In an effort to mix up our eating a bit, we’ve been making a lot more eggs for breakfast – for dinner too, really. The other day we had a ton of eggs and I didn’t have a dinner plan, so I whipped this delicious egg scramble up. It was so colorful with all the yummy veggies and it was really quite hearty too. It was so good, I’ve made it several more times, using whatever veggies we have on hand, so you can get creative!
Veggie Egg Scramble
8 large eggs
1 cup cubed butternut squash
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped white or red onion
1 cup cubed zucchini
2 cups chopped spinach
3 or 4 T feta cheese
In a large skillet, add about 1 T of oil, whatever you like to use. We’ve recently started using coconut oil. I was worried that the flavor might be too strong for my taste, but it’s not. I don’t even notice it once it is cooked.
Add the onions, red bell peppers and butternut squash. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the top and cook until the butternut squash is slightly softened. Add the zucchini and cook a bit more and then add the chopped spinach and cook for just a couple minutes, it will wilt down quite a bit. While the veggies are finishing up, start cracking the eggs into a bowl and mix with a fork. Pour over the top of the veggies and stir. Cook until the eggs are ready. Sprinkle the feta cheese over the top of the cooked eggs and give it one more stir. That’s it. This makes 4 servings. We served ours with toast and avocado and a bit of green salsa. Enjoy!
