Every Tuesday we get a big box of produce delivered through our CSA program. It’s enough to completely fill our fridge and then some, so every Monday I clear out whatever is left from the previous week and fry it up for breakfast. This is a quick and simple meal that is ever changing, and really doesn’t require a recipe. Here are a few steps for any newbies in the kitchen, but those of you who already have been cooking for awhile, just go for it and see what delicious combinations you come up with!
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 sweet onion, peeled and diced
1 apple, washed and diced
Any vegetables you have left in your fridge, washed and chopped to uniform size
Some form of protein (a meal is not a meal without protein the size of your palm!). For example: two fried eggs, nitrate free/sugar free farmer’s sausage, chorizo sausage, etc. Experiment with whatever you have in your fridge.
1) Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and melt coconut oil in it.
2) Fry your onion and whatever meat you have chosen until cooked through.
3) Add in your vegetables, starting with the hardest vegetables (yam or potato), and then adding the softer ones a few minutes later so they don’t get soggy.
4) Combine and fry until cooked through. Simple and delicious!
Some of my favourite combinations are:
Chorizo, yam, leek, apple, bell peppers, and kale.
Farmer’s sausage, potato, apple, bell peppers, swiss chard, and sauerkraut.
Ground pork, zucchini, peppers, fennel, and apple.
