Spicy But Simple: Moroccan Tuna Veggie Scramble

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This veggie scramble recipe came to me one day when I got home from the gym starving – and the only things in the house were eggs, canned tuna, and frozen vegetables. So I threw it all together in a pan and never looked back. And guess what? It turned out great!

Now it’s my recipe to fall back on when I’m in a rush. It’s super quick and easy to whip up. This recipe provides all the nutrients you need for a complete meal – it’s high in protein, delivers low-energy carbohydrates, and packs some good essential fats and fiber. I like to add in a small amount of rice if I’m having it post workout to get those high-energy carbs my body needs for recovery.

  • 1 cup frozen vegetables
  • 4 cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  • Handful spinach
  • 1 Tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp Moroccan spice blend
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup cooked brown or wild rice optional

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk eggs and then add in drained tuna and Moroccan seasoning. (Add in rice here if making this as a post-workout and not Performance compliant.)

  3. Add frozen vegetables to pan, cook until thawed and slightly browned.
  4. Toss in tomatoes and spinach.
  5. Add in egg-and-tuna mix and stir vegetables through.
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe Notes

If you’re not a fan of tuna, chicken is a great alternative.

Leave out the rice if you want this to be Performance compliant.
