Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200: It's All Greek To Me Scramble



I want to apologize in advance for the following photos.  They're. . .not great?  The food itself was so tasty, but it's ugly, and, as it turns out, my blood sugar was 48 when I took the ingredient picture.  (If you're not familiar with Type 1 diabetes, just suffice it to say that's not good, and the picture's a pretty good indicator of how I was feeling.)

Here's my issue with this recipe.  I know the whole Hungry Girl thing is low-calorie/low-fat foods and all that, but. . .you can just use normal eggs for this!  I don't know why it didn't occur to me earlier, but I was measuring everything out for this recipe, and I thought, ". . .why am I using fake eggs?  I had real eggs in the fridge, and didn't have to buy this fake stuff."

That being said, you can use real eggs or fake eggs.  Even with the fake eggs, this was really good.

Additionally, the recipe called for 6 grape tomatoes, but I didn't want to buy a whole thing of tomatoes just to use 6 of them.  They would have gone bad, as has been the case most of the times I've bought grape tomatoes for something.

Also, I used a specific kind of feta cheese that already had spices in it, and I highly recommend that for this recipe.  It wasn't reduced-fat like the cookbook indicated.  C'est la vie.

It's All Greek To Me Scramble
Serves 1
From Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200

Ingredients


1/2 cup liquid egg substitute (or 2 real, live eggs, scrambled)
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (I used Trader Joe's Crumbled Feta with Mediterranean Herbs.  I recommend this 100%, and they did not pay me to say that.)
1 small to medium tomato, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 Tbsp. oil for the pan (I used coconut oil.)
Salt and pepper to taste
(If you didn't use a seasoned feta, you'll want some basil or garlic powder or oregano to spice as well.)

Heat the oil in your pan over medium heat.  Add the onion and tomato (and spices if you're using them), stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or so.

Add your fake eggs (or real eggs!) and scramble for 2-3 minutes until cooked through.

Move your eggs to your plate and top with the feta.

That's it!  Really easy, and really good.
