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)
2 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!Pin It
