Last night was a vegetarian meal for us. Something nice and cool, filling and healthy. It also was an excuse to use up a lot of what I had in the fridge. It’s amazing what accumulates. Time to see what I can do with what’s there..
Here’s what I came up with to empty the fridge and create something from not much…
Poach an egg… There is NOTHING better than a poached egg on a spinach salad. Cut into it and the yellow oozes out… YUM!
Saute some peppers and onions… I tried something new to me… I had some honey sitting on the shelf. thought, why not and added a couple tablespoons of honey to the saute pan. Made a nice contrast. Don’t over do the sauteing. I like to have a little crisp to the veggies in my salad, so the honey sweet, the raw onion taste and the crisp peppers made a nice combo of flavors.
Eggs on the spinach!
Line the edge of the salad with the sauteed vegetables.
Top with some walnuts…
And a little bottled Italian dressing and this is what we had to suffer through.
Quick and very tasty and much better than tossing in the trash!
