An incredible Aussie trend I love to warm myself with, on chilli days.
Sometimes I even make it as a quick nourishing easy dinner.
I love to add as many veggies as I can, and It’s also a great solution for veggie-leftovers in the fridge.
For 6 people or 4 hungry birds
1 cup of roots of your choice, sliced
(onion, garlic, pumpkin, zucchini, carrot, beetroot, sweet potato)
1 cup of soft veggies of your choice, sliced
(mushrooms, tomatoes, snow pees etc.)
1 cup of greens of your choice, chopped roughly
(kale, spinach, bok-choi etc.)
A handful of your favourite herbs
(coriander, parsley, dill, basil, rosemary etc.)
your preferred spice mix -
Salt & Peper to taste
6 Eggs (one for each)
5% cheese such as low fat Feta or low fat Halumi, or any vegan cheese (Optional)
First stage, can be made ahead -
Heat a large Saucepan
(non stick proffered, so you don't have to use any oil).
If you have to use oil, use a spray and spray a thin layer of a plant based oil on the saucepan.
Add the vegetables by this order-
greens and herbs
Stir every now and again, and cover between adding more veggies.
If needed, add a bit of water to the pan and cover to create a steaming process (another great way to avoid oil use)
Add spices according to the seasoning you chose, salt and pepper.
Second stage -
If you made the first stage a day before, heat the veggies in a covered saucepan over a low heat.
If you chose to add cheese, add it and let it melt a bit.
you can also just add it fresh on the plate.
The eggs can be made in a few variations -
Either break them on top of the veggies like in a Shakshuka recipe,
You can make the eggs separately, any style you like -
poached or boiled are recommended.
For serving -
Put the veggies nicely in a large bowl, add the eggs on top, you can decorate with fresh greens, black sesame or nigella seeds and pepitas.
Serve with a good nice bread, and healthy spreads and dips.
