Meal and a Melody: Veggie Omelette and Sango
Anytime I think of brunch, I think of a nice warm day, eating a beautiful omelette with some amazing orange juice, a nice breeze and some Sango playing in the background. Something about the combination of a semi-Western Omelette and Brazilian sounds makes me giddy inside. I decided to pair the two because Sango's music gives me a warm feel and the colors of this omelette compliment the sounds. Every Saturday I cook a big breakfast for my family and sometimes make dishes such as these, but this day in particular, I cooked for a good friend of mine, Marvy, who is also a fellow creative/entrepreneur. She is an awesome actress, event host and media maven. It was a good day to bond, chat about life, dreams, and goals. Our faith is what brought us together and many times we find ourselves encouraging one another on what God has called us to do. This brunch was the perfect thing I could do to make her feel welcomed in my home and to be free to talk about the ups and downs of being a creative in today's society. I'm glad to say that she loved the food! The omelette IS pretty amazing if I do say so myself. Below I've given detailed instructions on how to prepare it. Let me know how it turns out for you!
Baby Bella Mushrooms
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Crushed Garlic
Ham (I used Black Forest Ham from Trader Joe’s)
Coat the pan with the coconut oil and put the heat on medium high. I then added all of the vegetables and onions and sauteed for a good 5-8 mins or at least until veggies are to your liking.
Season with crushed garlic, salt, and pepper.
While veggies are cooking, beat the eggs and add salt and pepper.
Add eggs to the pan once the veggies are the way you like them.
Spread the eggs around in the pan until the veggies are completely covered.
Cook for about 3-5 mins. Check the sides to see if it’s ready to be folded, then fold one side over.
Cook for another 3-5 mins.
Carefully slide omelette out of the pan onto a plate. Eat up!!
The recommended album for brunch, by Sango, is North. The mood of the project is Brazilian,chill, electronic, hip-hop instrumentals aka, Dope Stuff. This album also has a feature by Xavier Omar who is another dope artist who just dropped a project with Sango. I'll be featuring that album in another post, so look out for it. You can find North on Bandcamp
