Eggs and Greens

Some folks, knowing that greens are oh so good for you, still struggle a bit with new ways to get them in their diet or with finding new ways to cook them after getting them in the CSA box every week. This is one of our favorite meals. Great for really any meal of the day.

Saute your greens with a little butter and garlic (if so inclined). For spinach a quick wilting is all you need, for chard a little more and for kale a bit longer still.

Poach an egg and stick that sucker on top! Sprinkle with some grated cheese of your choice or a good dollop of chevre. This is so easy and the variations are seemingly endless: Saute or carmelize some onions before adding in the greens. Sprinkle on a bit of crushed red pepper flakes. Add some bacon and better yet, cook the greens in a little of the bacon fat! Brighten it up with a little freshly made salsa or pesto. This dish is also delicious if you've got a great Indian chutney and pickle to go on top. Gosh, my mouth is just about watering right now!
