INGREDIENTS

  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 long green and red peppers - halved, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes - peeled and finely diced
  • 4 large eggs - lightly whisked
  • A pinch salt
  • A pinch red pepper flakes
  • A pinch dry thyme

METHOD

Warm the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan.

Add the chopped peppers and cook on the medium heat until the peppers start softening yet do not pick up any brown colour (for approximately 3 minutes).

Stir in the diced tomatoes and simmer for about 5-7 minutes.

Stir the eggs 2-3 times and remove the pan from the heat and continue cooking for about 1-2 minutes, gently stirring.

Add the salt, red pepper flakes and the thyme to season.
