Blogging Marathon# 49: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Brunch Recipes
Dish: Migas with Black beans
Eggs form a very important part in breakfast and brunch menus, for egg eaters that is. So when I’m planning a brunch for my egg eating friends, I usually make a frittata (a big fat baked omelette with lots of veggies) or a quiche (egg based pie). One of my Turkish friend recently introduced me to Menemen (Turkish scrambled eggs with veggies) and that tasted awesome.
While looking for some egg based dishes for this week’s Brunch theme, I found this Migas recipe on Pioneer Woman site. This Migas is different from the traditional Spanish & Portuguese migas. In this Tex-Mex version eggs are scrambled along with corn tortillas, veggies and cheese. It is typically served with refried beans and corn or flour tortillas are used to fold all the ingredients into tacos.
I added black beans right into the Migas and skipped the refried beans. This is a high protein dish that is sure to keep you fueled till your next meal or snack. It is also a very versatile recipe, the veggies can be added as per your taste and preference. Also I think eggs can be easily substituted with scrambled tofu or paneer to make an egg-free dish.
