Creamy eggs, sweet tomato, minty basil, pungent scallions. This dish is a celebration of flavor. Every ingredient can be found in Provencale Markets.
Prep time: 5 minutes
4 tablespoons milk or water
1/2 cup shredded Tomme de Savoie cheese (or your favorite, a cheddar would be great)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup scallions, 1/4″ dice
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup tomato, 1/4″ dice
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the milk and the cheese. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add the scallions, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Turn heat to medium low and pour the egg mixture over the scallions. Add the basil and tomato. Cook, stirring slowly and constantly, for 2-4 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to the consistency you like.
Serve, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Whole wheat toast alongside is a natural
