So I was at the San Remo fruit and veg market yesterday getting some, well, fruit and veg, when I notice a basket of this
"Yeah. I see that. What is luppolo?"
"It's luppolo. You know what they make beer with."
"Sold. I'll take a bunch of that. So, what part of it do I eat? The leaves, the stems?"
"You eat it all! What are you going to make with it?"
Well, since I didn't know what it was until 1 minute ago, and I don't know which part of it I'm supposed to eat, well, I can't say I know what I will make with it. "Any ideas?", I ask.
"Oh it's delicious. You can do lots of things...frittata, risotto, or even just steamed with oil and lemon."
My friend the green grocer left BREAKFAST BOWL off the list. That's what I made with my luppolo.
So, a breakfast bowl is a creative cooking creation of my very own. This is what it is, essentially, you take any left over meat or veg from dinner the night before, if you don't have any you clear any meat or veg out of the fridge that is close to needing to be thrown out.
Fry this stuff up in a pan, add some onion if you want. Then toss a few eggs on on top of the mixture in the pan and cook this up. When this is finished, dump this meat/veg/egg stuff on a bed of any left over carbs (rice, potatoes, whatever) from the night before. Serve this in a BOWL and eat it for BREAKFAST...thus the name.
This morning, Hops and Hot dogs Breakfast Bowl.
And that ends today's session of Creative Cooking with Lynn. Buon appetito.
