Veggie Egg Cocotte

Veggie Egg Cocotte

This is by far the easiest recipe to make and you don't really need a recipe for it.

How to make a cocotte without a recipe:

You can just use whatever veggies you have lying around in the fridge, anything from tomatoes to zucchinis. Chop them into small pieces and place them in the oven-proof ramequins. You may add some tomato sauce, cream, feta or goat cheese, you can stir in your favourite herbs, a drizzle of olive oil and finally brake an egg onto each. Then bake.

It takes no more than a few minutes to chop and prep, and about 10 to cook. You can make this for lunch, dinner or as a pretty side dish to compliment a larger meal.

Saffron & Lemon Cod Filet

This is a really easy and quick way to make a very tasty protein. In this recipe I used a fish because it absorbs the flavours very nicely, but you could use the same marinade on chicken if you prefer so.  It will be delicious either way! However, if you decide to do this recipe with chicken instead, I would suggest marinating it for longer, the longer the tastier it will be.
