Last night I was going to roast a pork tenderloin, but it was still too frozen. I had to think quick – we didn’t have any frozen or boxed meals and I knew we’d be starving if we had to wait for takeout, so I got creative.
We had some sweet potatoes, onions, a bag of 10 minute farro from Traders Joes, and some asparagus, so I roasted up the veggies and boiled the farro.
I try to keep a balanced plate most of the time, which means about 1/4- 1/3 carbohydrates, 1/4- 1/3 protein, and 1/2 veggies (with some form of fat mixed in as well).
But what does a girl do when she realizes her plate is missing protein and fat?
Just crack an egg on it! (Well actually, you should probably cook it first).
I am a firm believe that you can enjoy a fried egg on just about anything, from toast in the morning, to salads and even meat.
Give it a try, there is nothing like a big runny yolk to add tons of great flavor and nutrients to just about any meal – except maybe ice cream…but I am open to trying it.
Do you have any creative egg recipes?
Do you like eggs for dinner?
