White Bean and Vegetable Bowls with Frizzled Eggs

Photo: Hector Manuel Sanchez; Styling: Claire Spollen

Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups vegetable mixture and 1 egg)

This easy bowl of brothy goodness is loaded with both veggies and umami depth--it's comfort food you can feel good about. It's also great for times when the food budget is tight, as it costs only about $11 for 4 servings. One-bowl dinners are a great way to solve the "What's for Dinner?" question that strikes daily. This flavorful option offers up a vegetarian option. The eggs add great protein and staying power to the veggie-heavy dish. The ingredients are similar to what you find in a traditional chili, but the results are anything but. Grab a bowl and enjoy.
