Something that Scott and I love to eat for dinners together when we get the chance is stir fry’s. We usually have a ton of veggies in the house because I love to roast a bunch of different kinds of veggies together for dinners on my own.
The other night we had a stir fry. It had carrots, bell peppers, corn, broccoli, basmati rice, green and yellow beans, and some chicken for Scott.
I usually also add zucchini but the ones at the store weren’t looking too fresh.
We had tons leftover (one of the best parts of making huge stir fry’s!) so we made up a container of leftovers for Scott, and I had some leftover veggies for me.
There weren’t too many veggies leftover for me, and since I have been wanting to up my protein intake I decided to make a veggie egg scramble for breakfast the next day.
I’ve had lots of veggie omelettes, but never a veggie scramble before!
I see people posting pictures of their scrambles, but I don’t eat a ton of eggs, so I don’t usually play around with them.
I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy the scramble, but it was really good!
And crazy filling! I almost couldn’t finish it, but since it was so tasty, I did 😉
The veggie egg scramble
- I took a pan and melted some margarine.
- Once the margarine was melted I put in the leftover veggies to heat up.
- I had 3 whole eggs that needed to be used up.
- I scrambled those in a bowl with salt, pepper and a bit of garlic powder.
- Once the veggies were nicely heated I poured the egg mixture into the pan.
- I just scrambled it up like I would with any scrambled eggs and mixed everything together.
- Once the eggs were cooked up with the veggies I put it all in a bowl with some Frank’s hot sauce and ketchup.
I was stuffed!
Maybe it was because there were 3 whole eggs in the scramble, or the fact that there was a ton of protein in this breakfast.
Either way, this breakfast was delicious and so filling!
I can’t wait to make this again, and experiment with other veggies and flavors!
