My Favourite Easy Egg Recipes – by Dr. Michelle Storfer

Hot on the heels of my recent “Eggs… The Whole Truth” post (on the what, why & how-to on eating eggs as part of a healthy diet, & their nutritional benefits), which you can read on my blog HERE, I thought I’d share some of my favourite quick and easy “go-to” egg recipes, that I often whip up for myself, and also include in my clients’ plans, as simple, healthy, tasty and “waist-line friendly” options for breakfast, lunch or dinner… all perfect for Modellist-ID! 🙂

Spicy Tomato & Pepper Frittata

Dr. Michelle Storfer Recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients:

2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites
1 red or yellow pepper
2 large vine tomatoes
1 generous pinch cayenne pepper/ dry chili flakes
½ tsp. cumin
Generous pinch of salt and pepper
Olive oil/ spray oil – for cooking

Directions:

De-seed and dice red/ yellow pepper.  Chop tomatoes into cubes. Lightly grease a frying pan with 1-2 tsp. olive oil or cooking oil spray.  Heat over medium heat.  Add the tomatoes, along with the cayenne pepper/ chili flakes, cumin, salt and pepper.  Cover the pan with a lid and simmer gently for ~ 5 minutes.  Whisk the 2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites in a bowl and slowly pour into the pan.  Cover and cook over a LOW heat for 12-15 minutes, or until set.  Divide in half and serve!
Delicious with a fresh green salad +/- some healthy whole-grain crackers or toast.
