Scrambled eggs and veggies for lunch? Heck yeah!
20 Apr 2020
As part of my journey to a healthier me, I have been experimenting with different recipes.
I love eggs, and omelettes are one of my favourite breakfast items. However, most mornings I have oatmeal to start my day.
So when can I have eggs? Lunch. I know, eggs are mostly looked at as a breakfast item. But really, they are great sources of protein and can do well any time of the day.
I have been making variations of this scrambled eggs recipe for a while now, and quite enjoy it. It is vegetarian, but still provides me with the necessary amounts of protein for the meal. They make a great post workout meal.
This started off as an omelette, but when I was flipping over the eggs one time, they broke up, so I just mixed it all together. Different experience, but still tastes the same.
Scrambled eggs and veggies
• 4 large eggs
• 1/2 cup mushrooms
• 1/2 cup onions
• 1/2 cup tomatoes
• 1/2 cup baby spinach
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 4 tbsps water
Dice onions and tomatoes. Chop spinach and mushrooms. I used sliced mushrooms, and decided to leave them as is.
In a non-stick frying pan, add water and balsamic vinegar. Sauté mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and spinach.
Once cooked to your liking, move veggies to the edges of the pan, creating a space in the middle.
Add eggs to this space. Fry eggs in the centre. As they start to cook, mix in the veggies. Add pepper. Cook until eggs are done.
Serve and enjoy!
If you notice, this recipe calls for no oil. I kept the veggies sautéing in the water and balsamic. The addition of pepper was all the flavour I need. If you are using a non-stick frying pan, the veggies shouldn’t stick.
