Chili-walnut scrambled eggs with rucola

Easy: 2 steps, 10 minutes

I was busy today with shopping and home chores, and needed something to snack on and get some energy kick. I managed to buy some chili peppers earlier today, and decided to make a savory scrambled eggs with a delicious, energetic spicy twist! :-) And oh my, that was both tasty and exciting!

Ingredients for 1 portion

  • 3x Egg (150g)
  • Arugula: 50g
  • Walnuts: 1 spoon (15g)
  • 1x Red chili peppers (3g)
  • Olive oil: 1 teaspoon (5g)
  • Garlic powder: 1 pinch (1g)
  • Salt: 1 pinch (1g)
  • Rapeseed oil: 1 teaspoon (5g)
  • Butter: 1 teaspoon (5g)

Step #1: Prepare the rucola salad (5 minutes)

Set pan on a high heat to warm up.

Wash, dry, and place the rucola on the side of your plate.

Crumble or slice walnuts into small pieces, and toast for a minute or two on the dry and hot pan. Sprinkle the rucola with toasted walnuts, and sprinkle the teaspoon of olive oil over.

Ditch red chili pepper into very small (best 1x2mm) bits, and sprinkle 2/3 of them onto the rucola.

Adjust the amount of chili to your liking—you want a little cheeky kiss of the spiciness that won't overwhelm other tastes. Less is more when it comes to spicing with chili! :-)

Step #2: Scramble the eggs (5 minutes)

Heat 1 teaspoon on oil and pour eggs onto the pan. When they start setting up, keep scrambling until almost entirely set.

Add remaining 1/3 of the red chili pepper, and sprinkle a pinch of salt, and a pinch of dried garlic.

Before serving, kill the heat, and finish frying the scrambled eggs with a teaspoon of butter—let it melt and mix-through the eggs.

Place eggs on aside the rucola, sprinkle with some dried herbs, and serve as soon as possible with some sliced bread.
