How is it already Monday, again?! I’ve been meaning to get this post out to you all for a little while, but I’ve needed some time to do stuff around the house that desperately needed my attention (read: the big office clean out!). The good news is the office is allllmost done, and I’ve finally found some time to sit my booty down at my newly clean desk (yay!) and write about this delicious scramble! I’m not sure what’s been in the air lately, but I’ve been super into quick and healthy scrambles. And this easy chorizo and asparagus scramble has been a frequent star at our breakfast show.
In truth, i’ve always considered myself to be much more of a fried egg person.
Do you have a strong preference one way or the other?
Fried is still usually the way that I order ’em when we go out for brunch (except for maybe the ham scramble at Rockcreek here in Seattle! It’s SO GOOD. I could eat those eggs every dang weekend).
But lately, at home, I’ve been into scrambles. Flavorful, veggie packed, healthy, easy breeezy scrambles.
Even though Spring has officially “arrived”, we are (of course) still in the middle of our rainy season here in Seattle, and so we’re still taking comfort in a delicious pan of roasted veggies now and then! This week it’s black pepper roasted carrots with savory cilantro yogurt and toasted almonds.
All the yummm!!
And really, as long as it’s not too hot to turn on the oven, I feel like roasted veggies always have a place in the kitchen, no matter what the season is. There’s just something so amazing about the caramlized sweetness and intensity of flavor that you get when you roast vegetables. It really adds a level of complexity and focus that keeps you coming back for another bite!
And carrots are probably one of my all time favorites to roast, if you can’t tell from my recipes 😉
And I am so excited about this soup recipe! Thai carrot and sweet pepper coconut soup with cilantro pesto that’s paleo, and can easily be made dairy free + vegan.
The flavors sing like a ray of sunshine in the cold days of February and really are kind of life-changing. As I write this we’re getting our first REAL snow of the winter here in Seattle, and I couldn’t think of something would rather cozy up to more than this vibrant bowl of soup!
I would actually, (probably) eat some type of soup for every meal if I could get away with it. I’ve definitely been known to have soup for breakfast when I wasn’t cooking for anyone else!
Unfortunately, Patrick isn’t always up for soup for breakfast // lunch // dinner, so I can’t exactly live out my dream soup for every meal, but I’ll just go ahead and sneak it in as much as I can!
And with recipes like this, I don’t get too many complaints.
