A Deep Breathe of Life by Alan Cohen

For 10 years, this book has sat by my bedside. 
Every night I read a daily passage of Alan Cohen’s writings.

Each day, his words seem to fit with the “lesson” or the “pick me up” I seem to need.

Coincidence? Some may say yes – but... I find this book a true daily blessing.

Anytime Egg Bake

The egg bake is a tasty high-protein, flourless option that will keep you sufficiently sufficed. Feel free to experiment with the vegetables, adding a variety of your favourites to the bake.

Serves 3

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion for 8 to 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add garlic, broccoli and mushrooms to skillet and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, until broccoli softens slightly (it does not need to be fully cooked, as it will continue to cook in the oven).

In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese and salt to taste. Stir in the sautéed vegetables, then pour mixture into an oiled pie plate.

Bake for 30 to 35 mintues, until browned around the edges and cooked through. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy with a side salad.
