Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta and Broccolini — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, May 12th, 2014

Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta and BroccoliniWhether you maintain a meatless diet just one day a week or adhere to a vegetarian lifestyle, eggs are surely a welcome addition to your meat-free menu, as they’re versatile, packed with protein and, perhaps best of all, quick to prepare. Because there are multiple ways to cook eggs, you can incorporate them into nearly any meal — even lunch and dinner. The next time you make fried rice, try serving sunny-side up eggs atop the dish to add substance, or bake eggs in tomato sauce for a rustic Italian supper.

Food Network Kitchen sticks with a scrambled centerpiece in its fuss-free recipe for  Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta and Broccolini (pictured above). While this 20-minute meal is a cinch to prepare, it’s a dressed-up version of the everyday scrambles you likely ate as a child; instead of calling for American cheese, this recipe incorporates rich ricotta to create a creamy taste, and it swaps in vibrant Broccolini in place of traditional peppers and onions. It’s important to stop cooking the eggs once they’re set to yield tender, fluffy results every time. Finish the eggs with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, and serve with bread to round out the meal.

    It's interesting to me that somehow in our society, something like eggs isn't considered meat or something very close to it. Almost all the arguments you can apply for not eating meat can also be applied to eating eggs. The environmental effects, inhumane animal farming techniques, cleanliness of the pens/coups, possible contamination, etc are all concerns that apply to both. To me, for a Meatless Monday, you'd have to cut out eggs as well.
