Zucchini + Eggs Paleo Lunch - a tasty dish for lunch or even breakfast from Cyprus.Zucchini (or courgettes) and egg is a favourite Greek-Cypriot dish of mine, and is so simple to make. You need just 3 ingredients – eggs, zucchini and ground cinnamon. Now, I know that the addition of cinnamon sounds a bit weird, but it’s how it is done! You can leave it out though if the thought of it doesn’t sit well with you! It would make a great paleo breakfast or lunch.
