that assists me in not snacking mindlessly until lunch time. It has worked so far and I will continue to do this. I save time by using the instant pot and it creates a healthy breakfast…this is a win win situation ya’ll! So if you’re struggling with mid-morning snacking (or just want to learn how to use your IP!), try this boiled egg recipe. I hope it helps you achieve your health goals!

Recipe:
2 boiled eggs (or as many as you need to make)

Method:

1. Add in one cup water to the instant pot.
2. Place the trivet in the pot
3. Place your eggs on the trivet
4. Place the lid on the instant pot and seal the vent (place the vent in the middle)
5. Select the manual button and adjust/decrease time to to 3 minutes
6. Set it and forget it! This is the perfect time to get ready for work or make a coffee
7. Once the instant pot beeps, it’s done!
8. Using a spatula, quick release the seal (be careful, this will be hot and steamy!)
9. Open the lid and remove boiled eggs
10. Place in bowl of cold/ice water for 5 or so minutes
11. Peel and enjoy the perfectly boiled eggs!

Here I’ve made a breakfast salad of greens, topped with cucumbers, apricots, the boiled eggs and blueberries. Feel free to add in your own favourites!
