This kitchen of mine isn’t always producing a culinary experiment or creative new meal. Some days, donning the Chef’s hat and Apron doesn’t fit into the agenda and a “quick & easy” fix comes to the rescue!
Yes, I actually have a Chef’s hat. Sadly, it rarely sees the light of day.
Just because you don’t have time for a new gourmet recipe doesn’t mean you have to skip out on a healthy meal. One of my go-to eats in this situation is Breakfast-For-Dinner; Tuesday night I added a few twists:
With an entire bag of Fresh tomatoes from my Sister-in-Law’s garden, this fruit is popping into many of my dishes as of late. Not a problem, since I finally adore them in all of their Lycopene glory! See that deep red? That only comes from some home-grown TLC.
Green Chile & Tomato Egg Sandwich
2 slices whole-wheat bread
2 eggs, scrambled (“scramble” carefully to keep a shape easier to put on a sandwich)
4 slices of fresh tomato
2 tbsp 505 Green Chile sauce (or canned green chiles)
Cilantro, Salt, Pepper
Scramble the eggs, adding cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Toast bread as desired, and top with tomato slices, egg mixture and green chile sauce to taste.
Carbs: Whole wheat bread
Vitamins A & C, Lycopene: Tomatoes
What does those green chiles lend? According to The Green Chile Farm website, they contain “as much vitamin C as 6 oranges” and certainly aren’t lacking a host of other vitamins and minerals.
What’s your go-to healthy quick-fix dinner?
