I don’t know about you but by lunchtime I just want a meal I can easily make and know I’ll enjoy. One that Adventure Girl won’t fuss over and is full of veg in case I don’t have the energy to make a really nutritious dinner. My stir-fried veg with cheesy egg fits the bill and is really flexible depending upon what I’ve got available.
The beauty about this dish is that I can pre-chop the veg while Adventure Girl is occupied/sleeping earlier in the day and cook it one-handed with her on my hip.
This is what I do for Adventure Girl and me:
Dice some/all of the following:
- ½ Tomato
- 1 Zucchini
- 2 leaves Kale/Silverbeet
- 1 large Mushroom
- 1 small sprig Spring onions
- Carrot (frozen and pre-diced)
- Peas (frozen)
- (As said though, this is really flexible depending upon what you’ve got available so use what you’ve got!)
On a medium heat add these to a fry pan with some olive oil or coconut oil (if using coconut oil, buy extra virgin cold pressed organic unrefined coconut oil) and stir-fry them until they reach your preferred level of crunchiness. I cook mine until the zucchini is slightly golden. While these are cooking, chop up some tasty cheese and mix this with 2 eggs. Add this to the pan and cook until the egg is fully cooked.
I then dish it all up on the one plate, separate it in to hers and mine and add salt and pepper to what I’m eating.
Enjoy! It takes about 10 minutes all up + eating time
