A delicious economical dish perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
30ml (2 Tbsp) oil
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 red sweet pepper, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely pressed
1 tin (410g) Rhodes Mixed Vegetables, drained
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
45ml (3 Tbsp) chopped fresh parsley
8 eggs, beaten
125ml (1/2 cup) cream
1 wheel feta cheese, finely crumbled
rocket leaves, for serving
Preheat the oven to 220°C. Heat the oil in a 24cm oven-proof pan and fry the onion, sweet pepper and garlic until soft. Add the mixed vegetables and fry briefly until warmed through. Season to taste. Beat the parsley, eggs and cream together and pour over the vegetable mixture. Keep the pan over a low heat until the egg mixture has almost set. Sprinkle the feta over and place the pan in the oven until the egg is cooked and golden brown. Sprinkle the rocket over and serve with wholegrain bread and salad.
* Replace the sweet pepper with mushrooms, baby marrows or anything else you fancy.
* Add bite by adding 8-10 chopped Peppadews to the mixed vegetables.
* Replace the feta with Cheddar, blue cheese or even brie.
Given the success of the Rhodes Fruit in Juice range which includes Peach, Fruit Cocktail, Pineapple and Grapefruit, they are thrilled to be extending the range to include Guava. And just in time for winter too!
At Rhodes they know that there are times when a dish simply begs for more than one cup of their tasty tomato paste. And for this very reason, they have created the Rhodes Tomato Paste Cups Value Pack.
At Rhodes, they have a saying, “If you love the heat, then get into the kitchen”, which is why they are proud to introduce Rhodes Potatoes and Chick Peas in a Curry Sauce.
A Rhodes Cover Kid competition launched in October last year with the maverick magazine title Kuier, produced an avalanche of entries, plus a new winning advert for the Rhodes brand.
