"Similar combinations of vegetables include:

sofrito in Spanish (Spain), olores (onions, celery, garlic, and bell pepper)
in Costa Rican Spanish, refogado (braised onions, garlic and tomato)
in Portuguese, soffritto (onions, garlic and celery) in Italian,
Suppengrün (soup greens)
in German and soepgroente
in the Netherlands (usually purchased in bundles and consisting of a leek, a carrot and piece of celeriac),
holy trinity (onions, celery and bell peppers) in Cajun and Creole cooking,
and włoszczyzna in Polish, and typically consists of carrots, parsnips, parsley root, celery root, leeks, cabbage leaves, and sometimes celery and flat-leaf parsley. "

And...for my own memory, I need to put the whole Turtkletalk recipe right in front of my face,

My nutritionist tells me that I need to eat more in the morning so I am going to give it a try. This morning I came up with a very high protein, yummy new breakfast option that came in at 279 calories. I added 2 whole grain wasa crisps to round out my just under 400 calorie breakfast.

1/2 cup frozen mirepoix vegetables (celery, onions, peppers)
1/2 cup rinsed black beans
1 whole egg
1 egg white,
1 small chopped tomato
2 T. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
I cooked the vegetables, tomato and beans for about 5 minutes in a sprayed non-stick pan. In a bowl I whipped together the egg, egg white, and a bit of ground black pepper. I poured the eggs over the vegetables and stirred until the eggs were set then topped it all with 2 T cheese. It was yummy and should keep me going for several hours.

I wish I had taken a picture but I was hungry by the time I finished cooking so I didn't think of a picture until it was gone. emoticon --from Chris--thanks for posting this. Sounds like a very filling and yummy breakfast!

    I actually had this again this morning for breakfast with half a whole grain bagel. It was still delicious.

    The first time I saw this on a cooking show I was surprised--it was so intuitive that I had always done it!!

    Sounds yummy. I make a very similiar breakfast, trading out the beans for Spinach, and have one slice of a low carb/calorie, light style, 7 grain toast for only 45 calories a slice.

    That sounds so good. I make a frittata very much like this but I omit the beans and add spinach. I understand the beans for protein but can't face them in the morning, lol!
