  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste

  • In a small skillet, saute the onions and peppers on medium heat till they reach a consistency you’re happy with.
  • Add all spices, salt and cayenne and continue to saute for 2-3 min.
  • Reduce heat to low and break open both eggs on to the sauteed peppers.

  • Red and yellow peppers are super rich in nutrients. 1/2 lb of peppers contain ~ 300% vit C, ~80% vit A, and 15% vit B6 in addition to many more such micronutrients! They’re also known to reduce CVD risk , improves lung health and protect against cataracts.
  • Avocados are pretty darn awesome with anti-inflammatory properties! They’re are filled with healthy monounsaturated fats, offer a tonne of dietary fiber and are rich in vit k, potassium, folate and vit B6.
  • Eggs have more nutrients than multi-vitamin tablets… and its all in the yolks! They are especially rich in choline which is critical for brain function.
  • Indian spices have so many health benefits I’m not even going to list them here. Check it out here and here and here.

Here are a couple moreĀ  beauty shots of my favorite way to eat eggs…

Meal Ideas:

  • Have it as it is as a snack. Or…
  • Add another egg and some more avocado and make it a meal. Or…
  • Add some bacon to make it orgasmic! Or…
  • Double the recipe and make it a meal. Or…
  • Have this with a side of white rice and go nuts!

Can something so healthy taste so awesome? Heck yea! Give it a shot. You’ll be happy you did!

    What a co-incidence. I made something quite similar today. I sauted the peppers, tomatoes and onions separately with no spices but just salt. I added all these spices mentioned here to the eggs (beaten) and made a really thin omelette (a translucent one). Finally i put the vegetables and grated cheese in the middle of the omelette and made an egg-roll
