Tunisian Egg Scramble with Golden Raisins and Paprika

Preparation Time:  10 minutes
Cooking Time:  5 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:

Ingredients:

2 medium poblano chile peppers
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
5 large egg whites plus 2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon each: salt and ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika, preferably hot Hungarian, such as Szeged brand
1/4 cup each: chopped pitted Kalamata olives, golden raisins and flat leaf parsley
4 whole wheat pita bread loaves, such as Saraha brand, toasted or warmed

Directions:

Heat broiler. Split chile peppers lengthwise in half; discard stems and seeds. Place cut side down on foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat source until skin blackens, about 8 minutes. Wrap chilies in the foil; set aside to cool 5 minutes. Unwrap chiles; discard blackened skin and cut chilies into strips. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, then onion; cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Beat together egg whites, eggs, salt, cumin and paprika; add to skillet and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir sliced chilies, olives, raisins and parsley into egg mixture; continue cooking until eggs are desired doneness. Serve over pita bread.

Tips:

Good, rich, plain yogurt, especially soy yogurt and pickled capers (which are, actually, flower buds!) are other flavorful toppings to make this intriguing dish even better.

Substitutions:

1 3/4 cups egg substitute may replace the egg whites and eggs without any loss of flavor.
