Solo lunches are usually quick ones for me. But, that doesn't mean it has to be boring! Like this one. A simple hash of roasted vegetables and spicy sausage made heartier and playful with the addition of a poached egg.
At the moment, I am a bit thin on the story telling and yarn spinning talent. So, until the block clears, I'll just leave you with the photos and perhaps, one of the simplest, happiest recipes on Earth! Fortunately, I think this dish needs no further eloquence.. :D
Roasted Vegetable Hash with Poached Egg
5-6 brussel sprouts, split
1 carrot, diced 1/4 inch
2 whole cloves of garlic
1 spicy, pre-cooked sausage, diced 1/4 inch
1/2 small onion, diced fine
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
Feta or goat cheese as needed
1 egg, poached
olive oil and salt as needed
Toss the brussel sprouts, garlic and carrots in a bit of oil. Season with salt, oregano, cumin and pepper and toss to coat well. Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes until browned and soft. Remove and cool on rack for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, saute the onions until soft. Add the sausage and brown a bit. You can add some cumin and chili flakes if you want. Add the veggies and lightly saute for a couple of minutes. Serve with a freshly poached egg and cheese sprinkled over.
