Cabbage breakfast hash

Apparently, I've been on a bit of a cabbage kick lately. I made this recipe a few times in the not so distant past, and created a few versions. Actually, they're pretty much the same, but one has eggs. See:

This recipe is of course part of my easy, healthy recipes trend so of course it was necessary to prepare it during the paleo challenge. I think I must have offered my husband this as a work lunch at least once a week. Topped off with some sriracha and some chili flakes - this can really hit the spot as a hot and spicy lunch. With slightly less heat, I found it to be a delicious breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 6 roma tomatoes 
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 2 chicken breasts (swap for 1 cup chickpeas if you're not a meat eater)
  • 1 small head of green cabbage thinly sliced 
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup water 
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or another oil of choice) 

Spices
  • 1 tablespoon paprika powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic pepper 
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon 
  • 1 tablespoon dried coriander 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut up chicken breasts into small pieces (you can also swap the breasts for leftover shredded chicken) 
  • Pan fry uncooked chicken on a heated skillet with coconut oil
  • In the meanwhile, chop up tomatoes, cabbage and onion 
  • After the chicken is golden brown, add the onion 
  • After the onion is translucent, add the tomatoes, spices, and water

  • Bring to a boil then simmer, covered with a lid, for 10-15 minutes 
  • Add the cabbage then put the lid back on and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the cabbage is soft

You could stop here for version I or you continue with these steps: 
  • Remove the lid, crack the eggs into the pan. If all of the water is gone, add four tablespoons of water
  • Cover and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked enough for your preferences 
  • Serve with thinly sliced chives and enjoy!

For now, this will be it as far as cabbage recipes go. At least for a little bit. I didn't even realise how much my family loved it until recently.  We should be getting some kale from the garden soon though and I think that would be a lovely replacement for a while! Plus, I bet you folks are getting a bit tired of seeing so many cabbage dishes on here. They're oh so good though! I couldn't resist sharing!
