Perfect Scrambled Eggs
How I make scrambled eggs!
Eggs can be a perfect food if they come from happy chickens. See the Notes section below for some key “happy” words to look for on the carton.
Good eggs are good for people, too! Research suggests that eating eggs regularly does not raise blood cholesterol. In fact, in addition to protein, vitamins, and minerals, eggs contain unsaturated fat, which is associated with good cholesterol. Tests also show that compared to conventional eggs, pasture-raised eggs contain a lot more vitamins, minerals, and healthy fatty acids.
So go on—be a good egg!
Untoasted sesame oil
Optional add-ins: I like chopped green onion and parsley
You don’t need milk—I promise!
Heat a little oil in the pan
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them vigorously with a fork or whisk to create air bubbles. This will make your scramble softer and fluffier.
Pour the eggs into the hot pan and let them cook for one minute, then use a spatula to gently fold and stir them
Add any other ingredients and serve while still soft, a little moist, and perfectly yellow—be careful not to burn to brown*
Feel happy like happy hens do!
*Why? For one, burnt eggs are just not attractive! But burning things also makes them carcinogenic—especially animal products. So don’t feel the burn! Remove from heat before it’s too late.
Look for these labels that describe the way any chicken would want to live:
Eggs love company. Try adding in almost any chopped veggie: red peppers, mushrooms, leafy greens… It’s hard to find one that doesn’t work.
I like to serve eggs with sliced avocado and rye toast on the side, but again, the options are nearly endless. What’s in your cupboard? There! That’ll make a great side : )
I would love to hear your thoughts!
