Scrambled eggs, Mk I

Scrambled eggs

Paleovirtus Jr. is in the process of moving over to a Paleo diet, and this was a sort of “proof of concept” exercise for her.

She was, initially, quite sceptical that one of her favourite things, scrambled eggs, could be made by substituting almond milk for that white stuff squirted out of a cow.

Quite cleverly, she wanted to make this, her Paleo version Mk I, with just eggs and almond milk, to judge the suitability of the 2 principle ingredients to each other.

So, this batch was cooked in a non-stick pan in the usual way sans oil or any other fat, with 3 eggs and 3 tbsp of almond milk – no other seasonings or ingredients at all.

Paleovirtus Jr. was mightily impressed – she was quite concerned that the almond milk would dominate or overpower the eggs, as she believes it does in other things, tea especially*.

However, she pronounced this trial successful, and said that future versions would include a suitable fat to replace the butter she used to use in the non-Paleo version, as well as the return of the usual seasonings, and, gasp, perhaps even chives….

*Please note that this is not the official position of this blog – at all. I absolutely adore tea made with almond milk, and think Paleovirtus Jr. ever so slightly odd for thinking otherwise.
