Broccoli Basil Scramble


Sorry for the dearth of recipes lately. I have a pretty good back log of photos but I have really been hammering on the Thrifty Gene post and recently a post on cancer and ketosis…that should be done tomorrow.

The scramble has some interesting characteristics: 2lbs of broccoli, 8 eggs and a giant wad of basil. I think Nicki and i had more green vegetable matter in this one meal than most vegetarians have in a week. I added in some apple wood smoked bacon to avoid green food overload! The recipe was super simple:

Rinse the broccoli and dice finely. Head, stem, the whole works. Saute in a pan on high for ~5 min or until broccoli is al dente. While the broccoli cooks take a giant wad of fresh basil and chop it finely. Stem, leaves…again the whole works. throw this into a bowl with 8-12 scrambled eggs. Mix thoroughly and then add to the broccoli. Turn the concoction frequently and cook thoroughly. Serve with espresso and bacon.


This was a quick, delicious breakfast that provided loads of vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, antioxidants etc. Low carb does not mean no vegetable matter and good food is NOT time intensive.

    Robb, have you ever heard of the book Fiber Menace? Very interesting, you should check it out.

    I have not checked it out. Is this along the lines of Dr. Eades from a few weeks ago talking about gut irritation from excessive fiber? Interesting.

    I made a similar dish using fresh brussel sprouts and spinach in addition to the broccoli. I added a little garlic as well. Keep the recipes coming.
