Because There is Only SO Much Steak a Person Can Eat…

Posted on September 17, 2010 by Vivi in RECIPES, VEGETARIAN

I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of cooks in the world: those who follow a recipe to create something specific, and those who look in the fridge to see what they can scrounge up and try to pass it off as a meal.  I am a member of that second group.

Here was my latest invention:

Since my fridge usually doesn’t have anything interesting in it, I have to get creative.  Broccoli was my ingredient, and I had to make it into something worthy of serving to others as a complete dish.  Luckily I found rice, and practiced poaching eggs,  thus creating something … interesting.  And tasty!

Here I am caught in the act, right in the midst of the ‘creative’ process.

I sautéed onion and garlic to add to the broccoli.  That was my finishing touch.

No, I never would have thought of broccoli, rice and a poached egg as a gourmet meal, but its amazing the things you appreciate when you’re really hungry and sick of steak.


  1. omg…looks soo good. i want a restaurant (well my brother and i) that will serve a fried egg on top of anything you order. breakfast?—fried egg. hamburger?—friend egg. ice cream?—fried egg. if you order a fried egg?–you get a fried egg!!!
