Turmeric Scrambled Eggs
December 18, 2014
Eggs contain choline which is important for brain and memory development. At only 75 calories, an egg has 6 grams of high quality, complete protein as well as iron, vitamins, minerals and carontenoids that are vital for eye development and vision. The egg is therefore a tiny nutritional powerhouse. But what about all that cholesterol? While it's true that eggs do contain a solid helping of cholesterol, experts agree that it's not cholesterol in food but saturated and trans fats that causes blood cholesterol to be elevated as explained here. So go ahead and enjoy those nutrient-dense eggs. They are especially handy for picky eaters and for a quick, last minute, i'm-too-lazy-to-cook lunch or dinner.

Heat a small saucepan on medium heat and add the butter. While the butter melts, crack the eggs into a bowl, add the cream, salt and pepper and beat well ensuring the yolks are well integrated into the mixture. Add the turmeric to the melted butter and stir the pan for a minute allowing the turmeric to open up. Reduce the heat to very low and add the eggs, stirring as often as possible, at least every 30 seconds. The mixture will eventually become custard-like and creamy. Once the eggs are cooked to your liking (about 10-15 minutes on very low flame), transfer them to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the chopped chives. Serve with toast and fruit for a five star, healthy family breakfast at home.
