Tricky Foods: Green Eggs


I've recently tried being tricky with vegetables and slipping them in David's food wherever I can. This is because we're in the 'throwing unacceptable food' and 'spitting out healthy food' stage. So, I am SURE I'm not the first to think of these tricky foods but, I am feeling quite triumphant here. If only for the sake of future reference I'm going to do a series of posts called 'Tricky Foods' as I win in the kitchen.



  • 2 Eggs
  • pinch of garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you live by an international grocery store that's practically giving this stuff away)
  • broccoli or spinach chopped (or if you have a magic bullet or good food processor throw all this stuff in there and blend until unrecognizable)
  • butter
  • cheese of any kind

Scramble eggs and mix in garlic and green item. Whisk or blend to death. Cook in a buttered frying pan trying to maintain 'whole' shape like making an omelet. Flip once and sprinkle with cheese.

Variation: if all you have is a big hunk of cheese, and if you have a blending tool - throw that baby in there and incorporate it with the eggs.

Now. This food does sometimes qualify as 'unacceptable and deserving of throwing' so in that case, put it on a baby fork and hand the fork to your little monster. If that doesn't work. Sorry, guess this wasn't tricky enough... add more cheese?
