Eggs are the ultimate breakfast food, but sometimes you need to add a little variety to your life, so I recommend skipping the yolk and making scrambled egg whites. Scrambled egg whites are a tasty yet healthy breakfast or brunch option, and you can customize them by adding your favorite ingredients. Bell peppers, onions, cheddar cheese, zucchini, and spinach are great keto options. These scrambled egg whites are made with tomatoes, red chili peppers, and soy sauce, which gives the eggs an umami flavor. Serve these egg whites with keto toast or fruits, and you will have a wonderfully filling breakfast or brunch dish. 

 

Are egg white scrambled eggs good for you?

Yes, scrambled egg whites are good for you. Egg whites are fat-free and contain fewer calories. However, you will also lose beneficial nutrients such as vitamins A and K and DHA since the yolk is removed. Nevertheless, egg whites contain protein which builds muscle and maintains our muscle mass as we age. In addition to this, since egg whites are cholesterol-free, they are the perfect food to eat if you are currently at risk for heart disease or stroke. 

 

What does scrambled egg white taste like?

Most people see egg whites as an awful bland-tasting food because they lack the creamy yolk. However, you can jazz egg whites up to make them taste better. Beyond the basic seasonings like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, you can add feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and more to make the scrambled egg whites taste amazing. 

 

Should you beat eggs before scrambling?

Yes, you should always beat eggs with a whisk. It is the only way to end up with soft yet fluffy scrambled eggs. In addition, beating the eggs before scrambling them distributes the seasoning evenly and incorporates air into the eggs. 

 

Do you add water or milk to scrambled eggs?

It depends on how you like your scrambled eggs! If you want your scrambled eggs fluffier, you can add some water. On the other hand, if you wish your scrambled eggs to be creamier, you can add milk.

Why does my scrambled egg go watery?

This can happen for several reasons. For instance, scrambled eggs can watery when you add milk or water to your eggs without beating your egg mixture long enough. Also, if you use older eggs to make your scrambled eggs, they will be watery. That's because older eggs have extremely water egg whites. Also, your scrambled eggs will go watery if you add in an excessive amount of watery ingredients like milk, onions, or mushrooms.

Ingredients

  • 8 Egg Whites

     

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt 

     

  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

     

  • 1/4 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

     

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

     

  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced

  • 1 Red Chili Pepper, sliced thinly

     

  • 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce

Instructions

Whisk the egg whites, salt, black pepper, and smoked paprika in a small bowl until combined, and set it aside. 

 

To a non-stick frying pan, add olive oil. Set the frying pan over medium-high heat. 

 

Once the oil is hot, add the garlic, scallions, and red chili peppers, and cook it for 1 minute until fragrant. 

 

Decrease the heat to low and add the egg whites. Continue cooking the egg whites for 2 minutes while mixing the egg whites with a spatula to prevent them from clumping together. 

 

Stir in the soy sauce and cook it for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes and remove the scrambled egg whites from the heat.

Pour the scrambled egg whites into a serving bowl and serve it family-style.
