Carrot and Chive Eggs

July 2, 2015


Author Notes: This one is for those who want to feel gourmet early in the morning, but, like me, are certainly not morning people. A few herbs, an egg, and, of course, a bit of carrot, all wrapped up in a tortilla, and you've got the teenage version of the frittata.Sonja

Serves: one

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized egg
  • 1 handful shredded or sliced carrot
  • 1 pinch fresh rosemary
  • 2 pinches fresh chopped chives
  • 1 dash crumbled feta (optional)
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla

Directions

  1. Break your egg into a small skillet on the stove, and spread it around a little bit with a spatula. Take up your handful of carrot and drop it generously throughout the egg, trying to keep it all to one layer.
  2. Add the rosemary, sprinkled in the carrot-less spaces, then fill in the remainder with chopped chives (if you prefer, just take a nice long stem of chive and tear and drop it in as you go). If you are feeling especially gourmet, sprinkle in a little feta.
  3. Now turn up the heat! About medium-high. Watch the edges of the egg until they start to curl slightly and firm, maybe brown a bit. Then flip it over, turn down the heat to low, and let the carrots toast a little.
  4. Then, having the tortilla ready, turn off the heat and take the skillet off, turning it upside down over your tortilla. Ta-da!
