Quick Meals and a Weekend Brunch

I thought I’d take this Saturday morning to share some of the quick meals, along with my brunch today, which was decidedly un-quick.

Egg Foo Yung is one of my favorite applications for a quick, often meatless, meal. Eggs are fairly cheap, and these omelette/pancake things tend to use pre-cooked veggies, so they’re good leftover vehicles. This one used leftover roast chicken, collard greens, and some sliced onion. Just fry up the onion, shred the chicken, chop the greens, and stir the whole thing into 2-3 beaten eggs with a dash of tamari. Pour into a pan and cook covered for 3-5 minutes, flip and cook until browned.

Stir-fries are another great quick meal. This one is ground beef with carrots, onions, curry powder, cabbage, and coconut milk. Brown the beef, add the onions and carrots, add the curry and coconut milk, and then the cabbage and cook covered until the cabbage is tender. Delicious and quick, and the fat from the coconut milk means I can use a little less meat and still have a filling, nutritious meal.

This is my brunch from today. Definitely not fast, but so worth it. It’s Saturday, after all. I fried up some slices of sweet potato in ghee and bacon grease, and served it with a scramble of eggs, kale, and bacon. All washed down with some green tea. Yum!
