Carrot Top Scramble

I found this recipe during my search for carrot-top recipes a couple months ago.
Not the best picture, I'll admit.

Olive oil (a tablespoon or so)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
Freshly pressed garlic (a few cloves)
Carrot greens from one bunch, chopped
Tomatoes (I used a few halved cherry tomatoes from our garden, but you could use another type or even boxed/canned tomatoes if necessary. Or you could substitute something else you have on hand.)
Eggs (I used 4)
Cilantro, chopped (or you could substitute another herb that you have on hand)
Freshly ground black pepper
Shredded cheese (optional)

Heat the oil in a skillet, and cook the onions in the oil for a couple minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add the carrot greens and cook for another couple minutes. Add the tomatoes, cover the skillet, and cook for a couple more minutes. Uncover the skillet and stir in the eggs until everything is well mixed and the egg is cooked. Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the cilantro, and add salt and pepper to taste. Top with a little shredded cheese if you want.

We had this with toast.

Quite tasty--and very modifiable. You could add all sorts of different veggies and herbs.
