I don’t know if these are actually a thing, or whether I just made them up one day in a hung over state, however now I’ve discovered them, they are a staple in my kitchen, so I thought I would share with you how to make Rainbow Eggs. They are really good on a piece of brown toast, or just on their own, which is how I eat them.
You will need
1 Onion – Diced
1 Chilli Pepper – Deseeded and chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper – Deseeded and Chopped
1 Tomato – Deseed and chopped
- Chop up your onion, I find the best way to do this is to peel it and then slice it in one direction and when you are finished, hold it tight together and slice it the other way, then you get nice little squares.
- Add your oil to your frying pan and turn to a low heat, once it has warmed up, add your onion to the pan. I find the smell of onions cooking makes me hungry, even if I wasn’t that hungry to being with!
- Slice your Chilli pepper in half and cut along the white parts inside to deseed it. The seeds are very hot, so make sure you do not touch your eyes while handling peppers, in fact I would suggest washing your hands as soon as you have put them in the pan with the onions.
- If you cut around the green stalk of your bell pepper, and pull it out, most of the seeds come with it. Then you just need to cut it in half lengthways and chop the rest of it up and toss it in the pan with the other food.
- Cut the tomato in half and carefully score around the seeds and they should just pop out, chop it up and… you guessed it, in it goes with everything else.
- Fry the concoction on its own, while you crack your eggs into another container and mix them all up together.
- When you’re ready you’ll need to pour the egg mixture into the frying pan and stir as you do it as the egg will start to set as soon as it hits the hot pan. Stir the egg mixture around the pan, making sure you cover all the vegetables and when it begins to resemble scrambled egg but before all of the mixture has disappeared, take it off the heat but continue stirring.
- Once all of the wet egg has cooked, its ready to serve. Plate it up with what ever you fancy with it, or just eat it on its own. (I ate mine on its own with a sprinkling of cheese on the top)
