Vegetarian Fried Rice by Hannah Magee
“It comes together in 30 minutes or less and requires minimal equipment. All you need is a frying pan, and a pot if your rice isn’t already cooked! You can customize it using whatever vegetables you have on hand. Have some leftover broccoli or cauliflower to use up? Throw it on in!
It’s vegetarian, but sure to impress your meat-loving family and friends.
While the dish is meatless, it remains rich in protein thanks to the use of eggs. Scrambling some eggs into this fried rice give it the feel of more traditional fried rice – like you’re ordering it at a restaurant – but it also adds a lot of nutrition.”
Easy Breakfast Tacos by My Kitchen Love
“These Breakfast Tacos became so popular in our home as we could all customize the toppings. I serve these scrambled egg tacos because everyone got to pick their favourite toppings and still fit in a nourishing meal. Scrambled eggs are one of my favourite dishes to make with my young kids. They love all the whisking and mixing they get to help with. The inclusion of helping prepare a meal gives them a great sense of pride that I love watching unfold as we get any meal rolling.”
Veggie Packed Shakshuka by Sneaky Mommies
“The goal of this dish was to pack it with as many veggies as possible, but also incorporate a smoky tomato sauce into the mix that the eggs could cook in. With eggs being such an easily accessible source of inexpensive, high-quality protein, I have been including it into as many dishes as possible.”

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs by Anar Allidina
“One of my favourite and easiest ways to enjoy eggs is boiled. Using water to cook eggs is the healthiest way to make eggs (no oil or sauces needed). Once cooked, they can be enjoyed as is or with any seasonings you like. I love cooking up a batch on a Sunday for the week. They are a grab-and-go snack and easy to eat when you are on the run. My go-to after a workout is a hard-boiled egg with a little salt and pepper.”
