So, I changed it up.
At our house we also like to "naturally fortify" our food. We do this by adding other nutritious food to it. For example, we naturally fortify our rice milk by adding a little quinoa in it. Or, we may add finely grated carrots into our spaghetti sauce. Or, we may put spinach in our pancakes. Crazy I know but it works!
Whatever it may be, we're always looking for ways to sneak more nutrients in. So introducing the Nielsen family's Naturally Fortified Omelet!
Naturally Fortified Omelet
Created by jalene
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp water
- 1/2 Tbsp finely diced or grated zucchini
- 1/2 Tbsp finely diced spinach
- 1/2 Tbsp finely grated carrot
- sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
- Preheat a small round pan over medium heat.
- Break the egg into a small bowl. Add the water and slightly combine. (Over beating your egg can make it tough.)
- Pour your egg into the hot pan. Add the zucchini, spinach, and carrot by sprinkling them on top of the cooking egg. When the underside is almost light brown, flip the egg and slightly cook on the sprinkled side. Flavor with salt and pepper.
Tips from jalene:
- RECIPE ALTERATION: Don't have one of the "naturally fortifying" ingredients on hand? Try changing it up. Avocado, red onion, tomatoes, diced meat, or cheese are all great additions too.
- Start your kids young! I started Audrey young with all sorts of combinations so she could be comfortable with any food I give her. So far it's worked well...If your kids are complaining about "something green" in their food, start slowly adding more and more items into their favorite dishes until they can look past the foreign object and just enjoy the taste.
