Our chickens recently started laying eggs (one of them has anyway.)Quiche and omlette appear on our menu at home often. They are quick, easy and healthy.
I have been pondering new egg recipes since the chooks started laying. It is a particular challenge for me as my 18 month old (Cuddles) really dislikes egg so I will be pulling out all stops to come up with something he will eat.
Last week I was lucky enough to attend the re-launch of David’s Prahran. David’s has an emphasis on fresh, simple ingredients inspired by a rural Shanghai town on the river. When he spoke he described his food as home-cooked simple food like his mum cooked (who was at the restaurant for dinner!) This is reflected beautifully both in the decor and the food.
One of the dishes I tasted for the first time at David’s was Spiced Oolong Tea Quail Eggs with bean curd. I love to try new food, and it was a really interesting (in a good way) flavor. They looked like green olives in the bowl so I was surprised when I bit into the soft egg and realised that it was not an olive. Very more-ish!
Thanks to David I also have 6 quail eggs and a recipe for Spiced Oolong Tea Eggs to make next. Quail eggs, as with chicken eggs, are reported to be a good source of “..Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Iron and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Protein, Riboflavin and Selenium” (Reference). I wonder if Cuddles would eat one of those?
Do you have a favorite egg recipe? I would love to hear what it is.
