Spinach & Bean Egg Toasts with Red Pepper Flakes

This was a spontaneous idea inspired by a can of beans that has lived in my pantry forever – how’s that for food blog glamour? I didn’t know what to expect with this one, but I had a feeling throwing red pepper flakes on it would make it taste good, no matter what. It turns…

Spiralized Butternut Squash Egg Nests

I’ve wanted to make a nest breakfast for a long time, but I don’t own a spiralizer, and they (possibly irrationally) scare me. So I asked my boyfriend to grab me whatever pre-spiralized item our grocery store happened to be selling one day, which varies from zucchini, to sweet potato, to other squashes. Butternut squash-oodles…

Shakshuka

My version starts with everything I could find in the refrigerator on a hungry weekend morning: a combination of pasta sauces, hot sauce, sausage, olives, parmesan, and tomatoes. But you can substitute a lot of other ingredients, too. Shakshuka, a traditionally Israeli dish, is a brunch meant for sharing on a cozy Sunday. If you…

Puff pastry eggsperiment round two, this time with meat! Things went so well the first time I tried this with just veggies, so I finally got around to making them again – but with slices of asiago spinach sausage. This is a recipe you can definitely fit in before work, as long as you remember…

Eggs on Eggplant Slices

This was EGGScellent. Sorry, had to. But really, after a bit of prep work (see: pre-salting eggplant the night before), the cooking part of this recipe is too easy. And the result is a delicious, super healthy meal. Why pre-salt the eggplant? By using salt to expel moisture from the eggplant before cooking, you prevent…

Savory Tomato Waffle “Hash” with Eggs

I’ve made a lot of breakfasts with savory waffles, so this time I tried something new: using chopped-up plant-based tomato waffles like hashbrowns and frying an egg in them. Specifically, I used swapples, made by a local DC startup that makes amazing healthy frozen waffles, but you could try this with other thick, Belgian-style waffles,…

English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches

This is one of the first meals I made in the new apartment I moved into this month – the beginning of my foray into electric stove cooking. I was delighted to find that frying eggs on an electric stove isn’t so hard (poaching is a whole other story) and that creating this fast food-inspired…
