Broccoli Rabe, White Beans, Garlic, Sausage, and Fried eggs

4 May

unnamed unnamed1

This was a great leftover meal that turned into one of my favorites.

Now I make all the ingredients just to eat it.

4 cloves of garlic

8 tablespoons of olive oil

One 16 ounce bag of frozen broccoli rabe, defrosted and squeezed dry.

One can of drained small white kidney beans

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

One pound of crumbled sausage

Two fried eggs for every serving

Dash of hot sauce

Heat the oil

Add the garlic and cook till slightly brown

Add the broccoli rabe, salt and pepper.

Cook for about five minutes.

Add the beans and cook till all the liquid is almost evaporated.

Take off the heat and adjust your salt.

In another pan crumble the sausage and cook till brown and well done.

Drain on a paper towel.

In the same frying pan fry two eggs. I like mine flipped over to really cook the whites.

Place four heaping tablespoons  of the bean and broccoli mixture in a bowl

Add three to four tablespoons of crumbled sausage

Top with the two fried eggs

Drizzle some hot sauce if you like.

I felt so healthy after I ate this.

I rewarded myself with peanut M&Ms.



Garlic Cauliflower Rice and Pizza

9 Mar

Garlic Cauliflower Pizza

I found this recipe on line and it looked interesting.

I will give you the modified recipe because there was too, too much garlic and too much broth but I did salvage it and turned it into a great vegetable dish and delicious pizza.

One large head of cauliflower

4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups cooked rice

8 ounces of mozzarella, provolone and cheddar mixture

Two tablespoons butter

Three cloves of minced garlic

One medium diced onion

Steam the cauliflower in the broth till it is soft about 15 minutes

Add the salt

Drain the cauliflower and blend till smooth

Use the broth to smooth it out.

Add the salt

Melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic till soft

Add to the cauliflower and add the rice.

Mix everything together including the cheese and mix till well incorporated.

This can be served as is and it is delicious but I used  the leftovers as a base on pizza .OMG it is good.

One pound of pizza dough

Crisco for the bottom of the pan

Cauliflower rice mixture

Leftover broccoli rabe about 1 1/2 cups

Leftover eggplant about one cup

Provolone and muenster cheese for the top

Spread the dough out onto a greased pizza pan

Add a 1/4 inch layer of the cauliflower or more on the pizza dough

Add the leftover broccoli rabe on one side of the pizza and the eggplant on the other side

Top with the cheese

Bake in a preheated 475 degree oven on the bottom shelf for 15 minutes or until the bottom crust is brown.

This is such a great way to use up any kind of leftovers especially vegetables but it also would be good with leftover sausage or chicken.

Pan fried sirloin tips with braised fennel. Sweet potatoes and broccoli rabe

This was a delicious meal and worth trying.
9 sirloin tip steaks

Make sure you rub this into each steak.

Cook for another two minutes and place into a oven proof pan till all the steaks are done.
Place in a 350 degree oven for ten minutes.
Using the same frying pan that you cooked the steaks.
Slice 1/2 of a fennel bulb into slices.
Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper,
Sear the fennel and cook on high just until it is slightly wilted.
Serve on the steak.
I also made baked sweet potatoes and broccoli rabe
It was a pretty good meal.

broccoli rabe

Love broccoli rabe. I ate a ton of it when I was pregnant and never stopped.

6 tablespoons olive oil

8 big cloves of sliced garlic

2 big bunches of broccoli rabe

one teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2 tablespoons chicken consume or 4  bouillon cubes

1 1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Heat the oil in a big pot

Add the garlic and cook till soft but not brown

Cut the bottom 1/2 inch stems off the rabe and discard

Cut the remaining rabe into one inch pieces

Put everything into the pot including the beans

Cover the pot and let it simmer for about ten to fifteen minutes

Stir and it is ready to eat

The rabe should be soft

Season with salt and pepper if needed

Serve as a side dish or just in a bowl with crunchy bread

Great with sausage

This also makes a delicious pizza topped with cheese

Try an omelet the next day. You will love it.
