Scrambled Eggs with Peppers, Tomatoes and Basil

Serves 3 to 4

I love eggs for a light dinner, and decided to do something different with scrambled eggs. This Italian-inspired recipe is quick, easy, healthy and delicious. These scrambled eggs are equally appropriate for breakfast, lunch or dinner and, since they are good at room temperature, on a brunch buffet.

The amount and type of vegetables can be adjusted as desired and the recipe made in any amount needed.


Heat olive oil in a nonstick 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers. Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté another minute. Reduce heat to medium.

Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Add the water and whisk until well combined. Add the salt, pepper and basil. Pour into pan of vegetables and cook, stirring often, until eggs are done, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cheese and stir in. Serve immediately.

Notes: Canned diced tomatoes, drained well, can be substituted for the fresh.
