John Sielke's Veggie & Egg Mix

Posted by: John Sielke - - May 8, 1996

1 large egg
2 tbs. low fat ricotta cheese
1/2-1 cup bean mix (cooked up previously, mix of beans, rice, pasta, etc)
1/2 cup of some or all of the following: diced fresh zucchini, diced yellow squash, diced turnip, diced parsnip, cooked sweet potato, chopped spinach, fresh corn, chopped green pepper. also, in season, a whole jalapeno pepper, chopped. if lacking fresh veggies, use frozen corn, lima beans, peas, etc. if we have leftover pasta, that goes in, too, and finally one large clove garlic, chopped.

Mix in a bowl, then spread on a large plate, covered, and microwave for 7-8 minutes (8 if using frozen veggies). The egg holds it together. Then I usually grate a LITTLE Monterey Jack Cheese on it, and serve to the guys (Above makes 9 servings, Macaws get 2 Tbl. each, smaller guys get 1 to 1 1/2 tbs.)
