Mediterranean Egg Scramble

This Mediterranean Egg Scramble is a healthy way to start the day and can also double as lunch or dinner!

Mediterranean Egg Scramble

Eggs are obviously a key ingredient, but the true star of this show is Path of Life’s Mediterranean Quinoa Blend. Located in Heinen’s Frozen Department, this time-saving staple is tossed with cherry tomatoes, spinach, and basil and finished with olive oil and garlic, making it a conveniently flavorful addition to any meal.

Scrambled with roasted red peppers, red onion, spinach, feta cheese and za’atar, these are not your average eggs!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. red onion, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s roasted red peppers, finely chopped
  • 4 Heinen’s cage free eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup of Path of Life Mediterranean quinoa blend, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1/2 tsp. Terranean za'atar or Greek seasoning of choice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the onion and roasted red peppers and continue to sauté for another minute.
  2. Whisk the 4 eggs in a bowl until combined.
  3. Pour the eggs into the skillet with the onion and roasted red peppers. Let the eggs cook for a few seconds without stirring.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, pull the eggs across the bottom of the pan to form the large curds.
  5. Stir in the spinach, cooked quinoa, feta cheese, za’atar, salt and pepper.
  6. Continue cooking over medium-low heat, folding and stirring the eggs every few seconds. Use the spatula to scrape the bottom and sides of the pan often to form more soft curds.
  7. Once the eggs are mostly set, remove the pan from the stove and serve with fresh parsley, extra za’atar and crushed red pepper.

Notes

  • Make sure the red onion, spinach and roasted red peppers are finely chopped. It helps everything cook evenly with the eggs.
  • Feel free to use whatever spices you like. I enjoy a Greek seasoning blended, Italian seasoning, dill or oregano.
  • You can use a different cheese in place of the feta, like goat cheese, Parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese. Cheese can also be omitted completely.
