A Meat Free and Fuss Free Leftover Gem…

I almost forgot to tell you lovely readers out there about this little gem of a dish, of which I never imagined tasting as nice as it did.  I have come up with different versions of this before but not so much with these ingredients, more spicy, such as Mexican style.

  It was in the middle of my “Roast Pork challenge” and by lunch time of the 3rd and final day, I was crying out for something Vegetarian.  I do like my Meat, but I also like variety in a week.  So I took a look into my Fridge and I literally save everything that I can safely put back into another meal the following day.  Here in my fridge were various tubs of cooked vegetables, including the potatoes.  I assembled all ingredients with lids off the tubs and took a glare.  Ok Im going to whack everything together, add Eggs and spices, a bit like Bubble and Squeak and Hope for the best! 

  It was lovely. Warming,comforting and a really nice Lunch that again was very cheap and quick to allow me to carry on writing.  So if you have any of your Veg from yesterdays Roast, why not give this a Go?…

*Not the Greatest looking dish, I know!* but tastes lush.

 Scrambled Veg with Eggs :


( Baring in mind, you can be as versatile with this recipe as you like. It is your leftovers, these were just mine) … Amounts do not matter in this.

–  Tbsp of Rapeseed oil or the oil you normally fry in?
–  1 Clove of fresh Garlic chopped finely
–  1 Spring onion chopped.
–  A 2 inch piece of fresh Leek sliced finely
–  A Tsp of mild Curry powder
–  1/2 Tsp of smoked paprika
–  Salt and Pepper to season.

–  4 leftover Cooked roast potatoes

–  Some leftover cooked Savoy cabbage
–  A few leftover cooked carrots about 6 pieces, if being precise.
–  Some leftover cooked sugar snap peas 
–  Some sliced, Cooked white onion.
–  2-3 eggs depending on size
–  Salt and Pepper to season.
If you want more spice, Add fresh chilli to heat it up! 

In a bowl, Mash the Cooked roast potatoes roughly.  Add all of the cooked ingredients and mash up with your hands (Fun Part!). 

Whisk the eggs in another Bowl as you would for an Omelette and season a little.

Pop the chosen oil into your frying pan and start to fry off the leeks, garlic, spring onion, curry powder and paprika.

Then add the Cooked leftover Potato and Vegetable mix. Followed by the Eggs and now the world is your Oyster as you can scramble the whole lot as I did or try and flatten like Bubble and Squeak!  Whatever you have chosen to put in this or however you cook it? It is as Versatile as you want it to be.

A lovely Meat Free, Fuss free, thrifty Lunch or Dinner. You choose…
