Spicy Scrambled Eggs


“Go to work on an egg” was an advertising slogan many years ago in the UK, and it was a great campaign. Eggs are good for you (even the yellow yolk which does have cholesterol they tell me, but only a little), but scrambled eggs can tend to be a little tasteless unless you sprinkle lots of salt on it, which is not good for your health.  This week’s recipe just lifts the humble scrambled egg to a new flavorsome height, and all the family will enjoy it.

Ingredients Serves 2
Butter 25 gm
Spring onions, sliced 2
Finely grated root ginger ½ tspn
Red chili, finely chopped 1
Chinese Five Spice ½ tspn
Cherry tomatoes seeded, chopped 10
Eggs, beaten and seasoned 4
Coriander leaf, chopped a small handful
Toast 4 slices, served with eggs

Cooking Method

Melt the butter in a non-stick pan or well-seasoned wok.  Cook the spring onions, ginger and chili for around two minutes, add the Five Spice and tomatoes, cook for another minute and scoop out.

Softly scramble the eggs in the same pan until creamy.  Stir through the tomato mix and sprinkle with coriander.  Serve with the toast.
