5 confinement dishes that you can easily cook with eggs
Article by Cherlynn Ng
Eggs are a staple for any diet, and even more so if you are a postpartum mama. Not only do they promote the development of new cell tissues and speed up your healing process, eggs are also rich in Vitamin D that can help increase calcium absorption. They are highly adaptable and can be cooked in numerous ways, such that even those who are beginners in the kitchen can whip up something tasty. Here are five confinement recipes for you to try out!
1. Ginger and egg fried rice
Sesame oil is used in place of normal cooking oil for this savoury dish, which can easily be prepared in less than 20 minutes according to some recipes. Ginger makes an effective ingredient for warming the body and expelling wind, as well as stimulates breast milk production. You can also add in chicken and vegetables for a dose of iron and vitamins, making this a balanced and delectable all-one-one dish! However, note that this is a heaty dish.
2. Vinegar pork trotters with egg
No postpartum diet is complete with this classic! Pork trotters in black vinegar are so closely associated with a mum’s confinement period that they are akin to ‘a horse and a carriage’ (an idiom that expresses how two things go well together).
This popular dish consists of all the ‘wonders’ of confinement meals such as eggs, ginger, sesame oil and black vinegar. Many believe that black vinegar has multiple health benefits such as purifying the body, stabilising pH levels, improving digestion and boosting energy levels. Meanwhile, pork trotters are full of collagen, which gives you strong bones and beautiful skin.
3. Chinese ginger wine soup with sesame oil and egg
This mouth-watering dish is packed full of goodness from the same power foods — in broth form. For extra energy, throw in some mee sua. It can be easily prepared in less than 15 minutes and will leave you feeling refreshed, making it the ultimate comfort food for when you are stuck indoors due to fatigue or bad weather.
4. Tofu with silky egg sauce
A hot favourite that will take only around 20 minutes to rustle up, this dish will load you up with all the protein that your body needs for a swift recovery. Those seeking some extra variety and vibrancy can consider adding prawns, minced pork or cube vegetables into the mix. Drizzle the gravy over some rice and you are good to go!
5. Hard-boiled eggs
Lastly, let’s not forget the simple yet iconic hard-boiled egg. Practically effortless to make, they are an awesome and filling snack. You can also have them on toast, with salad and more. Get creative because that’s the beauty of eggs — yummy, versatile and uncomplicated.
