Meals in Minutes- Mediterranean Pita Scrambles

Mediterranean Pita Scramble
Makes 2 servings

Marinated ahead of time:

1 ½ Tbsp. fresh tomatoes, diced
1 Tbsp. fresh zucchini, diced
1 Tbsp. fresh green peppers, diced
1 Tbsp. red onion, diced
1 Tbsp. black or Kalamata olives
½ tsp Italian seasoning blend
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
½ tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil


2 whole wheat pita pockets (1 round, cut in half)
3 large eggs
½ tsp garlic, minced
½ cup fresh kale (baby varietals, spinach, or arugula would work great too!)
2 Tbsp. Feta cheese
Non-stick cooking spray

Cooking Instructions:

Gently combine the tomatoes, zucchini, green peppers, onions, olives, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Cover and refrigerate overnight for best flavor, or can be done morning of as well! Note, the longer the vegetables marinate, the better the flavor.
Start with a hot saute pan, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray, and saute the minced garlic.
Add the marinated vegetables, let start to saute and add kale.
Cook until kale becomes slightly wilted.
Whisk the eggs thoroughly in a separate bowl; then pour whisked eggs over the vegetables in the saute pan.
Use a spatula to keep the mixture from sticking as it cooks.
Sprinkle scramble mixture with feta cheese crumbles.
Warm pita in the microwave, oven, or another saute pan.
Once warmed, open the pocket and add half the scramble into the pocket (warming the pockets makes them easier to work with!)
