Green Eggs

Hey foodies, I know, I’ve been away for a while but now I’m back πŸ™‚

Green is my favourite colour so it would only make sense if some of my food is also green, right? Anyway, this is a simple breakfast recipe that could easily serve as light lunch or for brunch.

Ingredients:

Handful of broccoli florets

Handful of spring onions chopped

Handful of dhania finely chopped

1 tablespoon dried oregano

4 eggs lightly beaten

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying

Start by stir frying the broccoli and onions. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil, then pour in the greens.

Toss the veggies around to ensure they cook. Do this for about 5 minutes. The broccoli should be green and have a crunch.

Season with salt and pepper.

Stir in the chopped dhania and dried oregano into the eggs.

Next pour in the egg mixture.

Let the egg cook to your liking. We like ours well done.

Once the top is cooked, we get to the hard part. For this, you may need an extra pair of hands. Luckily hubby was around so he helped out.

Broccoli

Powerpuff girls are responsible for making us hate broccoli even without having tasted it. Well fortunately, I decided to give it a try and I loved it.

I made some to accompany the pasta alla marinara.

Normally I stir fry broccoli with carrots but sadly I didn’t have any in the house 😦 Oh well we still had to eat.

Ingredients:

Broccoli florets

1 onion chopped

Salt

2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

The broccoli florets

In a pan saute the onions and season with salt.

Sizzle sizzle

Once the onions are tender, add in the broccoli florets.

Green with envy

Cover for a few minutes then start the stir. Continue till the green is more pronounced. The broccoli should be firm to bite but cooked through.

Beautiful

Verdict:

Delicious, even without the carrots
