No Stove, Easy, Delicious, Healthy, and Cheap!
Once in a blue moon, I have some eggs. It’s a rare occurrence, but I am an imperfect vegetarian and vegan, and the pandemic placed me in a desperate place, temporarily, I hope.
However, I do only use organic, free range eggs, and usually I get them from chickens I know; meaning they are from people I know who keep chickens for life and I know what the chickens are eating and how they are being treated. And they must be healthy and happy chickens!
Since I don’t have a stove in my garage, I use my rice cooker for just about everything, including of course, making rice. It’s quite magical and one of poor woman’s best friend. I throw just about anything in there and push the cook button and I have a no recipe, easy, healthy, delicious and a cheap meal, and the bonus is that I don’t have a greasy stove to clean up or lots of dishes. Yea!
For the omelet, I use my favorite veggies and herbs, but I usually throw in whatever is in the fridge, especially my senior veggies that’s ready to exit, and I avoid waste. Often, I add beans and peas for protein as well.
The rice cooker omelet always comes out perfectly cooked, beautiful, hearty, and fluffy, and I have turned it into an omelet sandwich or a wrap. Sometimes, I just have it with a simple salad, a bowl or brown rice, toast, or even baked chips. I also like to put ketchup and/or hot sauce or chili flakes for extra flavor and spiciness. Eggs and ketchup or a match made in heaven. You can also add some spices and turn it into something totally exotic. I usually make a big batch and have it throughout the week. It keeps well in the fridge for at least a week.
This rice cooker omelet can be breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a snack. And I’ve eaten it in every way possible because it’s so easy, yummy, and affordable. Give it a try.
