Breakfast stuffed peppers
This morning I have for you an incredibly flavorful and incredibly easy scramble recipe - perfect any time of day and any time of year, or for Halloween breakfast if you want to stuff it into some fun Pepper Jacks.
See our entire collection of Halloween Bell Pepper Jack O Lanterns.
Back to this scramble, though.
My usual scramble has creamy cashew milk, cheesy nutritional yeast... I pared this way down to the true basics, plus a couple of my favorite scramble veggies - asparagus and mushrooms. But the scramble base - back to basic. In this case though, basic does not mean boring, or no flavor. This was perfection, in my humble opinion.
I did use the scramble basic that is Kala Namak - the wonderfully sulphery Himalayan Black Salt that brings the eggy umami to scrambles worldwide. It truly makes a difference, and you need so little! Trust me on that one, you need so very little.
We had some fun with the Pepper Jack faces again too...

Oh my goodness cuteness overload. I haven't really been that excited for Halloween but this recipe is inspiring me to play with my food a little bit more this week!

What a simple, yet, clever idea. That will surely scare some kids into eating their veggies.
These look amazing and I think my kids would love them! I like how you included tofu in the scramble, what a great way to get a little extra protein in.

These are so cute! I would hope the angry faces would convince my daughter to eat stuffed peppers, but I am sure she would just eat the filling... 🙂
Ali @ Home & Plate says

These look delicious, and so festive!
