Avocado, Spinach, and Chèvre Scramble

Goat, Spinach, Avocado Scramble by Against All Grain


I have no idea how this post got lost in the mix, but I snapped these photos while we lived in Hawaii last year and completely forgot to share the recipe! Just looking at the photos brings back so memories and makes me miss all of the dear friends we met while we were there. Plus that is the same spot where I shot the first 1/4 of my cookbook, so I have fond memories of that patio. It doesn’t hurt that it overlooked the ocean! I can’t believe the book is done and is going to print in just a week.

The avocados in Hawaii are so huge and buttery and we included them in almost every meal. Whether mixed into scrambled eggs like this recipe or just diced on salads, they were a staple and were always in abundance at the farmer’s markets. This breakfast (with a side of bacon!) was something we ate at least 4 times a week back then, but I had forgotten about it until now. Luckily we have Haas avocados here in California, so now that I was just reminded of how delicious this is, I will absolutely be adding it back into our breakfast rotation.

    Why are you using Goat Cheese? That’s not True Paleo.

    • Against All Grain

      There’s always an argument about grassfed dairy. Paleo vs primal. I do what’s best for my body and what I find I can tolerate. All of my recipes are labeled well and any with dairy are not labeled as paleo

        Thanks for the clarification.

    This was delish. I adapted it for what I had on hand – some left-over broccoli and regular cheddar rather than goat’s cheese – and really enjoyed it. I had never thought to put avocado with egg before!
