We all love an easy, healthy, fast to create meal! I made this one between a dance class and a work meeting. Used up all the vegetables that I had left in the fridge.
Know your nutrients
Eggs are jam packed with protein, they keep you fuller for longer and are such a great 'go to' when I am lost for what to make the family to eat. Yes, Iron is found in lean meat cuts (and fatty ones...but) a lot of people who don't eat meat worry that they are not getting enough iron, but if you think about it...where do the cows get their iron from? GREEN GRASS!...so where can we get our iron directly from? GREEN VEG!
- 8 eggs
- Pinch of Salt
- Pinch of Pepper
- 1 Red Capsicum
- 1 Zucchini
- 4 x Mushrooms
- 2 Handfuls Baby Spinach
- 1 Cup chopped broccolli
- 2 Cups Cheese (Feta, Edam, Tasty or mix 1 cup of each, even mozarella)
Line your baking dish (approx 15 x 30cm) with baking paper, coconut oil or butter, and turn your oven on to 160 degrees celsius.
With a fork whisk the eggs, salt, pepper and cheese together.
Chop up your other vegetables (or if hiding from children, whiz them in the food processor) and then pop them on a skillet, or pan for 4 minutes to head, and wilt the baby spinach leaves.
Add vegetables to the cheese and egg mix, mix well.
Pour onto the baking dish and place into the oven for 30 -35 mins. (You can top with some more cheese before placing in the oven if you wish).
Serve with a green salad and a little chipotle sauce ;-)
