I hate yogurt!

24 Mar

When I think of Spaceballs, the main things I remember are the line “I hate yogurt!”(Yogurt being Yoda) and that they go plaid speed.

Fashion and food. All that really stuck with me. I am a very deep individual.

Oh, wait now I am remembering Pizza the Hut.

Food again.

My first memory after I had brain trauma was food too. Egads.

Oh, wait, yogurt. Sorry.

I do strongly dislike it. But it can be used for good instead of evil in baked goods and being as such I bought some to make banana bread. Then was faced with trying to decide what to do with the remainder.
So I called my lover for help.
That’s Ellen-glish for “I consulted How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman”.

He told me to make the Indian-style Omelet and I agreed, but only if I could keep the lights on.

Indian-style Omelet (Ever-so-slightly-altered from Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian)
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. milk
freshly ground black pepper
olive oil spray
1/4 c. yogurt
1 cup spinach
1/4 tsp. cumin + small amounts of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and fennel-I am pretty particular about these spices and so are lots of folks so use more of what you like, and less of what you don’t
1 oz. diced reduced-fat swiss cheese
Heat that yogurt over medium-low, then add the spinach, spices, salt and pepper(grind that shiz-nit fresh, fo realz). Cook until spinach is wilted then add cheese. It would be more Indian if you have paneer but since we don’t all have fresh cheese at the ready…and by we I mean me.
Set aside.
Spray skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper(yes, freshly ground). Pour into skillet and make an omelet however suits your fancy. Just be sure to put your yogurt-spinach mixture down the middle before you fold it or roll it.
