Love to cook but intimidated by a long ingredient list?  I have just what you’re looking for – a complete, delicious  recipe with just five ingredients – thus, the Five Ingredient Dish.  This is also perfect for Cooking for One, but can easily be multiplied to feed a family.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s just decide that salt, pepper, and oil are not counted as ingredients.  Capish?  Bueno!  Let’s move on.

This is actually the second time I’m making and enjoying this recipe this week.  First time, I made it for breakfast.  Tonight, I had it for dinner.  Lunch next? 

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
5 mushrooms, diced (pick the variety you like)
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 zucchini, diced
salt & pepper to taste
2 eggs
1 tablespoon pesto

1.  Heat vegetable oil in a medium size sauté pan.  Add vegetables and sauté, stirring occasionally for 7-10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.  Season with salt and pepper.

2.  Carefully crack 2 eggs on top of vegetables.  Cover the pan with a lid and lower the heat.  Cook until the egg white is completely set and the egg yolk is still runny, about 4 minutes.
3.  Transfer the eggs and vegetables to a bowl.  You don’t have to worry about breaking the yolk in this recipe.  In fact, you want to break the egg yolk and mix the vegetables and the egg together – the egg creates a creamy, delicious sauce.

4.  Add pesto and mix again.  Time to eat!
