  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 green, mild peppers, seeded and chopped (or substitute ½ green bell pepper)
  • 4 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 eggs, room temperature
  • Parsley, chopped to sprinkle on top 7-8 walnuts

Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add peppers, a pinch of salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, for around 5 minutes or until peppers have softened and smell fragrant. Then add the chopped tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally until the tomatoes have lost some, but not all of their liquid and everything is coming together. This will take between 5 to 8 minutes, depending on the juiciness of your tomatoes and how thick or liquidy you want the end result to be. While the tomato mixture is cooking, lightly beat the eggs together in a bowl. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the frying pan, folding them gently into the tomato mixture but take care not to stir too much.

Then add the goat cheese and the walnuts. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the egg whites are barely opaque and goat cheese is slightly melted...
