I love eggs.  They are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with protein, Vitamins B2, B6 and B12, vitamin D and a whole lot of minerals like zinc, copper and iron.  Add some vegetables and you have yourself a super nutritious breakfast, lunch or dinner dish for the whole family.  This recipe is super easy and can be modified based on your vegetable preferences.  This is a great starter food when introducing eggs if you are following a baby led weaning approach to starting solids, and a perfect toddler and adult meal!
