Food & Home: Lunch Recipe: A vegetable scramble

I don't really like eggs at all. Well, ok I like them a few ways (in a chocolate cake) but I never think- "I'd really like to eat some eggs today." However, my husband eats them regularly and sometimes when he's banging around in the kitchen I look over his shoulder and think "that's not a bad idea." So here's my healthy vegetarian lunch that's not a salad, inspired by my husband's daily omelets.

Chop some vegetables of your choice: broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, red peppers and carrots.

Find a vegetable burger of some kind. (for this I like the vegetable marsala burgers from TJ's because the indian spice & potatoes give it a substantial flavor and filling) Toast the burger until golden & ready.

Now this is completely unorthodox... just the way I like to do it since I'm not an egg eater. I crack an egg on the bottom.

Throw the veggies and chopped up veggie burger in with a little sprinkle of cheese.

crack an egg on top. Salt, Pepper and scramble.

The reason I like to do it this way is because when you scramble eggs and then add the veggies, the egg becomes the main ingredient, but in this, it's like the egg serves as an equal component in the dish.

Cook until eggs are fluffy but solid.


Garnish with Sour Cream, Cilantro and Salsa Verde (or tomatillos).

And for the Southern girl, add a little texas pete.

Easy, quick and pretty good for you.
