Start your day with this incredibly healthy, savory Turmeric Spinach and Eggs breakfast!

If you were to open our fridge at any given moment, you’ll find eggs.  Lots and lots of eggs.  It’s honestly the main protein I live off of.  Between Avocado Baked Eggs, Crispy Hash n Eggs, or my pretty much daily Perfect Soft Scrambled Eggs, I eat them nearly everyday.  And I’m always looking for new recipes that can add additional nutrition and flavor to them. These Turmeric Spinach Eggs are my newest hearty, healthy, breakfast!

Do you cook with turmeric often?  I don’t nearly enough, but I know I need to.  Aside from being one of the main ingredients in delicious Indian curries (which definitely needs to be on my list to make ASAP), it also has a looonngg list of health benefits!  Not only does it have anti-inflammatory antioxidants, but it’s been linked to being helpful with arthritis and brain function.  Aside from health benefits, it adds a nice earthy-sweet taste that’s a nice twist on your classic egg breakfast.  Start your day with this incredibly healthy, savory Turmeric Spinach and Eggs breakfast!

Add some onions, a ton of spinach, and some cherry tomatoes and this is a pan full of protein, iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A… the list goes on and on.  Simply put.  This is freakin’ healthy.  And a freakin’ delicious way to start the day!

    I’m with you — love eggs. My favorite prep is soft boiled with butter salt and pepper, but this is a full on meal that you’ve prepared and it looks healthy and delicious. I use tumeric in a few recipes I make regularly, but you’re right, I need to incorporate it in other ways.

    I absolutely love skillet breakfasts, and I can just imagine how delicious this one is with those garlicky greens. Haha, I’m actually the same with having eggs in my fridge, except right now! I’m all out! Total facepalm.
    I also need to get more turmeric because heck yes, I cook with it often.

    I am horribly addicted to eggs, among other things. Thank you for making me not feel guilty about my daily egg habit by making this healthy. I really like all veggies so your recipe is looks super delish! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    We go through lots of eggs too! I love when I can get farmer’s market eggs- but I’ve been getting some awesome free-range ones at Aldi. I need to start adding veggies to my eggs like this– this looks amazing!

    What a fantastic way to serve eggs! I love how hearty and healthy this is. And, I have to say that those egg yolks are practically calling out to me through the computer screen. I, too, need to cook with turmeric more often.

    We eat a lot of eggs too and I”m always looking for new ways to serve them. This dish sounds just wonderful! I love that you get even more protein from the spinach as well!

    I confess – I don’t have turmeric at home. Moreover, I don’t think I know how it tastes. I mean I know it’s used in currys but I can’t pinpoint the actual taste of this spice. I love eggs as well and I always buy another carton when I have less than 6 eggs in my fridge because… Eggs! I love how you cooked them on top of the spinach and tomatoes – gorgeous!

    I make eggs most mornings for breakfast and have been in need of a new recipe for them. I’ll be giving this a try this week as I love the addition of the cherry tomatoes and turmeric. Thanks for sharing!

    I sautee some mushrooms and I make it with avocado oil instead of butter. I love this recipe. My husband is not into it, but I make it for myself about once a week for a quick, low cal, healthy dinner.

    • Oooh the mushrooms and avocado oil sounds amazing! So great to hear! Too bad your husband doesn’t like it, but it’s nice to make something just for yourself once in awhile 🙂
