Eggs for breakfast are a nutritionally sound choice, but don’t get stuck in that rut! You can scramble tofu for a similar dish with its own unique flavor profile. This dish punches up the plant-based foods even more with the inclusion of peas and broccolini, but don’t feel trapped by those ideas: this is a great dish for using up whatever greens you’ve got hanging around.
If you can’t find broccolini or aren’t sure about working with it, it’s essentially a bitter green with the texture of broccoli. Broccoli makes a fine substitute if you want a milder flavor. Mustard greens work well if you like bitter greens but can’t find broccolini in your local store.
