Mediterranean scrambled eggs

Mediterranean scrambled eggs - an easy, healthy vegetarian breakfast that's packed with flavour!

Yes, I really am blogging about scrambled eggs. Don’t be offended; I know you all know how to make scrambled eggs (in case you’ve forgotten: you just scramble some eggs). But after sharing four recipes with you last time, I thought I deserved an easy one, no?

I suppose this isn’t so much a recipe as it is an idea – a bit of inspiration in case you’ve been feeling bored with your breakfasts lately – as I do every time I stare down into yet another bowl of bran flakes.

Breakfast is my least favourite meal of the day, by a long way. I just can’t seem to get excited about cereal (unless we’re talking the super sugary stuff, but I try not to buy that – always seems a bad way to start the day). I much prefer a warm breakfast, and scrambled eggs are a good option – they’re quick and easy to make, they’re pretty healthy, and every time I make them I’m reminded how underrated they are.

This time I decided to liven up my scrambled eggs a bit, with heaps and heaps of veggies. They help to bulk the eggs out a bit, as well as adding loads of nutrients (they do always say you should try to eat the rainbow!). I went for a kind of Mediterranean theme, with peppers, tomatoes, olives, and capers. All my favourites. The olives and capers in particular make it really yummy – just because you’re having a healthy breakfast, doesn’t mean you need to miss out on flavour.

Piled high on some wholemeal toast, these Mediterranean scrambled eggs made for a brilliant healthy breakfast. Other healthy breakfast ideas appreciated!
