Sauté the spinach, chopped up celery and bite-size chunks of asparagus
Add the eggs and scramble
Top with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, smother with salsa!
Serve over a waffle or two!
Here’s an easy recipe for busy mornings… pre-make individual serving egg dishes! Here’s what we used, per person:
1/4 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup black beans
1 chopped up sausage (optional)
Mix everything together in individual oven-safe dishes
Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes
(or until egg has cooked through)
Refrigerate if you’re going to eat them in the newt couple days, freeze if longer.
To reheat, place cold dishes in oven
Reheat at 250F for 30-60 minutes (cover with foil to prevent additional browning)
Now you have time to go for a run or get the kids out the door while your breakfast cooks!
Or simply microwave if you’re in a hurry!
Our newest idea: Mindless Monday! What’s deal with that? Well… we’ll be the first to admit that some of our recipes are a little time consuming. So we thought we’d highlight some of the easier, quicker, less time-intensive options. This also means that the recipes are open to interpretation. Think of Monday recipes like the Pirate Code “they’re more like guidelines.”
Saute the spinach and onions in an oven proof pan until spinach is wilted and onions are translucent
Whisk the eggs (8) together with some milk (1/2 cup), salt and pepper
Add sun-dried tomatoes, and chopped up sausage to the spinach in the pan, if you want
Pour the egg mixture over all of it
Pick up the spinach with your spatula to let the egg seep under
Cook on medium until egg is about half way done
Layer on as much goat cheese as you want (or not!)
Pop into the preheated oven (400F) for about 15 minutes
Done when the egg is cooked through!
The world’s most ridiculous conversation took place while I was making this…
Peter asks what I’m making.I say “bread pudding with the left over cubed bread.” He eyes the bacon I’m frying and asks “with bacon?” “Well, yeah, bacon makes everything better!” I reply. “Even dessert?” he asks skeptically. “Dessert??? This has bacon, cheese, spinach and sun-sried tomatoes. I didn’t know where was such a thing as sweet bread pudding” I reply. Pause. “I didn’t know there was such a thing as savory bread pudding!” LOL
1 loaf bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 (5-ounce) package spinach leaves
1 jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained well
1/2 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
(we threw in a mixture of all the cheeses we had on hand… gruyere, parmesan and a bit of asiago too)
3 cups milk
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
4 strips bacon, fried
Another Esalen success! This recipe turned out so well we literally sat around the table talking about how good it was, while we were eating it. Yeah. It’s that good! (Thanks for taking pictures Laurie!)
1 medium onion, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds fresh spinach (or 2 frozen packages) stemmed and chopped
1 1/2 cups crumbled feta
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
1/4 cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 bunch parsley, finely chopped
1/2 pound filo dough
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 pound smoked salmon
1 lb of organic ground chicken thigh meat
½ lb of fresh organic spinach
2 slices of organic, whole wheat, sprouted bread
2 TBSP of butter
½ cup of bone or chicken stock
Found this on the Food Network website–the original recipe called for asparagus, we didn’t have any so we just doubled the amount of cheese that the recipe called for! We figured that would make up for the lack of asparagus!
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
3/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 lightly packed cups baby spinach leaves
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Bring the broth to a simmer in a pot.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over low heat, cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute.
Add wine and simmer, stirring constantly, until absorbed, about 1 minute.
Add 3/4 cup of the hot broth, the salt and a few grinds of fresh pepper and simmer.
Stir constantly, until broth is absorbed.
Continue simmering and adding hot broth, about 3/4 cup at a time, stirring constantly and making sure the broth is absorbed before adding more.
Continue this process until rice is almost tender and creamy-looking, about 18 minutes.
Add the spinach and peas and cook until the spinach is wilted.
Add the asparagus and cook just until the vegetables are hot.
Stir in the Parmesan and serve.
