And so it begins! My "internship" of sorts in my parents' kitchen.
I have made a list of dishes I grew up with that I absolutely have to learn how to cook. So we're busy busy in the kitchen and here's my first lesson. This is very easy but its flavor is so different from regular scrambled eggs that I wanted to post it. I think what makes these eggs stand out is all the onion they are cooked with, but try it for yourself and let me know what you think :)
A Venezuelan parakeet breakfast:
Venezuelan scrambled eggs
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 15 min
4-5 eggs, whisked
1/2 small onion, minced
4-5 ham slices, minced
1 cheese slice, minced
1-2 small roma tomatoes, in chunks
1 tbsp canola oil
salt and pepper to taste
Heat a nonstick pan to medium-high heat. Add the oil, ham and onions and season with a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. When done, add the tomatoes and a little more salt to taste. Cook until tomatoes release their water, about 2 minutes.
Enjoy with your favorite bread, tortilla, pita, or of course, an arepa :)
