LEGENDARY Scrambled Eggs | Healthy High-Protein Breakfast Recipe

These Spanish Scrambled Eggs with Vegetables & Chickpeas are seriously one of the BEST-TASTING scrambles you will ever eat. We´re talking an explosion of flavors, heart-healthy ingredients and all done in just 20 minutes.

Scrambled Eggs
This dish is known in Spain as Un Revuelto con Verduras y Garbanzos. In Spain it´s typically served for Almuerzo, which is between breakfast and lunch. But you can also serve it for dinner. Either way, serve these scrambled eggs next to a crunchy baguette for the ultimate dining experience.

Scrambled Eggs
For the eggs, I used cage-free organic eggs. But you can use any eggs you like. But like I always tell you, the higher the quality of the ingredients, the better the overall flavor of the dish.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: Important to use a nonstick fry pan here. That way when you add in the eggs, they don´t stick to the surface. I topped off the scramble with some Manchego cheese, but you can use any cheese you like.
