Eggs are an incredible food. They offer so many benefits and can be used in so many recipes to create wonderful things. But let’s say you weren’t feeling up to making a cake or cookies or really anything that required so many different ingredients. We didn’t either today.
So we created a vegetable egg hash! It’s similar to how an omelet is made, only you never commit to making it one. This is honestly a great choice if you’re looking for something with a lot of wholesome vegetables and a little bit of egg. It’s especially a great recipe if you need to clean out some of those veggies that have been there for a few days.
In our house, this tends to happen often where we load up on vegetables and then realize we bought just a few too many. We’re not complaining by any means. We welcome the challenge to come up with creative ways to ensure we use up those brightly colored foods.
Now, this is a recipe that you can add any amount and any kind of vegetable just so long as you are adding in double the amount to the egg. You’ll want to chop the veggies into smaller pieces in order to allow them to cook thoroughly enough through. You can also add a dash of salt and some seasonings of choice (ours always being Italian, garlic powder, and some dried parsley).
Either way, this is a quick and delicious meal that can be tailored to any taste bud!
- 1 Large Egg
- Green Bell Pepper
- Orange Bell Pepper
- Red Bell Pepper
- Sweet Onion
- Plum Tomato
- Italian Seasoning
- Sea Salt
- Garlic Powder
- Dried Parsley
- Non-stick Spray
Spray a frying pan with some non-stick spray, covering bottom of pan. Crack your egg and drop into the pan, breaking apart the yolk but do not mix the whites and yolk together. Think omelet preparation.
Add all of your vegetables in and turn the burner on to medium heat. Allow the egg to cook through (to the point where there is no liquid) then fold over like an omelet, but instead of keeping it folded, chop everything up! Break it apart to mix everything together like a tossed salad. Allow the vegetables to cook through (if using onion, the onion will be see-through).
Once done, serve hot and enjoy! 😀
