Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 8-12 eggs
  • ½ cup (125 ml) water or 1 tbsp (15 ml) per egg
  • ½ tsp (2,5 ml) salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive or avocado oil
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 avocados, cut into wedges
  • 2 x corn on the cob, cooked and kernels cut off the cob (see tip)
  • 1 medium red pepper, sliced
  • handful fresh Italian parsley or chopped chives
  • lemon wedges to serve

Method

  1. Beat the eggs with water, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and pour in the egg mixture.
  3. Allow eggs to start setting before stirring too much. Gently stir eggs to ensure that all the raw egg is cooked. Don’t make the pan too hot; otherwise, the eggs can’t separate easily. Reduce the heat if necessary.
  4. Gently stir scrambled eggs, without over-mixing, until just cooked. Divide eggs between 4 bowls and keep warm.
  5. Add tomatoes and the rest of the oil to the same pan while it is still hot. Sautè for a few minutes until just heated through.
  6. Spoon tomatoes into the bowls of egg. Add avocado, corn and red pepper to each bowl.
  7. Sprinkle herbs over and add a good grind of black pepper. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Tips

  1. Cook corn on the cob: Fill a pot with just enough water so that it is about 3-4 cm deep. Bring to a boil and add the corn. Simmer for 5-7 minutes or until just cooked, but still bright yellow in colour.
