Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • When selecting the onion, choose one that is firm and has no discolouration.
  • Make sure the eggs are at room temperature before using them in the recipe.

  • Replace the olive oil with vegetable oil. This is a healthier option as vegetable oil is lower in saturated fat than olive oil and can help reduce cholesterol levels.
  • Replace the sweet corn with diced zucchini. This substitution adds more vegetables to the dish and the zucchini will provide a different texture and flavor to the dish.

Vegetarian Variation Replace the eggs with a mixture of 1/2 cup of chickpea flour, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, and a pinch of salt. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and pour the mixture into the pan with the vegetables. Cook the mixture for 10-15 minutes or until the top is set. Serve with tomato salsa, avocado, coriander and lime wedges.
