Vegetable Omelette

The 4 worst things about being an Egg :

You only get hard once

You only get laid once

You only get eaten once

The only one who sits on your face is your mother !

 

I found this quotes printed in a cap/hat somewhere, have no idea who is the original author.

 

Talk about an egg, I like to have a hot breakfast, something that can make quickly, savory and delicious and good-looking as well. How cool is that ?

Less than 15 minutes including preparation until finished, if you move fast. If you are doing slow motion than will be different.

And now let’s make this

 

 

Serve with toasted bread if you prefer.

The plate was empty less than 15 minutes too !

Eggs Vegetable Curry

Eggs vegetable curry

 

Eggs Vegetable Curry recipe by Ninik Becker.

As usual my recipe this time is also very simple but nutritious as well. The cooking process is very easy and quick and the main ingredient can be replaced by meat, poultry, fish, or vegetables . Of course, the cooking time will be vary depending on what the main ingredient used.

My technique here is to fry boiled eggs with a little oil just until slightly brown to make different texture and color before mix into the curry. Skip the frying process if you prefer a plain boiled eggs. Boil the eggs with medium doneness so the egg yolk just cooked and still soft in the center and less worry about being overcooked later.

Curry is excellent if eaten with rice together with additional side dishes according to family’s favorite.

The measurements in this recipe is basic, and as we know that everyone has different tastes, so I can share the recipe but I can not share the taste. Season less or more depending on your desired taste.

Salmon Omelette

Published March 17, 2015 by Ninik Becker

Omelette with chopped salmon, cherry tomato, spring onion, raisin and chili powder toppings, serve with raisin roll bread

Salmon Omelette recipe by Ninik Becker.

Simple healthy breakfast, make in short time and hassle free. Flexible to be replaced with any food ingredient that you have in your kitchen.

The raisin bread in the picture which I baked before, I enjoyed with this omelette as well.

I baked the bread as experiment, without the exact measurement (I’ve forgotten). It was basic bread ingredients like flour, sugar, milk, butter, eggs, dried yeast and raisin and a pinch of safe food coloring to add little color.

Raisin bread rolls with two colors, white anf orange circle form with the raisin in between.

 

Have you ever eaten something straight from the pan ? I did !

When I was home alone and hungry and lazy to wash the dishes, I took a small skillet, throw something edible into it, cook a few minutes and eat with gusto. It’s done.

Ingredients : for one

  • about a palm-size salmon, roughly chopped
  • quarter of fresh lemon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp low-fat milk
  • a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 stalks spring onion, the green only, chopped
  • 1 tbsp raisin
  • a dash of extra hot chili powder (optional)
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • olive oil

What I did :

In a bowl, I whisk 2 eggs, season with salt, freshly cracked black pepper, and extra hot chili powder for kick. Throw cherry tomatoes and spring onion in. Mix well.

Heat a small non stick pan, drizzle olive oil on it and brown the chopped salmon. Squeeze quarter of fresh lemon over the salmon. Shake the pan.

Pour the egg mixture into the half-cooked salmon, lower the heat and let the egg cook until set to my desired doneness. I like a bit crispy on the edges and soft in the middle.

And then remove from the heat. Enjoy while still warm, torn a little bread, and of course while occasionally sipping hot coffee from my favorite mug.

Guten Appetit !

Salami Egg Pancake

Salami Egg Pancake

Salami egg pancake

Simple breakfast could be as yummy as this. Only need a little movement in the kitchen and you will have a moist savory pancake.

In Germany is called Eierpfannkuchen which mean egg pancake. The amount of flour you use is less than the amount of eggs.

The sweet version, additional complementary like jam, Nuttela, clear honey or sweet syrup to go with.

I like savory things so I added some ingredients to the egg. Salami could be replace with bacon, ham or your other favorite. Omit the spring onion and chilli if you don’t like it.

 

Ingredients : 1 serving

  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 stalk spring onion, sliced
  • 4 slices beef salami
  • 2 tbsp grated cheese (I used Gouda)
  • 2 red bird-eye chillies, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter

In a bowl, put together flour+spring onion+grated cheese+chillies+salt and pepper.

Pour beaten egg in, little at time while stirring  until the flour dissolve, no more lumps

Heat butter in a non-stick pan. Place beef salami sliced on the pan. Pour the egg mixture over the salami, usually the pancake will expand in the edges.

Flip over and cook the other side until golden. Transfer onto serving plate.
