This simple, rustic dish is both healthy and hearty. Winter kale is first braised with fragrant garlic, green onions and lemon juice. Protein-rich eggs are then nestled into the bed of kale, where they gently simmer to perfection. A finishing garnish of red pepper flakes adds the perfect amount of contrasting heat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 4 green onions, white and light green portions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 bunches kale, tough stems removed, leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, plus more, to taste
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 eggs
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste

Directions:

In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the green onions and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add half of the kale and sauté, stirring frequently until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining kale and repeat. Add the broth, the 1/2 tsp. salt and the 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Stir in the lemon zest and juice. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the kale softens, about 6 minutes.

Using the back of a spoon, create a pocket for each egg in the kale. Crack 1 egg into each pocket. Reduce the heat to medium-low and season the eggs with salt and black pepper. Cover the pan and let the eggs cook until almost opaque, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the eggs rest, covered, until done to your taste. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Kale recipe! This is a great recipe! Really enjoyed using kale from our garden and fresh eggs in this hearty and healthy recipe. I was concerned that this recipe called for too much lemon between the zest and the juice, but it was perfect! Can't wait to make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Impression Breakfast This is my go-to breakfast for healthy eaters. I don't cook the kale as long as the recipe suggests because I prefer a little more texture to it. The red pepper flakes add a great kick!
