Add some EGGnicity this Heritage Month
After months of not being able to socialise at home, Heritage Day and month has been appreciated like never before – families in kitchens around the country, whipping up delicious salads and sides while the meat sizzles outside on the braai.
As South Africans we all know how to make a standard green salad but as a rainbow nation it’s in our essence to keep everything as colourful as possible! Add some extra tradition, and colour, with a zingy chakalaka bean salad topped with boiled eggs – and of course, one could never leave out the traditional potato and egg salad!
What would shisha nyama be without pap – but you might not want to be stirring the pot while everyone else is having fun? Why not add your spin on tradition by making a batch of pap and egg cups which can be prepared the day before, stored in the fridge and simply re-heated before serving – leaving you free to socialise.
You’ll also be glad to hear that adding eggs to your heritage day has loads of great benefits besides just being delicious. Eggs have a high protein content which is excellent for the family’s health and they are also a great substitute for more expensive proteins, an added bonus for the pocket!
So go on; add some EGG-stra eggs to your Heritage Day.
