Scrambled Eggs with Spinach, Feta & Pita

Caregory : Dinner Ideas

This quick all-in-one breakfast is fluffy, light and easy to pull together. The pita softens in the veggie mix, blending in with the rest of the ingredients while still holding onto some texture. Letting the eggs set for a few seconds before stirring them into the pita ensures it doesn’t immediately soak up the eggs and become soggy.


    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

    • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

    • 2 cups packed fresh spinach

    • 1 cup sliced red onion

    • 2 (6½-inch) whole-wheat pitas, torn into bite-size pieces

    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

    • 6 large eggs, beaten

    • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

    • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


    1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes, spinach and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until the spinach is wilted and the vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes. Add pita pieces and cumin. Cook, stirring often, until the pita pieces are warmed through, about 2 minutes.
    2. Create a large well in the middle of the mixture. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the well, then pour in eggs. Cook, undisturbed, until the eggs begin to set, about 10 seconds. Stir the eggs into the mixture; cook, stirring constantly, just until the eggs are set, about 2 minutes. Stir in feta and pepper.
