Snowy BZC Combo or Snow covered Broccoli, Zucchini and Corn

To go with the Burgers we had the other night, we needed a vegetable dish. If it was completely up to me, I reckon the tomatoes and lettuce in the burgers were enough vegetables. The Lovely Wife however, had other ideas. She offered to make a salad but I thought that would just be more tomato and lettuce. So instead, I decided to stir fry a combination of Broccoli, Zucchini and Corn.

Now where in the world did the idea for snow come from? Well, I must admit it was an afterthought when I saw how nice it looked. You see, I had some extra egg white from the Portuguese Egg Tarts I made and so rather than keep them for another day, I opted to throw them into this dish. The result, as you can see, is small specks of white that look like snow!

This is what I did.

3 cloves garlic - chopped
2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp basil
2 zucchini - julienned
1 Broccoli - cut into small florets
1 can corn
2 egg whites

Fy the garlic with rosemary and basil. Add in the broccoli and zuchinni and cook till just tender but still a little crunchy. Add in the corn and stir well. Season with salt. Add in the egg whites and quickly stir everything together to break up the whites to form the small specks of 'snow'.

The Lovely Wife and the kids enjoyed this vegetable dish. In particular, both the kids loved the corn. I have to admit that I loved the corn too! My princess was excited to learn that there was egg in the dish as she just loves egg but was a little disappointed that there was no runny yolk - another thing that she takes after Daddy.

All in all, a very simple yet tasty dish and eye pleasing too.

This to me is a show stopper Dharm! That is going on my table as soon as I'm home, ok as soon after I can get broccoli, zucchini and corn in the fridge.

I like all these separate but never have had combined, will have to try that. Thanks!

PS do pickles count as vegetables too?

Except that I've broken up with winter and can't eat anything with the word snow in the title - I like this idea very much!

Excellent side dish! The addition of the egg white is brilliant and really makes a simple stir fry very special and showy. I like the runny yolks, too, but the whites are much healthier.
