Perico - Columbian eggs with Tomatoes, Peppers and Onions


  • 8 large eggs
  • pinch salt plus more to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 scallions whites and light green portions, thinly sliced (see note)
  • 2 medium bell peppers (any color) seeded and diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic


  1. Thoroughly whisk the eggs with a little salt. You want to whisk them quite well, as more air in the eggs makes for a fluffier, lighter end result.

  2. Heat the oil in a over medium heat in a frying pan (non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron work well). Add the onions and bell peppers and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes, taking care to stir gently to avoid crushing the tomatoes.

  3. Reduce the heat to medium/low. Season the vegetables in the pan with a pinch of salt (and pepper, if you like, though I leave it out). Pour the eggs over the vegetables and stir constantly, but gently. Once the eggs have just set (about 2 minutes), remove everything from the pan and serve immediately - preferably with black beans, cheese, arepas, and hot chocolate!
