Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C)
  • Steam the green beans until just cooked, with a bit of crunch. Run under cold water and then dice. Set aside.
  • Sauté onions in olive oil over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.  Add peppers and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes. Shake some turmeric over the veggies while they cook (about ½ tsp).
  • While onions/peppers are cooking, whisk eggs in large bowl.
  • Once onions/peppers are cooked, remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Add onions, peppers and green beans to the eggs and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spray muffin tin with olive oil non-stick cooking spray or use cupcake wrappers. Fill each muffin cup until 3/4 full.
