I find scrambled eggs along with mushrooms and spinach a super creamy protein bomb that can be served in any moment of the day. I do prefer them mornings, though.
Saturday is the only day of the week when I really enjoy getting up very early and I hurry to the local farmer’s market to buy fresh muesli bread, eggs, spinach and other goodies. Every time I get the smell of this amazingly tasty German bread, I simply can’t resist it.
How could I when they have so many different varieties of whole-grained breads covered with several kinds of seeds?!
Germany produces more varieties of breads than any other country – over 200 varieties of dark and white bread and over 1.000 varieties of rolls and mini-breads (called Brötchen) – it’s literally part of the culture. For this recipe I went for whole-wheat croissants with sesame seeds, which have a divine touch of butter.
I like to sleep a minimum of 7 hours and prefer to avoid bread on a daily basis – so indulging with some tasty bread on the weekend is a bit of a ritual.
Eggs are an excellent source of protein providing also omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins B5, B2, B12, A and E and, on top of that, they keep you full for a longer time. So this super -creamy scrambled eggs recipe’s got a good balance of nutrients that our bodies need to function at their best. Don’t be afraid to use eggs, spinach and mushrooms a couple of times a week.
- 4 large eggs
- gouda cheese
- 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms, roughly chopped
- 1 green onion
- 1 shallot, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 cherry tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- a handful of fresh coriander
- sea salt and pepper to taste
- Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt combined. Then chop the prosciutto, Gouda and all veggies (spinach, mushrooms, green onions).
- To cook the eggs, add a splash of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Put in the bacon and shallot. Stir gently for about a minute and then add the whisked eggs to the pan. Add the rest of the veggies, such as spinach, mushrooms, green onions, fresh coriander and season them pepper to taste and keep stirring the mix on the pan.
Get creative, use the ingredients you have at hand and stay healthy! Make sure you only "cook it fit".
