Not only are broccoli and spinach loaded with essential B vitamins and electrolytes, but the very eggs themselves are packing a secret weapon: cysteine, an amino acid needed to break down acetaldehyde, a toxic byproduct your body metabolizes from alcohol.
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon milk or cold water, optional
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 cup of raw spinach
- 1/2 – 1 ounce cheese, such as feta or cheddar, grated, chopped or thinly sliced
In a small bowl, lightly beat together eggs and milk or water.
In a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add broccoli and cook until tender, salting and peppering as you go. Add spinach and cook until just wilting.
Add egg mixture and let cook without stirring. As the omelet begins to set, pull it back from the edge of pan with a spatula, letting uncooked egg mixture runs onto the pan surface. When the omelet is almost set, sprinkle with cheese, remove the pan from the heat and cover, letting it sit until the cheese melts. (Or you can pop it under the broiler for a sec, if you’re feeling up to it.)
Serves 1 or 2, depending on whether a hangover makes you ravenous or queasy.
