Tuscan Scrambled Eggs

Eggs are a great source of protein, making them a wonderful dish to have for breakfast. Scrambled eggs with some butter or coconut oil and a dash of salt is just fine, but adding a little bit extra makes the dish sensational. When I was little my mom would make me scrambled eggs with some leftover steamed cauliflower which is so delicious. But I never thought of anything else, apart from chives going into it, until I went to Trinidad to visit my very close friend. Her mother made me Perico, a Venezuelan scrambled egg dish and that dish which is delicious inspired me to make this dish. 

This scrambled egg dish, that you will soon learn to make, is a great way to get some veggies into your tummy. The flavours meld together and elevate the scrambled eggs – so delicious!
