This is a seriously awesome savoury breakfast: a Turkish style flatbread topped with my favourite Coyo dairy free, sugar free coconut yogurt infused with garlic and fresh herbs, and a crispy bottomed fried egg, harissa, dukkah and some extra roast pistachios for good measure. The only breakfast I’ll give up my chocolate pancakes for!
My alternative Turkish flatbread recipe is a thick and fluffy jumbo pan bread which you could easily switch up and sweeten with some vanilla, cinnamon and stevia and top it off with some Coyo of choice, maybe cherry, complimented with some fresh cherries, grated dark chocolate and toasted coconut flakes.
Rather than sundried tomato pesto I opted for some spicy harissa. I just love the combination of creamy yogurt with lots of spice. The gooey drippy crispy bottomed fried egg, once I popped that yolk, brought the whole thing together. Such a beautiful amalgamation of flavours and textures. The thick fluffy bread like base soaked up any of the drippy bright yellow egg yolk that made any attempt to escape.

I’m Shel but some people call me “Peachy”…I’m the food loving, fitness fanatic, blogger behind Peachy Palate, a website which is now my hub for all the paleo, keto and grain free recipes I create, hoping to inspire people to think outside the box, eating whole foods that truly nourish. Fueled by a desire to improve my own health I love to create sweet and savoury recipes, sharing them with the world ensuring no one need feel deprived regardless of their dietary restrictions or preferences. Living in Wicklow, Ireland, when not dreaming up recipes I’m lifting with the men folk in my local gym, tapped into social media or out on the road delivering, merchandising and being a super duper brand ambassador for a local health food company.
My relationship with food wasn’t always so bright, in fact it wasn’t at all harmonious for quite sometime. Having overcome a decade of eating disorders I’m in the best place I’ve ever been. I’m happy, healthy, confident and I now enjoy every nourishing mouthful, giving my body what it needs.
