Yup, it’s a new year!
New resolutions, new rules, clean slate.
But, I’m not making any resolutions this year other than to try be better at being me than I was last year – and this will filter into everything I do… my blogging game can be upped a little bit, I definitely want to keep improving in my running, I want to get great at kickboxing. These are all things I have already laid the ground work for in past years, so this year is just focusing on making them better 🙂
And to start off I decided to try out some healthy cooking (and used JPEG & Roomie as my guinea pigs for the first meal 😉 )
I LOVE eggs – if I could eat eggs every day for the rest of my life, I would die a happy person… but sometimes it gets a bit boring to have them scrambled, or boiled or fried. So one day I was looking online for some inspiration on ways to eat eggs – but specifically EASY ways to do this as we all know how lazy I am 😛
I came across soooo many ideas, but for my first one (yes, there will be more of these posts to follow!) I chose to do roast bell peppers / capsicum stuffed with egg.
There were dozens of different recipes online and some of them so complicated and difficult so I ended up just putting my own ingredients and directions together.
- Bell peppers / capsicum
- Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
- Set the oven to about 180° C while you clean, halve the peppers and remove the seeds
- Place them in tin foil (makes it easier to remove from the tray / catch any spillage of egg) and place onto a baking tray, sprinkle with olive oil, then pop into the oven for about 10 minutes
- While the peppers are doing their thing in the oven, sauté the mushrooms & onions – personally I added some herb & thai spices, and a touch of garlic
- Remove the peppers from the oven and spoon the mushroom & onion mix into them, making sure to leave enough space for the eggs
- Crack an egg into each half
- Sprinkle some cheese over the top
- Pop back in the oven for about 15 minutes – depending on how well done you want your egg
- Remove from the oven
Now, this is obviously a recipe that you can mix and match the ingredients for days…. I chose these as a simple start, being a first time and all – I didn’t want to risk another failed attempt at cooking for my housemates!
And the outcome – absolutely delicious! The girls loved them!
I made sure to make extra so that I could bring them to work the next day, and so for lunch I heated them up and added some turkey ham with them. Yum!
