I hate breakfast. Hate it. Waffles and pancakes, no thanks. French toast, who cares? Omelettes, fine. I am probably eating such a late breakfast because I hate it so much. But here's the problem: I totally need breakfast. If I don't get fed in a timely manner, I morph into crazy cranky person or catatonic lady. No good.
However, as I type this, I am scarfing down my new favorite breakfast (yeah yeah, breakfast at 2pm. Don't give me that look. Like I said, I hate breakfast.) Anyways, welcome to sauteed kale and fried eggs! Mmmm. I keep telling myself that I should upload more photos of my meals, but I ate this one too quickly. Sorry.
I love this meal because 1) it's healthy and anti-inflammatory and 2) quick.
1-2 minced garlic cloves
2 eggs (preferably omega-3 rich and organic)
a large handful of kale
red pepper flakes
salt and black pepper
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan. Then add the minced garlic and saute for about a minute. Add kale (just washed is best because the moisture from the rinsing will help with steaming) and saute until the kale becomes slightly wilted and maintains a deep green color. I like my kale hearty so I don't saute for more than 5 minutes. Add a dash of red pepper flakes for a kick. Transfer kale and garlic to a plate. Then crack two eggs into your hot pan and fry as desired. Place cooked eggs atop your lovely bed of kale, sprinkle with S&P, and add a dash of soy sauce. YUM.
Maybe my hatred of breakfast will transform into a like, or at least apathy? When I'm in a real bind for time, or just a zombie after work, I'll add brown rice to this dish for an easy dinner. Sometimes I substitute the garlic with slivers of onion or ginger as well.
