Vegetable and Egg Dinner

This meal is quick and easy to make, includes a boat load of nutrition, and a huge assortment of great flavors.  I’d recommend enjoying on a night when you’re looking for something on the lighter side. Side glass of vino is optional.

10 27 15_4 Last night, Ray and I got home from work and realized that our meal planning had gone awry.  We had forgotten to thaw the chicken we had planned on eating, which left us with options of a frozen pizza or eating out.  Since neither of those made sense with our schedule or health goals, I tossed together an assortment of vegetables and added some egg for protein.  In case you need a night with a light, easy-to-pull-together meal, check out the instructions below!

10 27 15_1 Ingredients (serves 2)

– 1 Red Pepper

– 1 Orange Pepper

– 1 Green Pepper

– 1 Yellow Onion

– 3 Cloves of Garlic

– 2 Eggs

– 1/4 Cup Mozzarella or Parmesan Cheese

10 27 15_5 Directions

1) Prep – Medium dice the peppers, small dice the garlic and onion, pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees (F)

2) In an oven safe skillet (if you have one), heat a small amount of oil on High until hot.  Add the onion and garlic, stirring occasionally ~5 minutes or until the onion is lightly browned and fragrant.

3) Add the peppers to the skillet, as well as salt and pepper to taste.  We decided to use seasoning salt instead of our usual sea salt for a little added flavor.  Stir occasionally another ~5-10 minutes or until peppers are softened.

4) Remove from heat and move vegetables to a microwave safe dish if you don’t have an oven-safe skillet.  Make two small bowls in the assortment of vegetables and crack the eggs into these divots.  Top with the cheese and put in the oven.  Leave in the oven 7-9 minutes (high altitude), or until your eggs are at your desired level of doneness.

5) Serve on two plates and enjoy!

10 27 15_3 This dish was incredibly delicious and so easy to make in a short amount of time.  I can absolutely see this becoming a regular part of our repertoire in the near future!
