We all know boiled eggs are a wonderful source of protein and vitamins, but they can become a little dull after a while. If you’re looking for new ways to incorporate eggs into your diet, we have some splendid ideas!
You can marinate your eggs in nearly anything, but a tasty option is a simple soy marinade. Boil 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons mirin, and half a cup of soy sauce with a dash of sesame oil and a teaspoon of red pepper flakes, as well as five peeled and minced garlic cloves. This mixture should be simmered for half an hour, then you can place the peeled eggs in the cooled mixture and leave it in the fridge overnight. You’ll end up with delightfully flavoured eggs to eat as is or to slice and add to toast.
The addition of mustard and mayonnaise or avocado and lime to chopped boiled eggs makes a wonderful sandwich spread. Add in some chopped herbs of your choice to create a delightful mixture that can be used on bread, bagels, and croissants.
Most people are familiar with this simple party food. It only requires cutting the egg in half lengthwise and then scooping out the yolk to mix with any of a number of condiments. Often, this includes mayonnaise, paprika, and mustard to create a tasty filling that is then piped back into the eggs. However, you may choose to use other flavours instead or to add dill, green onion, etc.
Eggs and Beans on Toast
An old favourite gets a new look when you top your beans on toast with slices of boiled egg. This is a good way to add some extra protein to your toast. If you prefer, chop the egg lightly before adding to your toast, atop the beans.
Add to Salads
Cobb salads famously feature boiled eggs, but you can add a chopped egg to nearly any type of salad for a boost in flavour and nutrition. This can be a fun way to increase the amount of eggs in your diet without getting bored, as you can use whatever ingredients you like in the salad. Add a nice splash of vinegar and you have a delightful lunch in no time.
