|spicy scrambled eggs with spinach, chilli & creme fraiche|
The snow is falling here in the Limousin and the cold winter days call for a bit of chilli and spice. My quick and easy spicy scrambled eggs with spinach, chilli and creme fraiche are flavoured with nigella seeds and cumin seeds, garlic and finished with chopped fresh red chilli. A healthy brunch or supper dish that ensures we get a good portion of green leafy veg and vitamin packed chilli too. Good served with hot buttered toast and a cuppa. One of my favourites after a walk in the snow with Monsieur Eric le chien. Bon appetit.
recipe by Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin
preparation time: 5 minutes
cooking time: less than 15 minutes
3-4 handfuls washed fresh spinach
1 fresh chopped red chilli (or to taste)
2-3 tbsp creme fraiche
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp nigella seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 large clove of garlic crushed
salt and pepper to taste
heat a frying pan and add the spinach to wilt it - this should only take a minute or 2. remove from the heat and drain the liquid and leave the spinach to one side
heat the butter in a frying pan add the cumin seeds and nigella seeds until they crackle, add the garlic and fry for a minute (being careful not to brown the garlic or it will taste bitter)
whisk the eggs with a tablespoon of creme fraiche before pouring into the pan, stirring frequently to make sure the eggs don't stick.
just before the eggs are starting to set stir in the wilted spinach
take off the heat, season to taste and garnish with the remaining creme fraiche and chopped fresh red chilli
