Rosemary Broccolini and Fried Egg Over Rice

by Laurel on June 16, 2013

Last week I cooked a quick meal at my friend’s apartment, using a few healthy ingredients she had in her refrig. It was late on a weeknight after a full day of work and exercise, so I wanted something healthy, satisfying, and filling. But, I didn’t want it to take forever to cook. So, I pulled out some frozen brown rice from the freezer, and sauteed up some broccolini and garlic with pine nuts and a fried egg. Man, it was good. No fluff or fancy flavors here. Just good fresh food. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Oh, one more thing…Please excuse my pictures. I’m in the middle of a move this month, and I won’t have my lights set up until July. Bare with me!

Rosemary Broccolini and Fried Egg Over Rice
(gluten-free, dairy-free, serves 2)

Rosemary Broccolini and Fried Egg Over Rice2 large organic  eggs
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
1 bunch broccolini
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 tbsp. fresh rosemary leaves
1 tsp. olive oil (or avocado oil)
Pinch sea salt
Pinch red pepper flakes

Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Roughly chop the garlic cloves and cut the broccolini into 2-inch pieces. Drizzle the oil into the pan and add in the garlic. Sauté for a minute or two until the garlic is sizzling. Add in the broccolini and about 1 tablespoon of water. Stir quickly and cover with a lid. Cook for about a minute, and then remove the lid. Rougly chop the rosemary and then sprinkle it into the pan. Add in the pine nuts. Stir and cook for another minute. Remove from heat.

In another pan, fry the eggs, leaving the yolks a little runny.

Place the cooked brown rice in two bowls and top it with the broccolini, garlic, rosemary, and pine nuts. Add a fried egg on top of each bowl. Sprinkle on a pinch of sea salt and red pepper flakes. Optionally, garnish with extra rosemary.

Tip: The broccolini stems are edible and tender, so you only need to trim off the very bottom and you can eat the rest. Don’t waste it!

I’m imagining this as the perfect breakfast, I’m going to try it out tomorrow. Or is there something in it which is a no-no in most diets? I’ve started to eat consciously not long ago, the rules are still being learned…

Hi Matthew,
There are so many different diets out there that potentially any food could be a “no no”. In my mind, this is a healthy meal, made at home with whole foods. But everyone has different diet restrictions, so feel free to adjust as necessary.

All the best, Laurel

Putting a fried egg over rice is one of my favourite things to cook when I’m feeling too lazy to cook meat because it’s such a great source of protein.

I especially like to fry my egg over-easy so that the yolk is still runny. I really enjoy breaking the yolk and eating it together with the rice. The creaminess puts the dish together.

Lately, I’ve been trying to stay away from fried eggs. Instead, I’ve been poaching eggs to eliminate the extra cooking oil needed for frying eggs. Poached eggs also go really well with rice!
