Egg-cellent!

18 May

Okay, I know, I know, it’s a day late, but better late than never, right?  So here it is: Week two CSA pickup was yesterday.  We walked to the farm- over 3 miles round trip- to pick up our greens, asparagus, onions, garlic, radishes and fresh eggs.  I think my favorite thing so far has been the eggs.  Last week there was a skunk invasion at the farm, so there were no eggs, and I was pretty disappointed, but this week we were able to get a carton of the colorful things.  The person in charge of our CSA sends out an email every week letting us know what we are getting.  Sometimes there are a few extras, but mostly we will know ahead of time, which is really nice for planning a meal.

This week was a tossup between egg bake and fried rice.  Fried rice with a side salad of fresh greens and rhubarb dressing won, and probably for the best since both Eric and I were starving when we finally got home.  Since I had prepared the rice earlier during the day, it was a snap to throw together.  Here’s how you can too:

Throw 2 cups uncooked brown rice into your handy rice cooker (best kitchen appliance yet, if you don’t have one, get one!) Chill in the refrigerator prior to use.

In 2 Tbsp sesame oil, cook green onions, asparagus, green garlic for a few minutes until soft.

Add rice.

At this point I put in a splash of rice vinegar and oyster sauce, I didn’t need any other seasonings.

whisk 2-3 eggs, mix eggs and rice mixture for a few minutes over heat.

Remove from heat, egg will cook on the residual heat from the rice.

In my case, enjoy, and immediately collapse in bed!  Enjoy your eggs 🙂
