Food is like fashion. Like clothes, you have different ingredients that you can mix and match, you prepare differently, have with different seasons/seasonings (hehe see what I did there), and everyone is allowed to have their own taste. BOOM. That was such a clever metaphor, I’m quite proud of myself for thinking of something in the midst of my half-dead and uninspired, unmotivated brain post-midterms.
So, with this original recipe, I just decided to scramble a bunch of eggs with vegetables. I’ve never been a big fan of eggs, but it’s bearable with delicious veggies and all the right seasonings. Perfect for any college student like me who doesn’t have the time to be making gourmet meals but still needs all the proper nutrients. Like I mentioned earlier, this recipe allows for a lot of flexibility-don’t like your pee smelling all weird? Swap out asparagus with some carrots or string beans. Love bell peppers? Add in your green, your red, your yellows. Want corn? Add it in. Love cheese? Sprinkle it on top. Serve with some avocadoes. You, my friend, have as much control over this recipe as you wish.
Although, I must admit, I don’t put half of the effort in my fashion as I do my cooking. But hey, it’s college. And comfort is more important than looking cute. Now go enjoy some of this delicious comfort food in your comfortable sweats.
