Lowering Our Carbs Emissions
When my old housemate Julie returned from gallivanting across Europe — spending family time in Prague, drinking in Munich, baking in Amsterdam, shopping in Florence and hiking in Switzerland — yes, I know, poor thing spending her summer like that, I welcomed her back to the States with a simple, veggie-full, homemade breakfast.
Surviving on fresh bread and cheese, among other glorious carbs, Julie requested a semi-healthy bfast, loaded with veggies and limited on carbs. So, this is a rare morning meal sans begal.
And, Julie–we’re still waiting for your travel post!
Red Pepper, Arugula and Goat Cheese Scramble
Heat a pan with extra virgin, when hot, add strips of red pepper. Let the pepper sit in the pan, undisturbed. When they show char marks, turn them over for another 2 minutes. Remove from the pan, dice the strips and set aside. Take 2 handfuls of arugula and roughly chop.
Add a bit of butter to a high-heat pan, and crack 4 eggs directly into it. With a spatula, constantly stir the eggs around. When 75% done, reintroduce the pepper, add the arugula and a couple scoops of goat cheese. Stir all together.
Serve with slices of salt and peppered heirloom tomatoes.
yeah julie…please tell us all about the cookies, cakes, and pies you baked in Amsterdam
