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.
