If you’re not into sweet breakfasts, this savory one inspired by Middle Eastern classics is perfect for you! It’s healthy, full of vegetables, and simply delicious.


  • Bread of your choice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Persian cucumbers
  • 2 radishes 
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup of tahini
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 2-4 tablespoons of water
  • 1 minced clove of garlic
  • Parsley to garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. First, prepare the eggs any way you like. You can hard boil, soft boil, fry, or do whatever you please.
  2. Chop up the cucumbers, radishes, tomato, and bell pepper into a fine dice. Try to make each ingredient that same size, put them into a bowl, and season them lightly with salt and pepper.
  3.  Then, combine the tahini, lemon juice, water, and garlic into a medium-sized bowl. Mix until it’s thinned out but thick enough to use as a dip and a dressing. If you need to thin it more, use more water. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. 
  4. To assemble, put the salad on the plate with the eggs and bread. Drizzle the tahini sauce all over the plate and save some on the side to dip as well. 
  5. Tear up some leaves of parsley and put the over the top as well, and enjoy!
