Sunny Scalloped Eggs & Broccoli (or Silverbeet)

Sunny Scalloped Eggs & Broccoli (or Silverbeet) - Quirky Cooking
This is an easy, light meal that is handy for using up all that lovely fresh broccoli or silverbeet that’s in season right now. We like it for lunch, as it’s got lots of protein from the eggs and the broccoli/silverbeet, and protein is very helpful for keeping you awake and energised! We’re dairy free, so I make my own rice & almond milk, which saves us lots of money, but you could use regular milk if preferred. We’re getting lots of eggs from our chickens right now as well, so all round, this is and very inexpensive meal for us. Serve with raw veggie sticks.
