INDIAN STYLE CUMIN AND TURMERIC EGG BRUNCH RECIPE
INDIAN-STYLE CUMIN AND TURMERIC EGG BRUNCH
BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, OR BREAKFAST FOR DINNER
This recipe is excellent for a late morning brunch, and is filling enough for a breakfast for dinner selection. I borrowed the recipe from Richard Beliveau, Ph.D, and Dennis Gingras, Ph.D. (Cooking with Foods that Fight Cancer), but replaced the coriander with fresh broccoli, as coriander could not be found in my little rural Georgia town. Frankly, I don't know that the authors could have prepared a more tasty dish, or one with more cancer fighting ingredients, since fresh broccoli is hard to beat.
1 dash of olive oil (I used two tablespoons)
1 large onion (I like my onion lite, so I added only two thick slices)
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced (I added three)
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 teaspoons of ground cumin (I only added one)
2 1/4 cups of stewed canned tomatoes (I added two cups)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper ( don't forget the pepper is needed for the anti cancer benefits of turmeric)
4 eggs, organic, omega 3 eggs, of course! (I only added 3, and unfortunately, ate them all, it was so delicious!)
1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped (I replaced with fresh broccoli, for the reasons stated above).
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, and sweat the onions and garlic until they are translucent.
Add the turmeric and cumin, and stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, and season to taste. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes, until the mixture thickens.
Make four nests in the mixture, and crack one egg into each nest, taking care not to break the yoke.
Continue cooking until the egg whites are cooked.
Garnish with fresh coriander and serve immediately. (Again, I used broccoli in place of the coriander, and it worked wonderfully).
After you try this one, I'd be interested in reading your opinion in the comments section. I thought it tasted great, and it included a number of anti cancer ingredients. Enjoy! Fighting cancer never tasted any better.
