Peppers, spinach, and eggs

To be honest, I’m not sure where this recipe came from. I think I saw an image and then tried to make my own version because I couldn’t remember where I’d seen it.

I absolutely love eggs, and since my last surgery, I can tolerate most fruit and veg, so I have been making the most of it! You never know when a new stricture may develop, or flare may begin!

If you’re following a low residue diet, then this dish is not for you, but it IS wheat-free and gluten-free. If you’re a vegetarian who eats eggs, then swapping the parmesan for a vegetarian alternative makes it suitable for you too!
