I would not, could not, in a box.
I could not, would not, with a fox.
I will not eat them with a mouse.
I will not eat them in a house.
I will not eat them here or there.
I will not eat them anywhere.
I do not eat green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
- From Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
I like them!
Green Eggs and Ham is one of Dr. Seuss’ most well known books and it is one of our favorites as well. But what are Green Eggs and Ham anyway? I've seen tons of culinary interpretations of it, but let's be honest, the thought of squeezing green dye in eggs just sounds totally gnarly to me!
This recipe is my healthy version of Green Eggs and Ham. Feel free to use either regular ham or prosciutto, one of Kenya's favorite foods. Just a little bit adds tons of flavor to this dishes (and makes it a wee bit more gourmet).
The next time you're trying to get your kids to eat green foods like spinach, read them this book and then whip them up a batch of green eggs and ham!
