Do you ever want to be on shows like Top Chef or The Next Food Network Star? Maybe even a contestant on The Price is Right? Well, I will tell you a secret, I used to study The Price is Right as a kid and memorize the prices of different foods when I was dragged around to the grocery store. Now I just dream of being on Top Chef for vegetarians or something like that..
At work I signed up for a simple food competition for our company’s wellness fair. We had to choose a healthy recipe from our health portal and 5 judges had to sample and judge it based on cost, calorie content, taste, presentation, and time to prepare. Well, one of the judges wouldn’t even try my dish because they didn’t like asparagus and I made an asparagus frittata. So yeah go figure I didn’t win.
I sampled my dish for breakfast along with some Justin’s Maple Almond butter which I really enjoyed!
Here is my presentation..well last minute put together presentation haha
1/2 lb Asparagus
1/2 Red Bell Pepper thinly sliced
4 Shallots thinly sliced
4 Egg Whites
1 clove of garlic minced
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
Directions: Chop the asparagus into 2 1/2 inch sections and boil for 2 minutes, drain and remove from heat. Saute the shallots and bell peppers with garlic on low heat in a cast iron skillet for 5 minutes or until tender. Add these to the asparagus and set aside. Whisk the eggs together with salt and pepper and add a splash of milk (dairy or non dairy) if desired. Stir the veggies into the eggs and pour into a hot cast iron skillet. Allow the bottom to set for about 5 minutes and then place in 400 degree oven to finish it. Top with parmesan cheese after a couple minutes and then return to oven to brown.
Next competition I will win! I will try at least ;)
