My “Ode to Kale” week!

GREEN KALE AND EGGS

food5

 

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar (doesn’t matter type)
  • 1/2 bunch fresh kale or 1 cup fresh frozen kale
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • garlic, salt, pepper to taste
  • 1/2 avocado or 2 tablespoons guacamole

Poach eggs: Bring water and vinegar to boil in a deep pot, crack one egg into a jar, bowl, or cup. Once water is boiling, gently lower the egg into the water, repeat. Allow both eggs to boil until desired readiness (poached soft is about 3-5 min, poached hard is 8-10 min).

Sautee Kale: Heat oil and garlic in a pan to medium high, add rinsed kale and lower heat to medium. Stir gently until wilted (about 8 min).

Layer kale, eggs, and avocado (optional hot sauce or salsa!) for a delicious meal!!
