Whole30: Scramble eggs with sweet plantains and Avocado
Whole30 breakfast can be elaborate or simple. Somedays I like to make a hash with grass-fed whole30 compliant sausage. Other days I just want scrambled eggs, with sweet plantains and a few slices of avocado.
Recipe serving 2
1 ripe plantain
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 teaspoon of clarified butter or ghee
3 large organic cage free eggs
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of water
2 pinches salt and pepper
1/2 of a ripe avocado
1 pinch of salt
Step 1 ) If you have a cast iron skillet that is great if you don’t a normal frying pan works too. Place the pan on medium high heat and add 1 Tablespoon of clarified butter to the hot pan let it melt. Peel and cut the plantain into bite-size slices. Depending on what you like in thickness you can make them 1/4 inch thick so they don’t burn so easily when cooking on the pan.
Step 2 ) Place the sliced plantains in the hot skillet and let them brown on both sides it takes about 2-3 minutes. Add some salt and allow that to melt for about 1 minute into the plantains. Once it is all nice a browned and salted plate it. Lower the pan’s heat to medium-low.
Step 3) Crack three eggs into a bowl and whisk it with 1 tablespoon of water. Add 2 pinches of salt and pepper and whisk it once better to combine. Turn up the heat on the pan to about medium-high and add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil let it coast the pan.
Step 4) Add the eggs and scramble it using a spatula forming the scrambled curdles. Plate the scrambled eggs and some fresh crack black pepper.
Step 5) Slice the avocado in half taking one half of it and slice and plate it. Add a sprinkle of salt and a hint of fresh lime juice. Place the plantains along the side of the plate and breakfast is served! It should only take a total of 10-12 minutes to make.
When it comes to avocados I don’t like deseeding it using the blade of the knife to stab it because it’s dangerous. Instead, if you know the avocado is ripe all you have to do is squeeze the avocado to get get the seed out of the flesh. If it’s too young and hard to use a spoon. When we are shopping for avocados I recommend buying them ripe and how you know it’s ripe by touching it. It’s soft and dark green instead of a pure green color.
When you’re on whole30 the natural sweetness in anything is better than nothing so I make sure when I buy plantains I let them sit in the refrigerator to get super ripe and black. Inside of the plantain is still yellow. When I finally get them super ripen that’s when I cook them up and eat them with my meals. It’s so delicious goes with anything
