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.
Rhodes keeps abreast of new food trends – and right now fresh red figs are more popular than green figs. So, it gives Rhodes great pleasure to launch their Red Fig Fruit Jam in a convenient glass jar.

Rhodes Two Fruits™ is a new mouth-watering canned fruit treat that is both economical and delicious. Made from choice grade diced peaches and pears in a syrup, Rhodes Two Fruits™ in a can is a convenient way to enjoy seasonal fruit, preservative free, all year round.
At Rhodes, they take pride in their innovative spirit and jam-making skills. At the same time, they also realise the importance of keeping and enhancing traditonal South African favourites. This is why Rhodes is so excited to launch their new 450 g Rhodes Chunky Apricot Jam.
