Turmeric and Parmigiano Eggs

Turmeric and Parmigiano Eggs

The paradox in the job I do is that even though I am surrounded by food all day, it can get pretty busy and before you know it, you realise that you have just skipped lunch again. Therefore, it is important for me to get a good breakfast; I love breakfast, from yogurt to beans, a lot of fruits of course, nuts, honey, and even goats cheese on rye. But what is sure to see me alive over the crest of a missed midday bite, are eggs. Scrambled or fried, at least once a week. But since the egg and avocado thingy doesn’t agree with me ( my eyes go funny, or rather my vision, I am very sensitive to some of nature’s chemistry, I get high very easily ), I wanted to come up with something that would work well for me. It happened early this month, in my kitchen ( well d’ah), I was “starving with the hunger”; the ingredients were staring at me, something happened, I knew then what a sorcerer must have felt when he cast his first spell…

You’ll Need:

  • 2 fresh free range happy eggs
  • 1 root of fresh turmeric
  • Olive oil
  • Black Pepper
  • Good sea salt or Fleur de sel
  • a hint of grated garlic
  • shavings of fresh Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan)
Fresh Turmeric

How to:

In a pan with olive oil, fry the eggs to your liking; serve on a plate. Peel and finely grate the fresh turmeric root, sprinkle salt and black pepper and grate a little bit of garlic over. Shave a bit of parmesan on top and serve with a bit of toasted brioche (recipe on the previous post if you are interested) for example, or a nice sourdough bread slightly crispy…

Take that Benedict!

Et voilá…

  1. My life would be pointless without eggs. I am a slave to all things eggy and now I need to try these – I’ve not used grated turmeric despite being told repeatedly that I should so here’s my chance. If they are half as good as that Tuna Sarnie I’ll be heaven bound for certain 🙂

      1. I used to be one of those many years ago when I was achingly Cool and insisted that everything I did was an homage to Film Noir …. advice duly taken as I am now properly cool without the need to fumer anything!
