    Tomatoes and eggs are born for each other. You can also scramble the eggs with grated tomatoes when tomatoes are ripe, like in the Greek egg dish “kayanas”:

    Anything beyond the eggs and tomatoes is optional, but red peppers work well (feta cheese less so, in my opinion).

  • Tim Crook says:

    Would it be better to cook the tomatoes with the eggs, as my understanding is that cooked tomatoes are better than raw tomatoes as the application of heat releases the lutein. Is this correct?

    • Sure, but as long as you are eating healthy, you shouldn’t worry about it. In other words (and unless you are allergic to tomatoes), if cooking tomatoes is what tips the scale from illness to health, there are more serious problems with your nutrition.

    I justhad this dish – fried off the cherry tomatoes (I just prefer them cooked – cut them inhalf first) and some finely diced red pepper in the butter then scramled 2 eggs (from the neighbours chickens) alongside and served up – stunning! What a great breakfast!

      I want to share my own receipe as follows for one person. Preheat your skillet on medium low, add extra vergine olive oil just enough to to cover skillet surface. Add chopped 1/2 medium/small size of red onion, sorte for couple of minutes, add medium/small size of chopped red bell pepper and mix with onion sorte for another couple of minutes. Then add medium/small size of chopped ripe tomato, mix it with onion and bell pepper. Sometime I add at this stage little bit of nice butter and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Optionally you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes. Add salt and black pepper to your taste mix it with the all the veggies. In the meantime scramble two eggs in a small bawl and poure over the veggies. Lower the stove temperature to low, cook for another minute or two to the desired overall consistency. The total cooking process should not take more then 5 to 6 minutes. Important! Tomatoes, bell peppers only organic, never refrigerated. Also, use preferably organic free range brown eggs or my preference eggs from pasture raised chickens that you can find at Whole Foods store. When the meal is ready, You can sprinkle with chopped parsley. , silantro etc. to your taste. Enjoy and let us know your thoughts.
