  3. BREAK the eggs into a large bowl. ADD the water and half the green onions and WHISK until well combined. SEASON with black pepper and kosher salt.

  4. ADD the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet over medium heat. POUR the egg mixture into the skillet and SET for about 1 minute. SCRAMBLE the egg, and COOK through, about 1 more minute.

  5. ARRANGE the lettuce leaves on a platter and TOP with scrambled eggs and veggies. GARNISH with the remaining green onion and the cilantro, as desired.
