A match made in heaven: scrambled eggs and zucchini. Note: this recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc. Ratio of 1 to 2 zucchini per egg. Great served over rice. Variations: add one clove diced garlic to oil before adding zucchini. Or, add any of your favorite fresh herbs; they combine well with the eggs and zucchini. My favorite additions are oregano or rosemary. You could also add two teaspoons soy sauce to beaten eggs, or sprinkle over egg and zucchini when cooked.

Good simple tasty recipe. I used grated zucchini & onion and used more eggs together with the garlic. Very tasty. We all liked it but it wasn't a top recipe worthy of four or five stars...but it is worth a repeat for the simplicity of it. Read More

Great combination! My husband and I have had this for dinner on multiple occasions. We season it with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. We have also added cream cheese, and that's delicious also. Read More

I was so skeptical about trying this but so glad I did! Definatly add spices of your choice and the soy sauce is a wonderful addition. Perhaps cut the zucchini in smaller peices so it is easier to get a bit of egg and a bit of zucchini in each bite. Read More

Such a versatile recipe! We like things spicy so I sauteed garlic and onions before adding the zucchini and seasoned the eggs with poultry seasoning celery seed and red pepper flakes. Poured the egg mixture over the zucchini topped with a little mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and cooked till done. I served it with toast made from Buttermilk Seed Bread from this site and my husband said it reminded him of bed and breakfast fare! Read More
