- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a fork to mix eggs, salt, pepper, and curcumin powder. (Be very careful with the curcumin powder: it will dye everything it touches a bright, summery yellow.)
- Add olive or grape seed oil to a large sauté pan or skillet, and set your burner to medium-low heat.
- While the oil is heating, stir milk or water into your egg mixture.
- When oil is hot, pour egg mixture into pan or skillet. Let eggs set for 15-20 seconds before gently scrambling with a wooden spatula.
- Add Parmesan. Let set for another 15 seconds, and gently scramble again.
- Repeat until eggs look almost but not quite cooked. (They’ll continue to cook on the plate.)
- Serve, and add a sprinkling of chives to each dish for garnish.
