A Recipe for a Great Year?

Happy New Year! I give you...eggs!

Eggs are probably one of the best hangover killing foods, but sometimes you want something a little different, not so conventional. 2011 is going to be an unconventional year, so here's something I like to do with my eggy wheggies:


2 eggs

1/2 shallot diced or 1/4 cup onion (I like red & green)

1 cup spinach

1/2 cup cooked lentils (you can cook these ahead of time or snag them precooked--I like Trader Joe's precooked beans)

1 TBSP nut butter (any will do, whatever you like)

2 TBSP white wine vinegar (you can also use rice wine or apple cider vin if you have those)

Olive oil to cook with (usually 2-3 TBSP)

Heat up the oil over medium heat and toss in the shallots & spinach until the shallots are tender and the spinach is wilted. Throw in the lentils and mix well. Spoon in the nut butter and the vinegar, and stir well until the nut butter melts. Beat eggs together in a separate bowl and then throw them into the mix. Stir until everything is well-mixed and the eggs are fully cooked (obviously, because raw eggs are gross and potentially dangerous).

Throw the mixture in a bowl, salt & pepper to taste. Eat it. Feel like a superhero. You're welcome.

You can also look into using pasteurized eggs. So you could eat the eggs raw or sunny side up or any other way you like without having to worry about any potential risks. I don't know if you are aware of pasteurized eggs but they go through a special warm water bath that eliminates any risks of salmonella. I'm guessing you already tried this recipe yesterday, but maybe for your other long nights or egg-based recipes, you might want to look into pasteurized eggs.

Thanks for the heads-up, Eddie! I'll have to check out pasteurized ones :)
