Getting your daily dose of vegetables, which is approximately 2 and a half cups just became easier than ever! I noticed the Scrambles from Clever Foodies when shopping for fresh eggs at the supermarket. Next to the eggs I saw this cute and colorful round boxes, indeed very appealing! I took one of the shelve and went through the ingredient list: all natural, whole ingredients.

Chicken and Mediterranean scramble ramekins
The first flavor I chose to try out was the Mediterranean because it's full of familiar flavors and ingredients that I love to eat and use in my cooking: tomatoes, onion, bell peepers, black beans, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, spices and oregano. Sounded like the perfect start to a fine but simple dish.
I'm listing the ingredients needed to fill three medium sized ramekins with generous portions.
1 - Preheat the oven at 400 F.
2 - On each ramekin start layering all the ingredients, it's that simple! Start with 1/3 of the Mediterranean scramble.
3 - Cover with the chopped cilantro (I didn't state the amount because it really depends on how much you like it. If you prefer other kind of fresh herb, parsley would also go well with these ingredients).
4 - Evenly distribute the cooked chicken by the ramekins. Press it a bit so the chicken can absorb some of the flavors from the lower layers.
5 - Crack an egg on top of each serving and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked through. If you like your eggs a bit runny take them 5 minutes earlier.
Serve this entree with a side salad or have it as a healthy satisfying snack. Either way I guarantee you that you'll be surprised with what you got with so little effort and time spent! The egg yolk will infuse the bottom layers and the flavors will all come together with the spices and seasoning turning this dish into a medley of delicious and comforting flavors.
