i'm off to vegas eaarrrrrrly this morning for work and will be there until next friday - i'm going to a big trade show - NAB. i travel a decent amount for work - planning events. at some point i plan to write a post on travelling with food allergies. i've become a pro at it and want to share my tips with you!
i prepared this dish last weekend, knowing that i wouldnt be cooking/baking until i return from vegas. breakfast!!!!!! i am typically an energy bar type girl. my fav's are larabar's - all natural, gluten free, corn free and most dont contain diary - i eat them almost everyday. however, on the weekends when i have a bit more time i like to have substansial breakfasts - most of the time, that includes light and fluffy eggs. i've done a bit of experimenting with different milks and have found that unsweetened rice milk is great to use for scrambled eggs or omelettes.
- 2 eggs
- 3-4 tbsp unsweetened rice milk
- 1 tbsp sweet onion chopped
- 1 tbsp red pepper chopped
- 1-2 white mushrooms sliced
- 1 slice deli ham (i buy applegate farms nitrate, nitrite free from whole foods)
- fresh dill for for garnish
- kosher salt + pepper
- cooking spray or 1tsp olive oil
to begin heat a small fry pan and coat it with cooking spray or olive oil over medium heat. toss in onion, pepper, mushroom and ham (i reserve a few cubes of pepper and onion for garnish). cook to preferred doneness - i like them slightly browned. in a bowl crack both eggs and whisk together with a fork. stir in rice milk, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. pour eggs over cooked onion, pepper, mushroom and ham. allow egg to set, then carefully run a spatula along the sides on the fry pan, loosening the egg from the bottom. when the egg has set enough slide spatula underneath the entire omelette and then flip. i prefer this method to just folding it in half - i dont particularly like running eggs. cook for another few minutes, or until egg is cooked. fold in half and transfer to serving plate. garnish with uncooked pepper, onion and fresh dill.
this is a fabulous way to begin your morning - super healthy, fresh and full of protein. i enjoy mine with a glass of oj and sometimes (if i'm feeling adventurous) breakfast sausage. hope you all have a great weekend!
