Yields

Ingredients

4 eggs beaten 
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil 
1/2 cup diced white onion 
3/4 cup finely chopped red pepper 
1/2 cup finely chopped jalapeño pepper (or other pepper of your choice) 
1/4 tsp coriander
 
1/2 tsp cumin
 
1/2 tsp of fresh minced garlic OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder 
Ground black pepper and kosher salt to taste 
1 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
 
3 TBSP chopped green onions (about 2) 
1/2 avocado, sliced

Directions

Gently beat 4 eggs together in medium bowl until yolks are broken up and mixed well.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook until soft, 3-4 minutes. Stir if needed to prevent sticking.

Sprinkle vegetables with the coriander, cumin, garlic and salt and continue cooking until just incorporated and fragrant, 1 minute or so. Pour in the egg mixture and add the turmeric, and cook until the mixture is warmed completely, 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan; garnish egg scramble with green onion and sliced avocado.

This is a great morning dish, and you can change it up with whatever ingredients you have on hand: mushrooms, pinto or black beans, even salsa!
