If you have tried my super easy spinach scrambled eggs then you will love this variation with turmeric.

Eggs feature very regularly on my breakfast menu, especially when I am following a low carb or keto plan as they are perfect for my macro requirements.

These turmeric scrambled eggs are easy to make and I usually include them when I make breakfast bowls along with avocado, sweet potato, bacon (or salmon) and tomatoes.

I have been adding turmeric powder to my scrambled eggs for some time now to get some extra health benefits.

What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a spice which is typically grown in Asia and Central America and it has so many health benefits. 

Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, promotes healthy digestion and it is an anti-oxidant.

You can use it flavour soups (like my red lentil & quinoa soup) and to flavour warmer drinks, like my turmeric hot chocolate and turmeric latte.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED

  • Eggs
  • Your choice of grass-fed butter, ghee, coconut oil or olive oil.
  • Turmeric powder
  • Spinach

HOW TO MAKE TURMERIC EGGS

I love how easy scrambled eggs are to make.

First, you whisk the eggs and turmeric. Then, melt the butter in a frypan over moderate heat. Then you add the spinach and mix it through the butter until it has wilted, then you add the whisked turmeric eggs and cook until you get your preferred egg consistency.

I highly recommend that you keep moving the eggs to the centre with a spatula or wooden spoon every 30 seconds while they are cooking.
