Pepper, Tomato and Chilli Scrambled Egg

I love scrambled eggs in the morning; they’re quick to make, you can throw whatever you have into the mixture, they’re ready within a few minutes and they taste great. With that in mind, I’d like to share with you a recipe of my own that you can whip up in no time…

Now onto the recipe…

Pepper, Tomato and Chilli Scrambled Egg

IMG_5145 (4)

Serves one

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/4 bell pepper
A bunch of chives
1 chilli
A handful of cherry tomatoes
A handful of button mushrooms (or less if you prefer)
Oil (to fry)

To serve/garnish:
A few slices of cheese (optional)
A sprinkle of chive (optional)

NB: For the chive and chilli, add more if you want more flavour and less if you’d rather a milder taste. Optional: you can also add a tablespoon of diced onions to your scramble if you like. I chose not to for this particular recipe. 

Directions:

  1. On a chopping board, prepare the vegetables. Chop the peppers into small cubes. Dice up the chilli and chive. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and lightly beat them together using a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, on a medium to low heat, pour a tablespoon of oil into a frying pan and let it heat up.
  4. Add salt and pepper into the egg mixture, to taste.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the mushrooms and tomatoes) to the eggs and give it another light whisk.
  6. Begin by placing the onions (if using) into the pan and allowing to heat.
  7. Place the mushrooms into the pan and allow it to cook for a few minutes until it begins to soften.
  8. Then add the tomatoes and let it cook until the juices begin to come out.
  9. Now pour the egg mixture into the pan.
  10. Allow to stand by for a minute then stir the eggs and keep stirring to break it up.
  11. Turn the bits of eggs over to ensure they’re golden and cooked through.
  12. Serve hot with toast and sliced cheese.
  13. Enjoy!

NB: I like my eggs properly cooked so I tend to do my scrambled eggs a little differently. If you prefer, you can cook the eggs until just set but not golden.

I hope you try out this recipe and let me know what you think!

Xx. Nina.
