Total time: 25 minutes
- 8 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 cups Mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 cup Broccoli (chopped)
- 1 Red Bell Pepper (sliced)
- 2 stalks Green Onion (chopped)
- Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
- 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
- Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC).
- Add the eggs and water to a bowl with some salt and black pepper, garlic, and onion powder; and whisk well. Set aside.
- Heat the oil in a cast-iron skillet, or another oven-proof skillet, over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, broccoli, and bell pepper and cook until the mushrooms have softened and the broccoli is fork-tender, five to seven minutes. Stir in the green onion, salt, and pepper, and continue to cook for another minute until the green onions have softened.
- Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet with the vegetables and let the eggs cook for about 30 seconds or until they just begin to set, before gently stirring with a spatula to ensure the vegetables are well incorporated into the eggs. Transfer the skillet to the oven.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until eggs have set and are firm to the touch in the center of the pan. Let sit for five minutes before cutting into wedges.
- Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days.
- Serving Size: A 10-inch cast-iron pan was used for four servings.
- More Flavor: Use milk of choice instead of water. Add herbs, red pepper flakes or any spice you like. You can also use other vegetable such as kale or asparagus, instead of broccoli.
Why You should eat more mushrooms
Did you know only a few foods have vitamin D and mushrooms are one of them?
Mushrooms are rich in a range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also a good source of beta-glucan, a form of soluble dietary fiber strongly linked to improving cholesterol and boosting heart health. Beta-glucan can also help your body regulate blood sugar, thus reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, other active compounds in mushrooms support the immune system and may also protect us from cancer.
Considering all these health benefits, if you don’t eat mushrooms, they’re worth exploring. Experiment with different recipes to see how you like them.
How To Store Mushrooms
When you come back from the store with your mushrooms, take them out of the box, and without washing them, transfer them to a paper bag that you fold to close and store in the refrigerator. If you do not have a paper bag, wrap them in a paper towel, place them in a plastic bag that you keep open, and store them in the fridge. Doing so will keep your mushroom fresh for 4-7 days.
How To Clean Mushrooms
You might be tempted to wash mushrooms in water, but please don’t. Mushrooms soak up water like little sponges. So, the best way to clean them is to remove any dirt with paper towels or a small brush. After cleaning them, you can now cut them as needed and use them in your recipe.
