recipe : what i eat for lunch almost every day

let’s be real: very few people have time to think long and hard about every meal they cook. oh, and then, of course, cook it. i try to cook most of my meals in-house so that i eat the hoards of vegetables that i keep in the fridge, which sometimes leaves my options pretty limited. i find myself saying the same thing to myself nearing every breakfast and lunch:

*opens fridge* “hm…gots me some vegetables…and 6 dozen eggs…and some butter.”

awesome. I could make a huge omelet? instead, I usually opt for something a little less overwhelming for my belly.

-my lunch-


i always keep at least this many on hand, for emergencies

whatever vegetables you have on hand

[garlic, onion, leeks, zucchini/squash, tomatoes, beans, carrots, potatoes*]

– butter [i use raw butter, the taste is unforgettable]

– free-range egg

– cheese [feta, goat cheese, cheddar, parmesan…your choice] [optional]

– toast [also optional]

– cholula hot sauce [optional, but take my advice on this one…]

*If using potatoes, make sure they are boiled so that they are almost thoroughly soft before sauteeing

Do it!

i love you, lady Cholula

– slice your vegetables into whatever size chunks you enjoy to eat

– heat about a tablespoon of butter in frying pan, add garlic and onion

– add heartier vegetables first, such as potatoes, carrots, squash;

cook until the color increases and things start to smell awesome

– add softer veggies like tomatoes and beans

– stir the veggies and move them to one side of the frying pan to continue simmering

– put another dollop of butter in the pan, crack egg directly onto melted butter

– cook egg until it is suitable for your tastes [i like my yolk extra runny, like a salad dressing almost]

– move all vegetables to plate [put on top of toast if you want, like an open-faced sandwich]

– top with cheese, hot sauce, and egg

– eat it up!

  1. lolz, erik & i make this concoction a lot–pretty much e’ry day! usually spinach, asparagus, and/or red bell pepper are the veggies… also i like using sarracha or red pepper flakes to add that kick!
