    1 medium-sized potato, skin on, thinly sliced
    2 cups (500 mL) broccoli florets, chopped
    2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach
    10 eggs
    1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves
    Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
    1 tsp (5 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
    1/3 cup (80 mL) feta cheese, crumbled

    Place potato in large, nonstick frying pan with an ovenproof handle and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add broccoli and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, about 2 minutes.

    Place spinach in a colander. Drain potatoes and broccoli in colander.

    Preheat broiler. Whisk eggs with oregano and season with salt and pepper.

    Heat oil in frying pan and set over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in eggs and add potato, broccoli, and spinach. Using a spatula, stir a few times to evenly distribute vegetables. Cook, without stirring, until eggs are well set around edges, about 2 minutes.

    Sprinkle with cheese; broil until eggs are set and cheese melts and starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

    Cut into wedges and serve.

    Beet Falafel Burgers with Dilly Tahini Sauce

    If a falafel and burger had a love child, this would be it. The result of this hybrid is a vibrantly coloured, complex-flavoured veggie burger you’ll flip over. You can also serve them between toasted hamburger buns with toppings such as sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, and arugula.  Holding it together Many plant-based burgers are crumbly and weak, risking a patty that ends up between the grill grates instead of intact on your plate. Keep your burgers together by forming patties no larger than 1 in (2.5 cm) thick, which ensures a nice, even crust on the outside and a thoroughly warmed-through centre, then chilling the patties before grilling. You can also consider using a burger mould, which gives you denser, equally sized patties that cook evenly. Be sure your grill grates are well greased.  Deep freeze You can freeze uncooked falafel burgers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate and then transfer frozen patties to an airtight container. When ready, just thaw and cook as instructed. Falafel cooking options To bake: Arrange falafel on parchment-lined baking sheet and brush lightly with oil; bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and heated through. To pan fry: Heat large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil (15 mL) for each 2 burgers in the pan, swirl to coat pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until underside is browned. Then flip carefully and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.
