Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
Another original Lola recipe this time. I rarely come up with recipes of my own and usually prefer to tweak recipes that I find online. I basically came up with this when I was looking for new couscous recipes and I was thinking of egg, bean sprouts and then decided to add some red bell pepper. It doesn’t take long to prepare and it’s really good. There are also many options to vary with this recipe, from using different spices or different veggies. I really like this dish as it doesn’t require to stand too long in the kitchen and you have a yummy dinner. And I just love finding ways to add egg to my dinner.
- Red bell pepper – 3
- Bean Sprouts – 250 gram/ 2 1/2 cup
- Couscous – 200 gram/ 1 cup and 3 tablespoons
- Eggs – 6
- Bouillon cube – 1
- Water – 1 cup/ 250 ml and more for the couscous
- Salt (optional)
- Olive Oil
You also need a colander. This recipe makes enough for about 4 people.
- First slice and dice the red bell pepper in tiny pieces.
- Heath some oil in a pan or wok and once it’s warm add the red bell pepper and bake for about 5 minutes. In the meantime you can break the eggs and with a fork scramble them in a bowl. Add a bit of salt (optional). After the five minutes add a cup of water ad the bouillon cube to the red bell pepper and add the bean sprouts as well. Let these cook in the meantime.
- Then cook some water and add it to the couscous. Let is stand for 10 minutes. In the meantime heat some oil in another pan and bake the scrambled egg in a pan.
- Once everything is done, you drain the water from the veggies in a colander.
- Assemble the ingredients on your plates and enjoy!
- Vary with veggies. You can also use any other veggies of choice for this one, think of carrots, beans or corn.
- Spice the veggies. Add some soy sauce or chili sauce or any other sauce or spices you prefer to the veggies to give them some more flavour.
- Spice the couscous. To give the couscous a bit more flavour add some curry powder to the couscous or a bouillon cube or any other spices you like.
- Add soy sauce and sambal to the egg. To give this dish a different flavour add some soy sauce and sambal to the eggs before baking them. About 2 tablespoons soy sauce and two teaspoons of sambal per 6 eggs.
