This is a high protein (14 grams for the eggs plus 10 grams for the ricotta = 24 grams), very tasty egg dish. It was inspired by a recipe in Nigel Slater’s new book Notes from the Larder: A Kitchen Diary with Recipes (I could spend hours at a time reading this book by the way…it’s fabulous). This is an incredibly simple recipe: just whisk 2 eggs with 1/2 cup ricotta (store-bought or make your own and cook in a pan with a little butter until the eggs are as set as you like. I added a handful of baby spinach and a little fresh thyme while the eggs were cooking, too…very yummy with a little homemade hot sauce on top.

    It is a tasty gluten free yogurt that gives me a daily fiber dose deliciously. Mix in fresh pureed fruit ingredients, like pumpkin, unsweetened applesauce, or banana, for a delightful flavor and added nutrients.
