Here we have a quick dish fit for breakfast or brunch and should you want to be creative and add some cabbage or noodles, it can easily be a guest on your dinner table. Like the leftover ham I used, it’s also a great opportunity to clear your fridge of vegetables (mushroom, zucchini, bell peppers, carrots.. be as creative as you like).
2-3 cups diced Ham
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups assorted bell peppers (rough chopped)
2 scallions (chopped)
1 medium onion (sliced)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon mushroom Soy sauce
2 tablespoon chopped parsley
4 sprigs thyme (leaves only)
Notes! May I recommend that you follow along with the video below as much more is discussed about the recipe there. Especially what other ingredients you may add to this dish.
Prep the ingredients as this is a very quick dish to put together.
Heat the oil in a wide pan on a medium flame and add the diced ham (cut it as large as you like). Cook for 3-4 minutes to render out some of the fat and in doing so, flavor the oil with the smokey flavor of the ham.
If you find that it’s starting to stick to the bottom of the pan, turn the heat down to low. After which you’ll add all of the other ingredients (except the parsley), stir well and cook on medium low.
Stir well and cook until the peppers are tender to your liking. Should you want to add a crushed garlic clove or a bit of heat with Scotch Bonet or your fav spicy pepper, now would be the time to do so.
Five minutes later and it’s time to taste for salt and adjust to your liking. As explained in the video I didn’t add any salt as the ham and the soy sauce were enough to season this dish for me. As you turn off the stove, toss in the parsley and stir.
Served with eggs of your choice and toast.. It’s as simple as that!
