Egg Tuesday – The egg joins turmeric in the “10 Surprisingly Healthy Foods” article in Cooking Light
As a spokesperson for the incredible egg and America’s egg farmers I blog about cooking eggs every Tuesday. Nothing makes my day more than to read an article about ten healthy foods that includes most of my favorite foods! The Cooking light article talks about the health benefits of the egg as well as turmeric, chocolate, coffee and more. I decided to treat myself to a breakfast that includes two of the ten-the egg and the spice turmeric. Light, fluffy scrambled eggs with turmeric onions. Quick, simple, incredibly flavorful and of course healthy!
2 eggs lightly beaten with 1 Tb of water and a pinch of salt.
½ Cup of sliced onion
1 tsp ground turmeric (available in most any grocery store)
1 tsp olive oil.
In a small non stick pan heat the oil. Add the onion and turmeric and cook over medium heat for three minutes. You will see the onions soften and absorb the brilliant yellow color of the turmeric. The onions will then start to become golden. Turn the heat to low and add the egg mixture. Drag a rubber spatula across the bottom of the pan creating folds of fluffy egg. When there is no more liquid turn the heat off and place eggs on a plate right away to avoid continued cooking. Top with chopped green onion, cilantro or both. The color of the eggs are a brilliant earthy yellow with bits of beautiful browned onions peaking out of the light, fluffy folds of eggs. The flavor is incredible. With the first bite you taste an earthy, slightly peppery mustard flavor wrapped around the naturally rich flavor of the eggs. The sharpness of the raw green onion on top is the perfect cleansing balance.
