In Venezuelan even just a simple scrambled eggs recipe needs to have punchy flavours, and these Scrambled Eggs Recipe certainly has it!
Traditionally this recipe is called “Perico” why? No idea as Perico in some parts of the country means a specific type of bird, anyhow…
I love to cook this recipe for a weekend breakfast or as weekend brunch. Served with crusty bread or even more traditional with arepas (Venezuelan bread), butter, jam and white tangy cheese and then you can call it a traditional Venezuelan breakfast.
What I most like about this recipe is the mix between the creamy eggs with the sweetness of the tomatoes, the rawness of the onion and the tanginess of the Coriander make an explosion of flavours that do perk up the tastes buds.
