Veggie brunch

Many of us have the misconception that vegetarian food cannot be delicious and is only eaten because it’s good for your health and for many years, I was of the same notion. My parents made sure that I and my siblings always ate our share of the veggies on the table which is a practice I continue to this day. While some veggies were fine, some were not so good but we had to eat it as it was healthy. Over the years, I have started to appreciate the taste of each vegetable, some sweet, some sour, some bitter. Each one of them provides a unique taste which when put together, can become delicious food. This recipe is perfect for a quick brunch and can be made relatively quickly. The soft boiled eggs are the icing on the cake and is a perfect compliment to the veggies. The crushed peanuts give the much needed crunch in this quick-fire brunch dish!

  1. Great recipe. I totally agree vegetarian or vegan doesn’t have to be dull or boring. Sometimes great food just happens to be meat free.
