Egg with Tofu & Spinach

Egg w/ Tofu & Spinach

Egg

The incredible, edible egg. That was a big-time slogan for eggs many moons ago. I believe it came about right after there were some reports about them being high in cholesterol(which they are) and the egg industry wanted to get the word out that eggs were a healthy choice when it came to eating. Both the slogan and the tune are quite catchy, making this 30+ years old slogan one that is still quite popular.

Ingredients 2 large eggs Tofu -about 2 ounces Spinach – michael kors bags outlet about 4 ounces (if leaves are large, cut up with scissors to make it easier to eat) Oil or butter for the pan Dash of salt Directions Turn on the burner to medium heat and add oil to keep the ingredients from sticking. Add the spinach and cook for a few minutes or until it starts to soften. Add the already crumbled tofu into the pan and cook for a few more minutes. If you’re new to using tofu you can experiment with cooking it a little quicker or a little longer to find out how long to cook it so that it meets your specific tastes.
