Eggs & Kale

 

Last night was one of those nights where I didn’t have much in the fridge and was too tired to run to the grocery store.  I wanted something hearty that would also incorporate some much needed greens.  I had a hodge-podge of ingredients; eggs, kale, garlic, red peppers, yellow squash…none of them really seemed like a perfect fit but I decided to just wing it and see what happened. The result was surprisingly delicious!

I ended up making Scrambled Eggs with Kale and Jalapeno Goat cheese and a side of sauteed yellow squash and red peppers. The flavors actually complemented each other very nicely! This just goes to show, you can still make a delicious, healthy and satisfying meal on the fly, sometimes it just takes a bit of creativity! This is especially true for those of you getting CSA/local veggie deliveries.

 

 

For the scrambled eggs I used:

  • 2-3 organic eggs, beaten
  • 4-6 stalks of kale, roughly chopped (you could any green of your choice)
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press
  • about 3 Tbs soft chevre style goat cheese; half in the scrambled eggs and the other half as a topping.
  • small pat of organic butter
  • sea salt to taste

In a skillet I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic, green onion, and shallot first. I also added some sea salt to give the shallots some flavor.  Next I added the chopped kale and cooked until soft, adding a little more sea salt to taste.  Once wilted, I added the beaten eggs and goat cheese and cooked until the eggs were firm.

 

For the Zucchini and Red Pepper side I used:

  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1/2 a red pepper, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press
  • small pat of organic butter
  • sea salt to taste

In a skillet I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic, green onion, and shallot first just like I did with the eggs.  Next I added the chopped yellow squash and red pepper and cooked until soft, adding a little more sea salt to taste.

All in all, this took less than 20mins to make aaaand I didn’t have to stop at the grocery store! It was delicious, filling, and super healthy!!

Hopefully this post will inspire you to make the most with what you’ve got in your fridge, you never know, you could end up creating something really fabulous!!
