As a dietitian, I’ve made sure that these recipes get in lots of vegetables and that they’re balanced in nutrition. Eggs are one of my favourite protein sources, and I go more in depth on their nutrition benefits below if you’re interested.
Many of these recipes can be enjoyed for any meal of the day – breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. I’d love to know which ones you end up making!
Egg Nutrition Benefits
There are so many reasons why eggs are one of my favourite protein sources. They’re easy to cook with, super versatile, delicious, affordable, AND packed with nutrition benefits.
A standard serving of 2 large eggs provides 13 grams of complete protein, which provides essential amino acids to build and repair our muscles, organs, and body tissues.
Protein also helps to slow digestion, meaning you’ll feel fuller for longer when including a quality source of protein in your meals and snacks. This is what makes these recipes so satisfying!
In addition to protein, eggs are rich in other essential micronutrients like:
- vitamin A
- vitamin D
- vitamin E
- vitamin B12
Did you know that eggs are even a source of antioxidants, like lutein and zeaxanthin?
What’s more – the fat content of eggs can help your body absorb any fat-soluble nutrients found in the rest of the meal (like in vegetables, for instance)!

- Heat a large pan over medium. Add olive oil and sauté chopped bell pepper for ~5 minutes.
- Add spinach to the pan, sautéing for about 1 minute until slightly wilted.
- Add tomato sauce, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, adjusting for taste. Cook for ~3 minutes, stirring regularly.
- Using the back of a spoon or spatula, make space in the sauce mixture to crack the eggs into. Next, sprinkle with crumbled cheese and cover pan with a lid.
- Let cook until egg whites are done (around 5-10 minutes), making sure not to overcook (you want the yolks to still be soft). NOTE: Keep an eye on the eggs at this point, as timing will differ depending on how deep your pan is, how hot your oven is, etc.
- Remove pan from heat, and sprinkle with fresh basil, cracked pepper, and an extra drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy hot and serve with a side of freshly toasted sourdough!
- Try using different greens instead of spinach, like kale or chard.
- Try using different veggies in place of red bell peppers – it’s a great way to use up anything going bad!
- Try experimenting with different spice combinations. One I particularly love is a mix of cumin, chili powder, and paprika.
- Omit the goat cheese (if dairy-free), or swap it with feta or parmesan.
- Try adding in freshly chopped onion or garlic for extra flavour.
- Use any type of canned tomatoes – tomato sauce, fire-roasted, strained, crushed, even harissa…they will all work!
