I’ve discovered its nigh on impossible to make a photo of scrambled eggs look pretty, so lets concentrate on the taste, hey? I wasn’t an egg eater until I was a mum – There is no easier meal to give your toddler for lunch than scrambled eggs. In the early days of parenthood, I wasn’t capable of making separate meals for me, so quickly gave into scrambled eggs. It was such a revelation that the girls devoured eggs – They love being able to ‘help’ make them by whisking and adding the milk too.
Of course, I couldn’t stick to just plain eggs and have spent many years fiddling about with various combinations. When Happy Eggs challenged me to share how I eat my Scrambled Eggs, I had no trouble finding a recipe.
My ultimate favourite is Soy Scrambled Eggs with plenty of veg and a bit of a kick of chilli – My girls have always tended to err on the side of plain eggs but Tara is definitely one for the strong tastes and loves this meal.
Super Spicy Soy Scrambled Eggs
Serves 2 (1 adult & 1 child)
Knob of butter
1/4 small onion or 1 spring onion
1/2 red pepper
4 chestnut mushrooms
Sprinkling of chilli flakes (optional)
2 tbsp soy sauce
I soften the onions, mushrooms and peppers first in the frying pan with a splash of water (which will evaporate).
Remove from the pan when softened then add the butter.
Pour in the eggs and keep moving around with a rubber spatula.
Season with salt & pepper in the pan.
Just before the eggs are done, re-add the veg and mix through.
Add the chilli flakes and stir through.
Serve in a large bowl and add the soy sauce.
Alternatives to Soy Sauce …
I also enjoy other sauces instead – Have you tried Sweet Chilli Sauce? Sweet & Sour?
The secret to scrambled eggs is to whisk, whisk and then whisk again – I like my scrambled eggs dry and fluffy – Cannot stand wet juice at the bottom – particularly as you will have it mixed in with soy sauce. Eew!
