Eggs In a Veggie Bowl

My kitchen is my "Science Lab" at home. I do  different experiments on food that I cook.  I am horrible with  following recipes because whenever I am preparing it and I don't have the ingredient I need, I always end up using different thing and cook different menu instead of the recipe I am trying to make lol.  

To entice my kids' appetite, I do creative things especially on veggies.  My kids are two very different individuals.  The little Miss love egg whites while the little Mister likes the yolk. So What I always do is separate the whites from the yolk and  fry them inside  a cut up veggies.  You just need to removed the inside part of the veggies and they served as the bowl for the egg.  

The first  one I used are   red bell peppers.

Yesterday, I used sliced up squash and added some  cheese on top to make it more appealing to them and they loved it!

This morning, I picked a green tomato from my garden and used it too to fry the eggs and of course, the sprinkled cheese on top does the trick in making  them want to eat it.  When you have kids, coming up with different  menus everyday is hard  but with a little bit of creativity, it's okay.
I did not want to throw the  rest of the  tomatoes so I made it into a salsa.  I thought it was going to be sour but it was actually not.  I added some strawberry, soy sauce, hot pepper flakes, and scallions.  The strawberry counter balanced the sour note of the  tomatoes and it was refreshing to eat!

Wow, that's one unique way to present a fried egg. Great job in thinking of ways to make it look appetizing to your whole family and readers alike! :D

Bilib ako sis because you can create something based on what you have in your pantry! I'm still a recipe follower except for my fave dishes that I cook. I really did not start cooking on a regular basis until I got married.

Love your idea of using cut up veggies and adding eggs and cheese. My son used to love cheese but now refuses to eat them. But this is a great idea that I would love to try!

Healthy foods along with how creatively it was done - most kids will definitely be interested to give it a taste! :)

Kudos to you sis! You just added the exclamation point to the phrase "Filipinos are great cooks" My creativity in the kitchen is sparked by left-overs. I made crispy adobo flakes out of the left over adobo, I make fish lumpia from left over fried fish, and I make empanadas with the left over casserole as filling. Ayan ang kwentong kuripot ko. Haha.

you're a very creative cook, Rose, I am like you, I don't cook from recipe as well, more on what I imagine the food to be :) sometimes though inspired from what I see, such as what I see here :)

I like how you combined healthy eating with flair sis! I have never thought of doing that on cut veggies and now, I am inspired to incorporate veggie slices on our breakfast. You get nutrients from the veggies and protein from egg. Good choice for a hearty meal.
