Ingredients

1 tablespoon avocado or light olive oil, plus more for the tray

1 small red bell pepper, diced

1 small onion, diced

2 cups broccoli florets, chopped small

2 (1.3 oz/37 g) containers GO VEGGIE Chive and Garlic Vegan Spread and Dip Minis, slightly softened

1/4 cup (60 ml) plain, unsweetened dairy-free “milk”

6 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

6 tablespoons GO VEGGIE Lactose Free Cheddar Shreds

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush the wells of a standard-sized muffin tray with avocado oil or light olive oil (a silicone muffin tray or silicone cups work best here to prevent the muffins from sticking).

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper and onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.

Fill a small to medium-sized pot 3/4 full with water and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the broccoli, and boil 1 minute. Drain well and cool slightly.

Whisk the chive and garlic spread together with the milk in a large bowl. Whisk in the eggs, salt, and black pepper, and then stir in the red bell pepper/onion mixture and the broccoli.

Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tray, filling each muffin well about 3/4 full (I get 9 to 10 muffins out of this recipe, but it might vary slightly). Sprinkle the cheddar shreds on top of each (about 2 teaspoons per muffin).

Bake until the eggs are set and golden, about 25 to 35 minutes. Cool in the tray a few minutes, then run a paring knife along the outside and slide the muffins out. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Store leftovers wrapped in the fridge for up to a week and pull them out for a quick breakfast (you can reheat them in a microwave).
