Want a quick, nutritious, satisfying, delicious lunch but don’t have the time to fuss? Here’s where a little eight-inch skillet comes into play to solve your problem.
What you need:
Some leftover something – this is Judie-A-Roni, but a leftover potato, some rice???
An egg – or two or three – depending on how hungry you are
Some fruit – not shown – pick what you like, but be sure to eat some fruit!
Put the little non-stick skillet on a burner on medium high heat until it is hot, drop in a bit of coconut oil, and heat up the starchy part. When it is hot, turn the burner down to “egg”, and plop in your egg(s), or whatever bit of protein you are using, and let it set on the bottom. When it is almost done, spray a bit of water on the top of the whole thing, and put a lid on it to steam cook the top of the egg.
I like a runny yolk, which makes a bit of “sauce”, but not everyone does, so cook to your own taste. No need to flip the egg; it should cook sufficiently from the steam.
Alternate: Scramble the egg and mix it in for “Fried Rice”, tossing in bits of leftover veggies.
As you might imagine, there are a bazillion different combinations of ingredients to quickly make this filling meal, using up bits of leftovers that might otherwise feed the disposer.
The picture shows this meal still in the frying pan because I wanted to show you this nifty little pan. The brand is called Aeternum, and I found it hanging on a peg at the grocery store. I’m saving up to get another one because it is just great. I use these little pans to create meals like this and to just reheat food instead of using a microwave.
If you see one in the store, put back a piece of meat from your cart and grab it. You’ll be so pleased at its utility.
And, no, this isn’t a paid advertisement. I don’t even know who makes it other than the name I mention above – Aeternum.
