Mexican scrambled eggs with watercress and seed salad

Mexican scrambled eggs with watercress and seed salad


Melt the butter in a medium frying pan, add the chilli, onion and pepper and fry on a medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes, to soften. Meanwhile, make thesalad by placing the watercress and coriander in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and lime juice, toss to combine and season to taste. Divide between the two plates and scatter over the pumpkin seeds. Once the onion and pepper has softened, add the tomatoes. Increase the heat and cook for a further 1 minute. Turn the heat down to low and push the onion and tomato mix to one side. Crack the eggs into the space left in the pan and use a wooden spoon to mix the yolks into the whites for about 20 seconds. Add the Cheddar cheese and gently stir the onion and tomato mix into the eggs. Cook for 1 minute, until the eggs are just cooked but still soft and a bit runny (remember that the eggs will continue to cook in the pan). Season to taste. Immediately remove from the heat and divide between the two plates with the salad.
