Sriracha Broccoli Egg Chop - Cook Republic

 

Are you getting caught up in the end of the year madness yet? I have been wooed and waltzed right into it like a princess at the royal ball. I am doing a bit of housekeeping - notice the new header up top? It is the Cook Republic food truck and it is here to stay, strictly online of course. Calendars, dates, appointments, catch-ups, parties, work commitments, new ventures have depleted my time but I am trying to do the right thing and still not skip lunch. An egg chop goes a long way in sustaining those hunger pangs when there is so much else going on.

The recipe I am sharing today sounds more like a kung-fu movie and less like a protein packed speedy lunch dish. It is kind of like both in some ways. Speedy lunch - check! Packs a wallop (especially if you heap the Sriracha) - check! The best things in life are either free or amazingly simple. It doesn't get any simpler than this mix of flavours on a slice of homemade bread. And in the spirit of simplicity, hope you make it this week and enjoy it as much as I do.

SRIRACHA BROCCOLI EGG CHOP

A speedy protein packed brunch idea for a mid morning pick-me-up.

Makes - To serve 2

 

Ingredients

4 boiled eggs, roughly chopped
8 small broccoli florets, steamed for 2 minutes in the microwave and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
big squeezes of Sriracha sauce (preferably Huy Fong Rooster brand)

 

Method

Combine all ingredients except Sriracha sauce in a large bowl and toss gently. Serve with a squeeze of Sriracha sauce.

 

My Notes

You can add toasted slivered almonds to the mix and give it some crunch.

Can be served as a salad, open sandwich topping or stuffing for calzones, croquettes and pies.

I often just stir through the Sriracha instead of squeezing some on top when I am by myself, because I am kind of addicted to it.

    Simple recipes like this are always the best. Stir-fried veggies heaped on top on rice/roti/bread is always my favorite on busy days 🙂

    Sriracha is a staple in our house, and I love the idea of a broccoli and egg chop for lunch or those nights when I'm too exhausted to put together a meal. Great post!

    I love eggs + mustard... can't imagine the combination with Sriracha but will give it a go.

    Where do you buy Huy Fong Rooster sriracha?! And (related question) - do you know where I could get my hands on organic, unrefined, toasted sesame oil perchance?

    This looks gorgeous and I can't wait to try it. When I track down the sriracha.

    Never thought of adding broccoli to egg salad - will have to try it with the next broccoli which sits uneaten in the fridge! Love your new header, very clean and funky.

    I have a new bottle of sriracha and I'm pretty sure it's meant for this!
