Traditional Greek Recipes: Strapatsada (Tomato and Feta Egg Scramble)

·

In a hurry?

This flavorful Greek version of scrambled eggs is made with plenty of delicious fresh tomato, and often some crumbled feta cheese. In the Peloponnese, where it is particularly common, it’s known as as “kagianas“. Ready in 20 minutes and perfect for a quick, light meal!

Preparation & Instructions:

*Cut your tomatoes in half and discard the seeds. Grate them or chop them finely. If using canned tomatoes, discard most of the juices from the can, and chop finely.

*Heat the olive oil in a large pan over high heat.

*Pour your tomatoes into the pan, and season with salt and pepper.

*Cook, stirring occasionally, until the juice from the tomatoes has evaporated, and they start to stick to the pan. This should take about 8-10 minutes (don’t overcook them, so as not to lose the fresh flavor of the tomato).

*Beat the eggs lightly and add them to the pan.

*Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are cooked through. Add the feta cheese towards the end.

*Top with some fresh herbs (optional) and serve with some nice crusty bread.
