Tuesday Eggs is inspired by a traditional Mexican ingredient, CACTUS! Stick with me, Cactus (aka Nopales) is good guys. If you dig okra there’s a high likelihood you’re gonna dig cactus too. It has a slightly vegetal taste but overall it’s muted. Be forewarned, just like okra it can be a bit slimy.
Heaping Mass of Mushrooms
Fresh Cactus/Nopales (Safeway has this on the regular)
Rutabaga (it’s like if a onion and potato made a baby, tastes like oniony-potato)
Slice those mushrooms and get them cooking, render away the water and get a nice color on those puppies
Toss in the rutabaga, If I’m making omelettes I like to shred mine with a box grater
After the rutabaga has had a few minutes to sweat down, add the cactus and cook until all those ingredients have softened
Be sure to salt and pepper all that stuff to taste
Whip up some guacamole for garnishing later
Eggs - I happened to make omelettes, but prepare the eggs however you like. Scrambled with all that pre-cooked veggie mixed in or make a spanish-style omelette (tortilla) or maybe a quiche!
