Ingredients For Scrambled Eggs With Vegetables
Here are the ingredients you need for vegetable scrambled eggs. Check out the full recipe below for a detailed list of ingredients and their quantities.
1. Eggs. Use fresh good quality eggs.
2. Heavy Cream. Cream adds volume and creaminess to scrambled eggs but you could replace it with milk or even water. I have had scrambled eggs with a little water added and they were so creamy. Just don’t add a lot of water that it waters down the taste of the eggs.
3. Olive Oil. For greasing the pan. Butter would work too.
4. Salt. For flavor.
5. Pepper. For flavor. Black or white pepper would work.
6. Chicken Bouillon Powder. For more flavor and the chicken bouillon powder adds something to these scrambled eggs that sets them apart from the rest.
7. Onions. For flavor.
8. Vegetables. I use a combination of mushrooms (for meatiness and umami), bell peppers (for crunch) and spinach (because greens!).
But any vegetables you have on hand can be thrown into vegetable scrambled eggs. That’s what makes this recipe so versatile. You can swap the vegetables I use for the vegetables you like.
Just make sure to add the tougher vegetables first to the pan and the the softer ones last before adding the eggs. You don’t want to overcook the vegetables.

Want to make your scrambled eggs with vegetables even more eggs-citing? Consider adding the following ingredients to them:
- Cheese. For cheesy scrambled eggs add cheese to whisked eggs before adding them to the pan.
- Sausage. For meatier scrambled eggs with even more protein, sauté some sausages with onions before adding the eggs.
- Seasoning Blends. For scrambled eggs with exciting flavors add a seasoning blend of choice like Cajun seasoning or Italian seasoning when whisking the eggs.
