If there’s something I don’t like to eat, that must be eggs. I stopped eating them at the age of 10, although I used to adore them before.
When I was a little girl, I’d go to sleepovers at my grandma’s, where she’d always make me some sunny-side up eggs, the way that made yolk melt.
My dad used to prepare an amazing omelet for me every other day, too.
Fast forward 20-something years, and situation is quite a bit different – not only that I don’t eat them - everything I usually prepare contains no traces of eggs. :)
I found a way to eliminate eggs from my diet, so my cooking workflow became more creative and resourceful.
Anyways, there’s a reason why I wanted to share this scrambled egg recipe.
These scrambled eggs are the only dish that contains eggs that I can eat, since the combination of vegetables and spices is very tasty, so for me it doesn’t feel like eating eggs.
Recipe can be used to prepare any meal of the day – be it breakfast, lunch or a nice treat for the dinner. :)
