Power Green Veggie Options for the Power Greens Scrambled Eggs
So what greens can you use to make this fabulous recipe of eggs mixed with green veggies and fruit?
Power greens vary in taste and how quickly they will cook, but I will tell you I’ve never met a power green that I couldn’t saute or steam!
Tame the beasties easily with a few simple tries and you will find success I promise!
You have many power green veggie options:
- Collard Greens
- Bok Choy
Eggs mixed with green veggies and fruit: which ones?
The version I best love of my eggs mixed with green veggies and fruit creates a mixture of sauteed or steamed spinach and crunchy raw kale together.
Together these are dynamite in flavor and texture.
Do note that spinach will steam fast and that you’ll want to use baby kale, not that big stuff!
As for optional greens you can trade out the Kale for Arugula, Spinach for a steamed bok choy or swiss chard, or even collard greens.
Kale and Arugula should not be cooked otherwise you lose a bit of the nutrients value intended to make this a power greens and scrambled eggs nutrient-packed meal.
Don’t overcook the asparagus a nice crunch is always welcome!
I keep the spices simple for my scrambled green veggie mix meal
Don’t assign the meal a flavor, and by that I mean, don’t go and add hot sauce (unless you do that to your own plate), or other spices.
Rather just add in salt and pepper to taste and this will allow you to swap veggies in and out with ease rather than worrying about flavor combinations.
To GHEE or Not to GHEE ?
Now you get to make a few choices.
If you are a person who loves to cook scrambled eggs with ghee to get that nutty flavor and some healthy nutrients that you can borrow from GHEE use it!
However, you can also you Extra Virgin Olive Oil (more green) and use it for those fabulous healthy fats it brings to the power party!
I use either and it’s whatever I have on hand.
You are not cooking at high heat levels so you don’t have to worry about scorching the olive oil.
Ghee will provide your scrambled eggs with a much creamier finish as compared to olive oil.
Split the difference.
If you can’t decide, saute the greens in the Olive Oil and then introduce the Ghee when you add in the whisked eggs.
See there are solutions to everything when you think around it!
The Green Fruit Needs To Be Added
In my opinion, the green fruit that graces the top of this mixture is the key component to finalizing the healthy aspect and topping the whole thing off!
So it’s the Avocado.
Rinse the exterior.
Slice it in 1/2.
Take out the pit.
Then you will be able to cut lines, horizontal and vertically to create cubes that can be scooped right on out of the avocado skin.
I love topping the scrambled GREEN veggie mix off with avocado cubes and I often can be seen placing ETBTB atop it as well!
But you could also slice and arrange it or mash it!
For a different spin on the GREEN
Do you want a different green to put atop these eggs mixed with green veggies and fruit?
Alright, you can use avocado pesto, which is easy and green and still provides healthy fats!
