Green Scramble Eggs

OK, so the eggs themselves aren’t green, but I love adding spinach to my eggs when I scramble them. It’s a wonderful flavor combination, if you’ve never tried it, you should.

Green eggs would also make a wonderful breakfast, or brunch. You can make it even healthier by only using the egg whites, using an egg substitute, or tofu.

I usually have green eggs over a slice of whole grain toast. It’s a wonderful way to get your children to eat a little spinach. The spinach flavor doesn’t overpower, and you can tell them they’re pretending to be the Dr. Seuss character Sam I Am.

To make green eggs for one I saute a couple tablespoons of yellow onion, in a tablespoon of olive oil. Throw in a handful (or two) of fresh spinach leaves, then add 2 eggs (or 4 egg whites) and scramble it all together.

You can also use frozen spinach, just get as much of the extra water out as you can before you cook it.

Let me know if you have any variations on this recipe.
