Fried Egg Snap Pea and Sweet Pepper Salad

Fried Egg Snap Peas and Sweet Pepper Salad

We were really hungry, but could not decide on what to fix to satisfy the hunger pains. When the fridge door was opened the eggs were staring at me, and I had recalled seeing a few recipes lately that had salads prepared and topped with a fried egg. With the examining of all the rest of the food items in the refridgerator, this was the idea we came up with: Fried Egg Snap Pea and Sweet Pepper Salad.

Take a look at the protein this recipe packs.

A 1-cup serving of cooked snap peas contains 10 grams of carbs and 4 grams of fiber, and these are the right carbs for your body’s source of energy.

A 1/2-cup serving snap peas contains 2 grams of protein. Snap peas also contain potassium a mineral needed for building proteins and muscle, and it also helps control the acid-base balance in your body.

1 ounce of sweet peppers (red, yellow, orange, and green) has about 0.28 grams of protein.

A 1-cup serving of cooked eggplant contains less than 0.82 g protein.

The mixed greens have from 4 to 5 grams of protein in a 1 cup serving.

One large 2 oz. whole egg without the shell contains 6 grams protein. Of this protein, 3 grams is contained in the egg yolk and 3 grams in the egg white.

We are showing the amounts of protein that is contained in this recipe because you could have it for breakfast. The protein and the fiber contained in the vegetables and mixed greens, can control your blood glucose to healthy levels, also providing extended energy. Which fills you up longer, and you won’t snack on junk food before lunch.

In other words this salad is great to help you control a healthy weight. Here is what you will need.

The preparation is for one serving, you will increase each ingredient depending on the number of servings you want.

Sweet peppers and snap peas

In a large mixing bowl, adding to the bowl first, 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt, a few pinches of black pepper, juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 tablespoon of organic honey, 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil, and 4 tablespoons of avocado oil. Next add about 10 snap peas, 1 each of  red, orange, and yellow mini-sweet peppers sliced into strips without the seeds.

mixed greens

Next add two handfuls of mixed greens.

Frying egg plant and egg

Next, in a heated frying pan with a little avocado oil, fry some chopped eggplant, about 1/3 of a cup. Add that to the mixing bowl with the other ingredients and mix all together until all is well coated with the wet ingredients. In the same frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of butter, add on large egg with 1 tablespoon of water, place a lid over the egg and fry for 1 minute.

Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

When your hungry but to tired to make a big deal about preparing something to eat can be discouraging. But isn’t it great when you just go looking through the refrigerator to see what you have, and you come up with a simple idea. That’s what happened here with our Sweet Pork and apple Wrap.

homemade tortillas

 

The day before we thawed out some pork loin pieces. But by dinner time I was just too tired. So we just boiled the pork in water with some garlic and cooled it down and put it away in the refrigerator. That same day some home made tortillas were made.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is what I came up with, our featured recipe: -Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap- and here is what you will need:

ingredients for Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

The amount of ingredients for the wrap depends on the number of wraps you want to make. The recipe we are preparing makes about 5 to 6 wraps.

1 cup cooked pork loin pieces, thin sliced, about 1 -inch

1/4 lb. snap peas

1 red apple, cored, sliced 1/2 inch thick, do not peel

1/3 cup avocado oil

1 teaspoon Maya Coffee Rub (bought at Whole Foods Market)*

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

* If you don’t have a Whole Foods Market near by, here is a similar if not the same recipe you can use for the coffee rub spices…

⅓ cup fresh ground coffee (dark french or Italian roast)

¼ cup cocoa powder (dark Dutch cocoa)

⅓ cup dark brown sugar

1 tbsp smoked paprika

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp sea salt

Instructions

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container like a mason jar.

mixing oil and spices for Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

In a large mixing bowl, add and combine well, the oil, vinegar, and coffee rub. Next add the cooked meat, vegetable, and fruit, and mix with the wet coffee rub until meat and produce are well coated. Keep in mind we are not marinading the meat and produce, as the meat is already cooked. The coffee rub is going to give the meat mix a great flavor.

cooking Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

Next add avocado oil to a large frying pan over med-high heat. In the Splendid Recipes kitchen, we always use ceramic coated pans (link here on some good reading about ceramic coated pans verses Teflon or non-stick pans).

When the oil is heated, add the meat mix and cook until the snap peas turn a brighter green, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Sweet Pork and Apple Wrap

Once meat mixture is warmed, remove from heat. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoonfuls of mixture on to an open tortilla in the center. Fold tortilla up into a wrap or burrito.

Plate and serve, 2 wraps per person.

We want to add, if you let the cooked meat mixture set awhile, the apples seem to have a sweet onion taste. That is how Splendid Recipes came up with Sweet Pork and Apple Wraps. If you like these wraps you might like our Oriental Chicken Wraps.

Baked Spinach Stuffed Tilapia

Baked Spinach Stuffed Tilapia

Tilapia are mainly freshwater fish found in shallow streams, ponds, rivers and lakes. Tilapia were one of the three main types of fish caught in Biblical times from the Sea of Galilee.

Tilapia have very low levels of mercury,as they are fast-growing, lean and short-lived, with a primarily vegetarian diet, so do not accumulate mercury found in prey. Tilapia are low in saturated fat, calories, carbohydrates and sodium, and are a good protein source. They also contain vitamin B-12 and trace minerals such as phosphorus, niacin, selenium, and potassium.

Black pepper adds more than just flavor, it is also good for digestion. Spinach is a cruciferous vegetable, and 4 servings a week of this class of vegetable helps ward off cancer causing cells.

As a side note, this recipe is great nutritional support for those who suffer with Schizophrenia (Read More Here: Nutritional Hope for Schizophrenic Patients).

Here is what you will need for our featured recipe:

8 oz. spinach leaves, trimmed

4 oz. Feta cheese

1 ½ lbs.Tilapia fillets, cut 6 ways

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. black pepper

6 tbsp. butter, melted

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Cook spinach in large saucepan on low heat until just wilted. Drain and cool. Squeeze excess liquid from spinach; chop finely. Combine spinach and feta in medium bowl.

Cut lengthwise pocket down 1 side of each cut Tilapia, being careful not to cut through. Pack 1/3 cup spinach mixture into each pocket. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Baked Spinach Stuffed TilapiaBake in heated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Plate and serve with your favorite side dish, such as we have here with a Bacon Cornbread or Baked Parmesan Potato.
