A Hearty Breakfast of Kale, Quinoa & Egg

I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but it’s not that easy to eat a healthy (yet delicious) breakfast! Sure, our fruit parfait is really good, but for those of us who like savory dishes, what are we to do? I know it’s super late in the game, but I’ve been on a real kale kick lately (could be the pressures of bathing suit season!) so I did some testing for a really good kale breakfast. My mouth is salivating just writing this post…

Makes 1 serving

  • 2 big leaves of kale, cut in long strips (be sure to remove the leaves from the stem)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1 minced garlic shallot
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 egg

Cook the quinoa according to the package instructions. While that’s cooking, heat the olive oil and garlic together, then add in the kale. Cook the kale until it’s wilted.  By then the quinoa should be ready, so add it in to the pan with the kale and blend together. In a separate pan, add the teensiest bit of butter and fry your egg sunny side up. If you want it to look fancy, scoop the quinoa mix on to a plate and top with the egg.
