Vegetables Stuffed Egg Wrap - Vegetables Stuffed Omelette Burrito - Breakfast on the Go!

Eggs are perfect for breakfast and they make a great sandwich filling. Even vegetarians give a passing grade to eggs. They came in handy for packing lunches and kids don't complain too much when eggs are on the menu.

We don't have Cable TV or satellite TV and that means I don't get to see my favorite Food Network all the time. I happened to catch a cooking show in the morning one day when I saw Bobby Flay talking about breakfast on the go. Very similar to the Bengali version of the egg wrap - Kati Roll. He spooned some cooked sausage on to the omelette and then rolled it into the tortilla and some tasty breakfast was ready. Seemed like a perfect meal for a busy morning.

Good way to use some of the bit and pieces of vegetables you have to use this is a perfect way to use them. I used zucchini you can easily use mushrooms, cabbage or even minced green means and carrots. As for the wrap I used home made chapathi or you can use store bough tortillas.

Prepare the vegetables for the filling. Make the omelette and keep it ready.
Use a ready made wrap or a home made flat bread like chapathi. Sprinkle cheese on the omelette and when it melts add the vegetables.
Roll the omelette in a tube and place it on the wrap and roll it.
Place a wax paper and roll into a ready to go breakfast :)

Apple Blossom

It is Spring! Though a fairly warm and dry one in our parts. Spring means the trees around her are full of blossoms. I did not realize how pretty an apple blossom can be.

Quick Roasted Cauliflower - In the toaster oven

These one meal bowls have become a favorite around our house, more for me because they are easy and require no special prep work. To make it extra special it is good to have a few topping up your sleeve as well.

This quick roasted cauliflower is nothing fancy but they are great to do in a toaster oven if you do not want to fire up your big oven and heat up the whole house. Also once this goes in the oven it pretty much cooks itself.

Pat dry the cauliflower florets and toss them with oil, spices and salt.
Broil in a toaster oven for about 10 minutes on either side.

The lovely roasted cauliflower can be topping for a bowl meal or a filling for a sandwich or just an enjoyable snack.
