Hey Lovelies,
It's been a while since I cooked eggs. The last eggs recipe was Spanish omelet and green pepper eggs. I love eggs and I always like to make them in different ways since eggs are pretty versatile and you can make traditional recipes or reinvent new ways to make eggs. Though I love eggs, boiled eggs are another story. I used to eat boiled eggs especially with kachumbari (tomato and onion salad) literally every week!Then I just I hated them, could not stand or stomach them, and taste for boiled eggs has not yet returned, even though I always look at deviled eggs and really want to try them out! But we'll see. So back to scrambled eggs, today's recipe is simple though you can always add in whatever spices, herbs or vegetables to make it more versatile. In our home we prefer to eat the scrambled eggs with Ugali. Totally delicious!

4 Eggs
2 Tomatoes
1 Onion
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil


Break the eggs in a medium bowl, whisk them and add salt

Dice the onions and tomatoes. Set aside

Heat a pan. Add the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and onions
Cook until they start to brown

Add tomatoes to the pan

Cook the tomatoes until they turn to paste like

Pour in the beaten eggs

Let the eggs set as they cook for a few minutes without touching

Start to stir the eggs making sure that the heat is on medium - low

If you like your scrambled eggs runny, you can cook for a few more minutes and then remove from heat

Keep stirring and mixing the eggs if you prefer your eggs well done

Taste to see whether the salt is enough and you can add if you want more

The tomato scrambles eggs are done. Remove from heat and serve immediately with Ugali
