NOPALES AND EGGS - NOPAL EGGS

(Edible Cactus)
Prickly Pear Cactus Medicine: Treatments for Diabetes, Cholesterol, and the Immune System by Ran Knishinsky


Serves 2

2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon oil or butter
2 tablespoons diced nopal (cactus)
4 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon water
Sea salt and pepper

In a heavy pan over medium heat, saute the onion in the oil or butter until transparent.

Add the nopal and heat thoroughly.

Beat the eggs and water.

Reduce the heat to low, and after the frying pan has cooled slightly, add the eggs and scramble.

Season with the salt and pepper to taste.

Some persons may prefer to use high-oleic safflower oil instead of butter.
