Comfort Cooking {broccoli white bean noodle pan}

Life turns out to be a bit messy, once again, but even in those times, someone needs lunch right? Right! And because my appetite comes and goes randomly right now, I seized the moment and jumped into our kitchen as soon as my stomach signalled "Food! asap!".

So this is perfect for: Quick, nutritious, colourful, yum and too lazy to do some 'serious' cooking. Comfort food all around. (Oh, and also for: when you don't have a lot in your fridge!)

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook some whole wheat noodles. While they cook,
  2. Throw together in a frying pan:
  • olive oil
  • half a broccoli (separate the little parts)
  • vegetable broth (powder)
  • curry
  • pepper

  1. (That's supposed to be a 3. but my writing program stubbornly places a 1. here. Oh well, let's move on cooking!) Fry your broccoli with the spices for a few minutes. 
  2. Than add some water and let your broccoli soften.  
  3. When all the water evaporated, add about three Tablespoon white beans
  4. While the beans warm up, beat together: 
  • 1 egg
  • a sip of milk
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 1 slice of cheese
  1. ...and pour the egg mixture over your broccoli and beans. 
  2. Add the noodles. Stir. And you're done!

Ha! And you do feel accomplished after you see that bowl of steaming warm food sit in front of you! (Optional: Add a dollop of cream cheese (It might be that I do that with everything. I simply love cream cheese I guess) and sprinkle with a bit of pepper and herb salt).
