Scrambled eggs with flax

Cooked a pleasant thing.

I've soaked some flax seeds to make them into food. Unsoaked flax seeds are edible, but not very nutritious. Soaked flax seeds keep for a surprisingly long time in the refrigerator. They're also very low carb, but seem carb-like to eat. They aren't that great if they're just cooked a little.

I fried a moderate quantity of soaked flax seeds in olive oil for a while at medium heat. Probably 15 minutes or more. I needed to scrape them off the pan a few times.

I added chopped cauliflower, salt, and various spices. I forget all of them, but there was Penzey's Justice mix, which is mostly various sorts of dried onion and a medium curry. The result was mild, but the spices presumably added interest. If you want actual zing, taste as you go.

Then, 4 large scrambled eggs and some cream (approximately the volume of one of the eggs). When the eggs were cooked, I added a good bit of parmesan cheese.

The result was comfort food, which I wasn't expecting. I think it wasn't just the amount of dairy, the texture (perhaps something glutinous from the flax seeds) hit the spot.
