This is a great recipe to play around with. If you add other vegetables like peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms or fresh herbs, it will taste better if you saute them first and then add them to the egg mixture. I like using little dessert cups because I don’t have to clean a muffin tin after, if you use them, bake them about ten minutes longer because they are taller and bigger than muffin tins. Don’t worry when you see the egg muffin collapse a little after coming out of the oven, it is supposed to do that and will taste delicious! This is great for kids school lunches, breakfast, lunch or dinner! Use them to dip in soup instead of bread!
Here is an amazing trick for vegetable stock. Save all the scraps of fresh food that you would normally throw out every week (example: sweet potato peels, tops of onions, leaves of celery, stems of herbs and put it in a large pot and boil for 2 hours, salt to taste and there you have it! The more vegetable scraps the better its flavor!) You can do this and freeze it, you can do it with turkey necks and chicken or beef bones to add more flavor but it is the best! Then you can strain it and freeze it or strain it right into this soup!
Turkey has a much better proportion of unsaturated fats to saturated fats than chicken. When you are at the butcher counter of any supermarket, ask them to thinly slice the turkey breast there for you. You can also grill it!
Sabich is an Iraqi-Jewish and Israeli sandwich, consisting of pita stuffed with fried eggplant and hard boiled eggs. This is my version of it!
You can really play around with this recipe! You can add fresh pomegranates, mint and cilantro once it is cooked. You can use other tea bags of flavors you love (ones with cinnamon are a usual win), you can add saffron or turmeric powder to create a golden look. You can add orange zest, or lemon zest.
