Eggs are a complete meal in their own right. But we need to add some leafy greens to up the anti somewhat! Eggs should be bought organic or as free, free range as you can find. Organic is about $1 a pop so that makes for a super cheap meal!
Let’s talk greens. Silverbeet really is a bit of a funny earthy flavour that can stuff up your meal in a flash! I’ve done it before. Maybe it’s the amount I put in, but there’s only one way I really like it cooked and that’s in a frittata with feta. Maybe it’s the balance of salt from the feta that makes it so good. I’ve used my own spice blend in this recipe which gives it a really hearty boost of flavour, but you can just stick to one or two herbs and it’ll still taste great. Thyme or oregano is good. Even a little of ol’ basil.
While I don’t want to put you off silverbeet, I do want you to buy her and use her sooner rather than later. She is a big girl, who takes up valuable real estate in your fridge. When she is chopped and cooked up though, she can create the perfect lunch, stop gap between meals, or reheats nicely for dinner.
