Kale, eggs, feta and fresh fruits and vegetables combine to make the breakfast of champions.
Local eggs are my thang. I used to work in an office where I had fresh cage-free, local, organic eggs delivered every week or so, and people thought I was kind of crazy. I would come upstairs with this carton of eggs containing every color egg you can imagine, but I have to tell you, those eggs are tastier and probably healthier than conventional eggs, and it made me feel good to be supporting a local person. How fun would it be to raise chickens?!
While I daydream about fluffy chickens and baby chicks running around my fantasy backyard garden, lets come down to reality and make this yummy breakfast. Kale & eggs. It’s yummy and healthy and will probably make you feel like a superhero champion who’s ready for the day (POW!). A few fresh flowers don’t hurt either ;)
Kale & Feta Egg Scramble
Splash of milk
Freshly cracked black pepper
1 cup (packed) (or one handfull) fresh kale, chopped somewhat small
1-2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 tbsp cubed fresh feta cheese
Olive oil or butter, for the pan
Yummy things to eat with your eggs, like tomatoes or blackberries or magical oatmeal
Crack your beautiful fresh eggs into a bowl and add a splash of milk and a few cracks of black pepper. Scramble the eggs together and set aside.
Melt the butter or heat olive oil in a medium-sized skillet. Chop your red onions and add them to the butter/oil, let cook for about a minute over medium heat. Once the onions have softened, add the kale and allow it to cook for 2-3 minutes, until wilted but still bright green.
Remove the kale and onions from the pan and pour in the scrambled eggs. Cook eggs until they are just set and then add the cubed feta and the kale + onions back into the pan. Stir to re-heat and allow the eggs to cook to your desired doneness.
Serve alongside fresh tomatoes, fruit, toast, lemon water, or whatever else you need to start your day off right! Go out there and be awesome!
