Egg White Bhurji  

Egg White Bhurji is a healthy alternative to the traditional scrambled eggs. It's an ideal brunch option that’s quick to make and incredibly flavourful. Sauté onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and green chillies in a pan with a little oil. Add cumin seeds, turmeric, and red chilli powder. Once the vegetables are cooked, pour in whisked egg whites and stir continuously until the eggs are fully cooked and scrambled. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with parathas or whole wheat rotis. This protein-rich dish is perfect for a late-morning meal. 

Egg White Muffins  

Egg white muffins are a convenient and portable breakfast option. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a muffin tin. Whisk together egg whites, chopped vegetables (like spinach, bell peppers, and tomatoes), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the muffin tin, filling each cup about three-quarters full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are set and slightly golden. These egg white muffins can be made ahead and enjoyed throughout the day as a healthy snack or quick breakfast. 

Egg White Stir-Fry 

For a quick and healthy meal, try an egg white stir-fry. In a hot skillet or wok, cook your choice of vegetables (such as broccoli, snap peas, and carrots) with a bit of garlic and ginger. Once the vegetables are tender-crisp, add whisked egg whites to the skillet, stirring constantly to scramble. Season with soy sauce, a splash of sesame oil, and a sprinkle of green onions. Serve the stir-fry over brown rice or quinoa for a complete and satisfying meal. This dish is perfect for a light and nutritious Sunday lunch or dinner.  

Egg White Custard  

End your Sunday with an enjoyable Egg White Custard, a light and creamy dessert. Whisk egg whites with milk, a little sugar, and a dash of vanilla extract. Pour the mixture into ramekins and steam or bake in a water bath until set. Once cooled, refrigerate the custard for a few hours. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg or a few saffron strands before serving. This dessert is not only delicious but also a healthier alternative to traditional custards, making it a guilt-free indulgence.
