A Couple of 10 Minute, Low Fat Meal Ideas Using Silverbeet
|Hot Veggie Breakfast|
This is a regular breakfast for me and keeps me full all morning. Chop up a tomato, a couple of mushrooms, a leaf or two of silverbeet and cook it in a non stick fry pan with a touch of cooking spray. In the same pan, fry up an egg and serve the lot on two pieces of toast.
2. Veggie Toastie
Finely chop some silverbeet along with some other finely chopped veggies or herbs of your choice eg spring onions, mushrooms, grated carrot, parsley etc. Combine with crumbled feta. Spread mixture on half of a flat bread. Fold the other half over and cook in a sandwich press.
Saute some chopped veggies in veggie stock. I used mushrooms, tomato, grated zucchini, broccoli, green beans. At the same time, boil up some noodles (I used 50g of soba noodles here). Mix the lot together. I sometimes also serve this with a tablespoon of pine nuts or sesame seeds.
