THERE isn’t much you can do to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day this Sunday as the country is still in lockdown; and some are still sceptical about ordering takeaways.

If you’re among the people who would still rather prepare your own meals, why not treat your mom, and maybe even the family to this breakfast.

You can make it special by adding a hand-written message to it and serving mom at a neatly laid out table or even better, in bed.

She will love you [even more] for it.

Bon appetite!


Makes 2 large tacos


1 cup baby button mushrooms, sliced in half

1 cup white button mushrooms, sliced

½ cup black beans, rinsed & drained

½ cup corn, fresh or frozen

1 tsp Mexican / Taco spice

4 eggs

1 Tbsp butter

½ avocado, sliced

? red onion, finely sliced

½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 small fresh chilli, finely sliced

2 large flour tortillas

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Fresh lime wedges, for serving


Fry mushrooms in a drizzle of olive oil until golden brown. Season with salt, pepper and taco spice.

Add black beans and corn and stir together until hot and flavours have mixed. Set aside and keep warm.

Scramble eggs in simmering butter until done to your liking. Season. Keep warm.

Prep the rest of your taco toppings.

Toast your flour tortillas over a gas burner using tongs until charred on the edges and warm throughout. If you do not have a gas hob toast the tortillas in a dry pan until warm.

Assemble the tacos by layering with the scrambled eggs, mushroom, bean and corn mix, fresh avocado, tomatoes, red onion and chilli. Squeeze over some lime juice and serve.
