A versatile renal diet breakfast recipe to increase your intake of low potassium vegetables.
4 whole eggs
1 c cauliflower
3 c fresh spinach
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 c bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp oil of choice (coconut or avocado oil is good for high heat)
fresh parsley and spring onion for garnish
*optional tomatoes on side if no potassium restriction
Beat eggs with pepper until light and fluffy, set aside.
Heat oil over medium heat in large skillet.
Add onions and peppers to skillet and saute until peppers are translucent and golden.
Add garlic, stirring quickly to combine and immediately adding cauliflower and spinach.
Saute vegetables, turn heat to medium-low and cover for 5 minutes.
Add eggs, stirring to combine with vegetables.
When the eggs are cooked thoroughly, top with fresh parsley or spring onions. If no potassium restriction can serve with a side of bright fresh tomatoes topped with cracker black pepper. A touch of feta or a strong sharp cheese would also be delicious with these
This is a great basic recipe for increasing your vegetable intake! Other spices/herbs that would be delicious with this include herbs de provence, red pepper flakes, extra garlic, and basil. I also like a little of lemon juice with my eggs to bring out the flavors rather than using salt.
To reduce phosphorus further you can you 8 egg whites instead of egg yolks.
