What you need

  • 3 free range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp cream
  • 100g Mainland Creamy Feta, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 600g zucchini, spiralized or cut into long thin strips

To serve

  • Lemon juice
  • Black pepper

Here's how it's done

  1. Whisk together the eggs, cream and 50g of the feta in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan to medium-hot and cook the cherry tomatoes for about 5 minutes until browning and starting to burst. Set aside.
  3. Heat the butter in the frying pan and add the zucchini and toss, cooking for 5 minutes until soft.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and cool a little, then add the egg mixture and toss well. (The eggs will start cooking slightly in the warm pan). Then place back on a very low heat and cook stirring constantly until thickened. You want a creamy result, not scrambled eggs, so it’s best to start in a cooler pan and warm more, if needed.
  5. Serve topped with the cherry tomatoes and the remaining feta. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and ground black pepper.

Serving suggestions

If you don’t have a spiralizer tool, you can cut fine long shreds using a mandoline. Or just slice the zucchini finely with a sharp knife, or grate coarsely.

Mushrooms fried in butter are a delicious addition to this dish. Alternatively, if you want to add pasta, just add 200g cooked spaghetti to the zucchini with the eggs, and ladle in a spoon of the pasta cooking water.
