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 So Good! Super easy to make, no crazy ingredients - I didn't even have to go grocery shopping! I wanted to eat the entire pan, but one serving is plenty filling. Don't forget to take the lid off at the end or you'll end up will totally cooked eggs, like I did, and they were still great.

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!
