Spinach Scramble with A Side of Steamed Veggies

Calories 14 kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 Whole egg
  • ¼ cup Green pepper (chopped)
  • ¼ cup Onion (diced)
  • cup Spinach (chopped)
  • ½ tablespoon Coconut oil
  • 3 Carrots
  • 1 Green zucchini

Instructions

Steamed vegetables

  1. Fill saucepan with 2-3 inches of water and bring to boil.
  2. Both carrots and zucchini will be sliced to ¼ inch thickness. Since carrots are a denser vegetable than the zucchini they will take an extra minute or two to steam. Because of this, I slice the carrots first and place them in the colander above the boiling water while I slice the zucchini. Add zucchini to the steaming carrots and mix them.
  3. Steam for 3-4 minutes or until desired softness is reached.
  4. Remove from heat and layer the plate with the steamed vegetables.

Spinach scramble

  1. Heat skillet greased with coconut oil on stovetop to medium heat (6/10 for electric stoves).
  2. While skillet is heating, chop spinach, onion, and green pepper if not done already.
  3. Sauté the chopped vegetables for a quick 2 minutes, using a spatula to move them around a time or two.
  4. Once sautéed, add the eggs over the vegetables and continue to flip until eggs are thoroughly cooked.
  5. Remove from heat and place spinach scramble on plate with steamed vegetables. Sit back and enjoy. You can thank me later.

Recipe Notes

Short on time? I always keep diced onions and bell peppers in containers in my freezer. This eliminates extra clean up and shortens prep time. All that is needed is a microwave to zap them for thirty seconds before adding to the skillet. This is also great to do with veggies or fruits that might be coming up to their prime which you won’t be able to eat them in time. Food for thought. Pun intended.
