Tomato egg scramble, served with pineapple and strawberries

Next to cilantro, tomatoes are God’s gift to cooking. Tomatoes will add color, flavor and tenderness to your meat dishes, as well as fluffiness to your eggs. This recipe is low in carbohydrates and great for anyone dieting or looking for a starch-free breakfast.

Herbs are in this recipe for color and flavor balance. Choose among parsley, cilantro or chives… or add them all. I find that parsley gives the eggs a sweeter flavor, which contrasts well with the vinegar in this scramble. Cilantro will add a distinct flavor and chives will give the scramble a combination of textures and a pungent aroma. Go with your taste.
