Quick & easy breakfast, suitable for low-carb and low-GI diets such as Greek Doctor, Gallop, South Beach, Atkins Phase 2. Really filliing. You can easily vary the vegetables according to what you have--mushrooms are very nice--or use frozen, tinned or leftovers. People who have to watch their cholesterol intake may use 4 egg whites instead and make a fabulous hair mask with the yolks. Just remember to recalculate calories if you make any changes.
Bonus: there's very little washing up, with experience you can even beat the eggs directly into the semi-cooked vegetables. Submitted by SUNNY112358
No trans fats, and fat content can be reduced a litttle further. A very effective and much healthier, substitute for that famous baking mix, at a fraction of the price. Store in airtight container, no need to refrigerate if used up within a couple of months. Shake into measuring cup stood on a plate (don't scoop from container or it will compact).

Cookbook creator says: As I was uploading I was shownn a similar recipe from another member, with avgolemono sauce. That's optional in this recipe, we don't usually do it in our family (including my Greek mother-in-law) but if you like it, by all means add at the end of cooking time.Submitted by SUNNY112358
Cookbook creator says: This salad should be "free" on most diet plans, since you only add the olive oil at the moment of serving and thus control the amount (or omit altogether). For South Beach Phase 1 omit the carrots.Submitted by SUNNY112358
This is a winter favourite in Japan, both as part of a main meal and as a savoury accompnaniment to sake.
For an authentic touch, sprinkle with bonito flakes.
If you cannot find mirin you can substitute sake with a little sugar, or use sherry. If you cannot find dashi granules you can substitute chicken bouillon cubes. Submitted by SUNNY112358
Suitable for South Beach and Atkins.
Also a filling meal for those who have to watch their pennies, as you can use less meat or stretch the meat to feed more mouths with more cabbage and other vegetables (e.g. tinned tomato or carrots), and even with rice or orzo (these additions are not suitable for low-carbers). I prefer beef mince for its iron content but for a change of pace you can substitute pork or turkey mince and vary the spices.Submitted by SUNNY112358
