Groene eieren met ham? Ik wil ze niet hier. Ik wil ze niet daar. Ik lust ze niet. Neem jij ze maar!

It's just plain nonsense.. If it were green in the sense of organic, it would be "Het biologische middageten"

Does 'green' mean 'natural' or 'organic' in Dutch - like it can in the US?

Vegetarisch* a vegetarian = een vegetariër, the vegetarian meal = de vegetarische maaltijd.
