  • 250g broccoli, chopped
  • Hot water
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 20g green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 20g mozzarella cheese (optional)
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Blanch the Broccoli:
    • Bring a pot of hot water to a boil. Add the chopped broccoli and blanch for about 1-2 minutes until it’s bright green and slightly tender. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. This step helps maintain the broccoli’s vibrant color and crisp texture.
  2. Sauté the Onions:
    • Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until translucent and slightly golden, about 5 minutes. This will bring out the sweetness of the onion, adding depth to the dish.
  3. Add Broccoli:
    • Add the blanched broccoli to the skillet with the onions. Stir and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir in the chopped green onions for an extra punch of flavor.
  4. Prepare the Eggs:
    • In a bowl, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the beaten eggs evenly over the broccoli and onion mixture in the skillet. Allow the eggs to set on the bottom, then stir gently to create a scrambled texture.
  5. Add Cheese:
    • If using mozzarella cheese, sprinkle it over the top of the eggs and broccoli when the eggs are almost set. The residual heat will melt the cheese, creating a creamy texture.
  6. Serve:
    • Cook until the eggs are fully set and the cheese is melted. Remove the skillet from heat. You can serve this dish directly from the skillet for a rustic feel.
