Spanish Breakfast Scramble

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. There is nothing better than starting the day by enjoying a healthy dish that is bursting with flavor and excitement. Though, I will admit, not every meal I make falls into the category of exotic flavors because let’s face it, sometimes you just want a delicious chocolate banana smoothie or a creamy dairy-free bowl of overnight oats. But on those mornings when your taste buds are calling for something more, Spanish Breakfast Scramble is the ticket.

What gives this scramble a bit of Spanish influence is the more substantial use of vegetables, lighter use of cilantro, and commonly used spices like cumin and chili powder that gives soul to the flavor of the dish.

I also love the versatility of this dish. For the most part, I try to incorporate ingredients I already have in my refrigerator that day. The flavor in this recipe is established mostly through a combination of fragrant spices that permeate the dish during the cooking process. Though, I do recommend including cherry tomatoes since they play an active role in giving this dish a burst of excitement.

If you are short on time and want something delicious and healthy that can be made in 20 minutes or less, try my Spanish Breakfast Scramble. No better way to start your day!
