I’ve probably made this spinach and avocado scramble 1239487234897234987 times over the years. It’s THAT easy and versatile. And like I’ve said before, I always feel really good about myself anytime I can sneak vegetables into my breakfast.
For all our keto-following friends out there, this is a great breakfast option for you as well. You’ve got your protein and fats in there and a bunch of micronutrients as well.
The boost of flavor in this recipe comes from two of my most favorite ingredients ever – shallot and garlic. Let’s be honest, anytime a recipe calls for garlic, I (at least) double what it calls for. As for shallots, they add a somewhat sweet, yet sharp, flavor. If you always reach for an onion, try to swap it out for a shallot every once and while.
This recipe makes enough for two people, so share it with your loved one if you want. But maybe you’re SUPER hungry, like I am most mornings, and you want to eat all of it. DO IT. Always a good idea.
This spinach and avocado omelet is super easy to add to if you feel like you need to. Some of my favorite additions? Hot sauce – of course. My favorite is Cholulu red or green sauce. Frank’s is also good.
I also love adding Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning on top if you like a little salty, crunchiness added to it. Tomatoes also might be a good addition – either scrambled in or on top.
Eat this in the morning and then go crush your day.
