I always surprise my friends with my Venezuelan breakfast: duck eggs, avocado, hot sauce and a heavy grating of cacao.
The idea raises eyebrows, but everyone agrees it’s delicious.
On the farm I would have the black beans on the side, in England it is my cacao bread.
For the black beans:
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 onions, diced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red peppers, seeds removed, finely chopped
300g soaked and briefly boiled black beans
About 300ml chicken stock
2-3 tbsp. 100% cacao, grated. Suggestion, Venezuelan Black 100% Caranero Cacao
Cacao, roasted pepper and chilli harissa (see my recipe)
12 eggs, I always try to find duck eggs
12 slices brown bread
2 or 3 ripe avocados
4 tbsp. grated 100% cacao Suggestion, Colombian San Agustin
