Mish-Mash is a vegetarian Bulgarian egg dish. It is very quick and convenient for those who lack time. The original recipe includes only roasted peppers, tomatoes, cheese and eggs, but as you all know- I like to play around with recipes and develop my one. Eggs have always been one of my favourite foods and I consider them as a “superfood” because of their nutritious profile as well as their importance in many meals. Poached, hard-boiled, scrambled, fried- there are countless variations of ways how to cook eggs, but every single one is delicious.
Mish-mash is usually served as a breakfast or lunch in Bulgaria, but to be honest- I can eat it whenever. It can also be served as a main dish or a side one. It is one of the most emblematic dishes throughout the country, but the recipe I developed is far from the original one. However, I believe that you would enjoy it!
- 3 egg whites
- 10g Delishu Dried Tomato and Oregano
- 1 large red/green pepper, baked and peeled
- 1/2 tomato, peeled
- 50g sugar-free soy yogurt
- 40g curd (Vedrare)*
- 35g lutenitsa **
- Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
*I am aware that this is not available throughout the UK, but you can always substitute it with fat-free cottage cheese.
** I have seen this in Asda, but if you still cannot find it- you can use your favourite tomato-based pasta sauce.
- Roast the red peppers in the oven and peel them afterwards. (If you don’t have the time to do it, they sell roasted peppers everywhere)
- in a skillet, put a bit of coconut oil and add the peppers.
- Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the tomato, egg whites and soy yogurt.
- Scramble and stir continuously until cooked.
- Pour the mixture in a plate.
- Top with the lutenitsa and the curd as well as some mixed herbs.
- While it’s still hot, add the Delishu vegan cheese to give it a chance to melt on top.
