Make this tasty dinner in less than 30 minutes using up all the scraps in your fridge.
1 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 leeks, (or 1/2 an onion) diced
4 cups chopped veggies, (use the unwanted tops, stems or greens)
3/4 cup cheese, grated
1/2 cup cooked meat, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 425F.
Heat a 10-in.– ovenproof pan over medium heat. Add oil, garlic and leeks and cook, about 3 min, stirring.
Add veggie tops, stems or greens and 2 tbsp water. Cover and cook until wilted and water has mostly evaporated, 3 min. Remove lid and cook for another few minutes, stirring occasionally, until greens reduce in volume by about half.
Meanwhile, crack 8 eggs into a large bowl and whisk with half the cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
Add cooked meat (if desired) to pan and pour egg mixture overtop. Use a wooden spoon to evenly distribute the egg mixture over ingredients. Sprinkle remaining cheese overtop, then place thin slices of red bell pepper on top.
Transfer to oven and bake until cooked through, about 12 min. Makes 4 servings.
Before you head to the grocery, look inside your fridge as many of these items are likely lingering in the back.
