2 Tbsp. liquid (i.e. milk, rice beverage, or water)
1⁄4 cup veggies of your choice
1 tsp. olive oil (1 tsp. more for an omelet*)

Dash of salt & pepper

Directions:
1. Break eggs into a bowl, add liquid and whisk eggs. Set aside.

2. In a small frying pan add 1 tsp. oil and when it’s at a medium heat add the onions.

3. Sauté onions for a couple minutes, until they are translucent and soft.

4. Add other veggies and sauté for another 5 minutes or until the veggies are cooked how you like them.

5. If making a scramble, pour the egg mix into the pan with the veggies and gently stir until the eggs are done

6. Add salt & pepper at the end.

7. If making an omelet*, transfer the veggies into a bowl
