The Purple part of the awesome breakfast series.

Step 1:

Coarsely chop a purple onion and toss it in a pan to saute.

Step 2:

While the pan is heating up, chop up some broccoli. Just separate the flowerettes, but chop the stalks much finer.

Step 3:

Once the onions are just sizzling, toss in the broccolli.

Step 4:

Cut a red bell pepper into rings.

Step 5:

Toss the pepper into the pan.

Step 6:

Clear a spot in the vegetables and start cooking some eggs. Here, each cleared spot got the whites from two eggs.

Step 7:

Flip the eggs over to cook the other side.

Step 8:

Add a big handful of fresh spinach...

Step 9:

Then pull the eggs out and add a chopped tomato. I used an heirloom yellow tomato.

Step 10:

Cook until the spinach and tomato have just lost their water. Turn off the heat, and stir in some roasted red pepper sauce. I used a Perfect Pear: roasted pepper and pear vinagrette.

Step 11:

Serve with a slice of lemon.

    The recipe for the Red Lobster biscuits: http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/330/Red_Lobster_Biscuits14007.shtml

    I just learned that there is a black carrot that is used to make natural purple food color, because even though it is called black it is actually a very dark purple. This would look nice in your dish, and also another healthy addition. That is, if you can find them...I will be starting the search soon myself because I want to use them as an ingredient in baking....and I love purple. I also love eggs and veggies and I will try your dishes. Thanks for the ideas!

    Great! I like the texture variation of this dish (very healthy too).
