A Superfood Scramble is one of my favorite ways to start my morning. Made with whatever veggies I have on hand, plus spices, herbs, and organic pasture-raised eggs, its easy, quick, versatile, and delicious.
If you stay chez Marlowe, this is most likely what I’m cooking you for breakfast.
My personal favorite combos for a Superfood Scramble include:
- okra + red onion
- Swiss chard + red onion
- broccoli + jalapeno
- fresh herbs like basil, parsley, dill, and cilantro
- broccoli, basil, mushrooms, and tomato – which happen to be packed with nutrients that encourage healthy hair growth.
Other ingredients I love – spinach, cauliflower, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, sweet potato, purple potato…pretty much anything that can be sauteed. I often combine 2-3 veggies at a time. You don’t really need to measure the veggies out, put as many as you want in there.
How to Make a Superfood Scramble
The key to making it taste good no matter what you put in it, is to always use aromatics (onions/garlic) and spices you like (for example, I often turn to turmeric + chile powder or dried oregano + basil + thyme). These add flavor, so it won’t matter what veggies you put in it, it should taste good.
To get you started here is a simple version using mushrooms and chard. This is a great option if you’re trying to lose weight as the mushrooms and chard are filling yet very low cal.
