Tunisian Egg Scramble with Golden Raisins and Paprika

Eating this Tunisian Egg Scramble with Golden Raisins and Paprika recipe will strengthen your cardiovascular system and will keep your skin better nourished and ward off wrinkles longer.

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


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


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.


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.


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