Life Simplified: Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Parmesan

My life mantra is "Keep it simple".....I have repeated this so often to myself, and to others that I almost believe it is possible.  My daily life, I am my own worst enemy.  I always seem to have a "to do" list a mile long, and only feel productive if I am checking off my list, while adding to it.  

When I feed people, I have learned that simple is best. It is not about fancy food, complicated and expensive ingredients, and overtime in the kitchen-  it is about sitting down and sharing a meal with my family and friends.  I rarely complicate it, it is not my style.  Now, if I could feel that comfort level with my daily life, it would rock. Cooking in a simplistic way reminds me that it is possible to make it happen in daily living.  I realize it is probably one of the reasons why I enjoy cooking and feeding people so very much.




 Eggs should not be relegated to weekend cooking only. There are so many healthy and simple ways to  enjoy the "Incredible, edible egg"


Scrambled Eggs With Spinach and Parmesan
Serves 1
Recipe from Bon Appetit

Pull the eggs off the heat when they still look a little loose: carryover cooking will do the rest.

Whisk 2 large eggs in a small bowl; season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and set aside.  Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add 3 cups baby spinach and cook, tossing, until wilted, about 1 minute.  Add eggs; cook, stirring occasionally, until just set, about 1 minute.  Stir in 1-2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan.  Sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes.

A simple life is certainly something to aim for, whether it can happen or not is a different matter! :)
Personally, I love a dinner like this.

From the Kitchen said...

I used to think that if eggs were for dinner they had to be in omelet form. Not any more. Scrambled with whatever additions strike one's fancy is just perfect!!

Best,
Bonnie

I too aim for a simple life and pretty much that's what my life is like. But then things get in the way....that's the time to turn to the comfort of eggs. Love the Parmesan and spinach combination.

Yep, simple is better. And you can't beat eggs for comfort. And fresh spinach is so easy, quick and good!

Joanne said...

The simplest foods really are the best so much of the time. I can never get enough of scrambled eggs!

tasteofbeirut said...

agreed; simple and fresh and everbody ought to be satisfied! great!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Usually the simpler meals taste the best too. I do casseroles ( you know, the cream of mushroom soup variety : ) very rarely...usually for potlucks or holiday dishes. That 's about it... This looks great, by the way :) And I love me some scrambled eggs ! :)

I love this. I can only do simple. Lol. I don't understand the American fear of eggs as if you just eat one you will die of high cholesterol. Eggs are a great, common, inexpensive source of protein. I'm even thinking that for people that worry about the egg yolk, this could be easily made with just egg white.

absenceofalternatives said...

Speaking of scrambling eggs... I am seeing so many different kind of cooking oil out there. Coconut oil seems to be the new rage. I am confused. Could you write about which oil is the best for cooking? Actually does the oil you use even make any difference?

sangeeta said...

I love the incredibility of eggs :-) This is so totally my kinda food ..

Tracey Steele@Breathing English Air said...

I have to agree, the simplest food is often the tastiest.

Angie Schneider said...

Simplicity at its finest, Velva. Your scrambled eggs looks so good.

Karen said...

Perfect!

That Girl said...

Simple is good.

Pam said...

Perfect!

Big Dude said...

Looks delicious Velva and spinach regularly goes into eggs around our place. Good advice on when to pull them - I like my eggs moist as well.

chewingthefat said...

Low carb and tasty--my kind of meal!

Ashley said...

I've been all about eggs lately, and this recipe looks beautiful! :)

Mr. & Mrs. P said...

Simple and delicious way to start your day... Lovely

Michelle said...

A delicious trio of flavors.

My Life Healthy said...

Yum! Gonna try this!

Monet said...

I couldn't agree more. I used to try and make complicated recipes when entertaining guests. I found that tried and true classics always win out. These eggs look lovely!

Kim said...

Velva - I am trying so hard to keep it simple! It's easy enough to do when cooking. For some reason it's so much harder to apply elsewhere.

This simple egg dish looks delicious to me. Eggs are always a go to for me. So welcoming and comforting on the plate. Hope you have been doing well!

Erica said...

Simple and delicious breakfast,Velva! Love eggs!

Ramona JapaneseRedneck said...

I haven't had spinach and eggs in a while. Need to make them soon.

Bill said...

I'm not sure there's anything better to put into eggs than spinach and Parmesan! So simple and such a delicious way to start the day. Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorites!

Salsa Verde said...

Hi Velva,
What a great and super delicious combination!!
Simplicity at its highest level!!
Cheers,
Lia.

Karen Harris said...

There is nothing better for a quick, simple meal than an omelette or a scramble. I love these flavors together. They just make the simple egg a bit sophisticated.

Anna and Liz Recipes said...

We love eggs so this is up our ally! Perfect meal and a healthy one too- especially to make for the lighter dinner.

Chris said...

I wonder what Trevor would do if I made this for him for breakfast. I have been looking for new ideas for his weekday breakfasts.
