Fried Egg and Greens

IMG_5436Simplicity is key. Especially when it comes to breakfast. I love setting time aside in the morning to relish in the little things – a cup of coffee, a good book, peace and quiet. My go-to foods before ten o’clock in the morning include blueberries, eggs, toast, yogurt, granola, and of course chocolate chip cookies or leftover cold pizza, if available. This particular dish, a fried egg and kale, is one of my favorites. It is a great way to start off the morning with veggies without compromising the special aroma that breakfast brings (cold pizza and chocolate chip cookies and exception to this rule, of course).

To begin, heat up a frying pan with olive oil, coconut oil, or butter. Add a bunch of kale and let simmer for a couple minutes on medium heat.


Stir the kale around to coat it in the oil. Squeeze a bit of lemon or lime on top as well. As the kale begins to “shrink” in bulk, add the egg.

IMG_5428Allow the egg and kale to cook for a couple minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Then, with a spatula, flip the entire egg/green mixture over.

IMG_5429Add another bunch of kale to the mix. Turn down heat to low and cover with a lid. Let cook for another minute.
