Zucchini-Herb ScrOmelette: 293 calories PB GF Summer squashes were made to be combined with lots of herbs. Then add cheese: bliss! 1 ½ two-oz eggs HINT: If you are serving one person, crack three 2-oz eggs into a small bowl or glass measuring cup. Whip up those eggs and pour half of their volume into a jar with a lid and put it in the ‘fridge for next week. ¼ cup zucchini, grated 1 Tbsp chopped fresh herbs or more! 2 Tbsp grated Jarlsberg cheese 1.5 oz peaches blackish coffee or blackish tea or lemon in hot water 5-6 oz green smoothie or fruit smoothie or unpastureized apple cider
Put the zucchini and herbs into a lightly-spritzed non-stick saute pan. Cook until softened and most of the liquid is evaporated. Whisk the eggs with the cheese and pour into the pan. Sprinkle with the cheese and scramble it or cook as an omelette, hence ScrOmelette. Prepare the beverages and plate the peaches. Ahhhh. The taste of Summer.
