Paleo Smash

Sometimes you want to eat something that you know is going to be delicious... But, its 7pm, you've been at work all day, and then the gym, and then folded the washing, and answered your emails, and probably done a hundred other things in between, and you really [I mean REALLY] can not be bothered spending 45 minutes making something to eat. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love cooking, but some nights, I miss the convenience of being able to heat up a pasta snack.

Enter Paleo Smash. For the record, I definitely didn't invent this. I think probably every Paleo recipe book/blog has this on it. And to be honest, its become a bit of a staple. Because it really is a throw together. It is not only great for those nights you can't be bothered, but also for those ones when you don't have much left in the fridge and really should go to the supermarket [shifty eyes... that isn't me at all] Basically its a matter of grabbing whatever you want. My Smash usually goes a little something like this...

Dice up some bacon, capiscum, mushrooms, kumara [to save some time I totally microwaved my kumara for 2 minutes to pre-cook it... Smart right?] and anything else you fancy. I have added zucchini, pumpkin, tomato and all sorts of other bits and pieces! Add the bacon to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove the bacon and cook the veges using the left over bacon fat. Add everything back to the pan and cover. Cooking for 2-3 minutes. Crack 2 eggs over the veges. Cover and allow the steam to cook the eggs, usually for about 4-5 minutes, I like my eggs runny! Transfer from pan to plate, top with avocado and devour!

I'm telling you. It's quick, it's tasty and its totally nutritious!
