|Why mushroom don't look good on a photo, |
but tastes just out of this world?!
While I was on a road a few weeks back I received a phone call from a friend asking me to post some recipes for a simple meals on my blog. I almost choked from such an unexpected request. Then he added: "I made a borscht, following your recipe. It was very good, I just didn't know how big or small chopped pieces have to be. Would be nice if you give more details for the non-cooks like me".
For a moment I was making non-articulated sounds, being very surprised by the whole conversation, and driving at the same time (for authorities: I have a hands-free set).
Making sure my eyes were on the road, I let my head spin a bit to process all I just mentally inhaled.
Finally, a few moment later when I came back to the reality, I said something like: "Oh, yes! I am so happy that you read my blog and use my recipes! Sure, sure, when I am settled I will make a post with a simple recipe".
And then we went talking about other things Life.
A few days ago I caught myself wanting something simple for lunch, and I made this meal in one skillet and with only three main ingredients: one mushroom, one onion, and one egg.
I served it and right before I was ready to dig into my lunch, I remembered my friend's request: he most definitely would want to make this, I better take a picture.
- 1 mushroom, sliced into 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) pieces
- 1 onion, sliced into a 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) pieces
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
1. Pre-heat the oil in a non-stick skillet, about 2 minutes. Stove setting is medium-high.
2. Add sliced onions, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and stir for one minute.
3. Add mushrooms, stir for another 2 minutes.
4. Move onion and mushrooms to the side of the skillet and beat one egg (tip: brake the egg into a separate dish before adding to the skillet. If it's rotten, you won't spoil the whole meal).
5. Cook the egg for a minute, add some salt and pepper to taste, and your quick meal is ready!
You can serve it on a slice of bread, which will make it an open face sandwich. I didn't use any bread, hence my sandwich was breadless.
Add some herbs and vegetables to it, poor yourself a cup of coffee or a tomato juice, and with a big and happy smile have a great lunch (or breakfast, or dinner)! :)
