Zucchini Scramble with Garlic Chévre, Tomato and Basil

My personal breakfast of the week.

Author Laura Bennett

Ingredients

  • onion
  • garlic
  • oil
  • zucchini
  • 4-6 eggs
  • tomato, sliced
  • basil
  • garlic Chevre cheese
  • bread, sliced and toasted optional

Instructions

  1. Roughly chop an onion and a head of garlic and heat up a pan with oil in it. 

  2. Let sauté for a few minutes while you slice 3-4 zucchini into discs. Add the zucchini into the pan and toss to coat with oil. Cover and let cook a couple minutes, remove the lid, stir, and then let continue to sauté until the zucchini is nicely done. 

  3. Wait to add salt until the very end of the cooking process! That’s the magic zucchini secret! If you add salt early on it will make the zucchini all mushified, and you don’t want that, no no.

  4. Then whisk up 4-6 eggs, add some salt to the eggs, and dump them over the veggies in the pan and scramble around until done. 

  5. Divvy out onto plates and top with raw slices of tomato and basil, and a plentiful heap of garlic Chévre if you can find some at your local farmers market. 

  6. I also top that with a dollop of spicy chilis and oil. Even better, get some of our Altamura loaves or bread from a local bakery and serve some toast on the side. Enjoy!
