Vegetable-Egg Casserole with Soya chunks

I came to know about this great recipe at Show me the curry website. Myself and husband became a great fan of this  dish and we make this often. This is a simple recipe where you have to layer everything in a baking dish and then simply bake it. It's like a one pot meal, but only thing is you have to bake for 45 minutes. So plan a little bit, bake it ahead of your breakfast/dinner time and you can surely enjoy at your meal time. The original recipe can be found here.I always try to do variations from the original recipe.

Yesterday, I tried in a different way again. Actually, this was mine as well as my husband's idea..and a combined effort  in the kitchen from both of us. So half the credit goes to my husband :). We added soya chunks in this and it made the dish more tastier. We just loved it. It came so good that I couldnt wait to share with you all.

Please note: I used a 1.5 qt glass baking dish. This will serve 2-3 people.

Vegetable Egg Casserole

A Slice with a Smile...


4 slices Bread
3 Eggs
10-12 Soya chunks
1/4 cup Onion, finely chopped
1/2 of a Tomato, finely chopped
1/4 cup Capsicum, finely chopped
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Salsa
1/4 cup Cheese
few strands of Coriander leaves, finely chopped
I used some spaghetti (cooked and strained) as a layer.This is completely optional.


Egg mixture

Boil 1 cup water in a vessel. Add soya chunks and a little salt. Let it boil for 5 minutes.Remove from fire and keep it covered for 10 minutes. Drain the water and allow them to cool. Squeeze out the water from the soya chunks and keep them aside.

In a bowl, add the eggs, milk, salsa, coriander leaves, salt and pepper. Mix it well and the egg mixture is now ready.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Apply oil on all sides of a 1.5 qt baking dish.

Make the bread slices into cubes and place them on the bottom of the baking dish. You will get about 2 layers of bread. Now sprinkle the onions, tomatoes and capsicum on the bread. Slightly mash the soya chunks and put them over the vegetables.Now add the spaghetti as the next layer.

Layering in the baking dish.Just before adding cheese and egg mixture

Sprinkle cheese on top. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish.Gently press on the top and sides so that the egg mixture passes through all the layers till the bottom. Bake it for 45 minutes.

After adding cheese and egg mixture
Once baked, take it from oven and let it remain so for few minutes. Cut it and serve with salsa. You can have them without any dip also  as its extremely tasty. Enjoy the casserole.

*I used store bought Salsa. You can use homemade salsa.
*I didnt add any green chillies as the Salsa was Hot.
*You can replace Soya chunks with meat.
