A healthy hearty breakfast hash

Standard

Since I tried this dish a couple of weeks ago it has been a star in our kitchen, especially on weekends. Ideally you get local, organic eggs like me (Malta readers please check with Emanuela from the lovely Veg Box in Attard) – if you compare the colour of the egg yolk you’ll immediately see the difference to normal eggs and they have a lovely flavour instead of just being quite tasteless.

I’ve spent the last couple of days recovering at home and I can definitely observe getting better day by day by gauging my desire to start cooking again myself. Luckily there are two healthy options around here which deliver their yumminess home (Malta peeps check out the lovely Billie D. as well as Healthy Habits, I wish Grassy Hopper was delivering too!! Hint, hint ;)) and I’m sure readers in other countries might even have more . Main thing: Don’t let being weak drag you down and make you tempted to eat chunk. Especially those days you and your body need the nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants etc. more than ever! It’s so important to make the best out of those times… listen to interesting podcasts, watch documentaries or movies you’ve always wanted to see, meditate, read and just give yourself lots of rests and quiet time to get back on track. Another lesson I learned this time, it can also be wonderful to be taken care of and looked after. Thanks to my darling love on this note <3

Anyways, today is the first day I feel my culinary spirits reawaken! After one of my lovely friends even spoilt me and delivered my organic veg and freshly baked spelt bread home (lucky me <3 ), I’m dying to use this lovely kale I got again. (Did I mention I got soooo hooked on it? I know, it’s quiet late to join the hype, but things take a bit longer here in Malta – hehe!). So, tomorrow is a public holiday and I decided if I am a good girl today and rest and be quiet, tomorrow will be my first cooking day again and it shall start with this super yummy bfast hash. Try it! I hope you’ll like it as much as my love, friends and I do! Btw, the lovely hand made organic bread you can also get from the Veg Box – check out Backstube – Organic Bread.

Healthy bfast hash

What you need….
(serves 2)

  • 1 bunch of kale (ideally organic) or any other greens like chard, spinach etc., torn in pieces
  • 1 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 red onion, 1 garlic, chopped
  • other veg you’d like to add e.g. tomatoes, pepper (optional)
  • 2 organic eggs
  • salt, pepper (I like cayenne)
  • some coconut oil
  • Organic bread (I love spelt) (optional)

What to do…

Start melting the coconut oil in a large pan on medium heat and fry first the onions, then garlic. When they start getting nice and glassy, add the diced sweet potatoes, roast a bit and then add the kale. If you use chard or spinach you add it a bit later as kale takes longer to get soft. Season with salt and pepper to your taste and cook it for a couple of minutes. Now make two little nests in the veg and crack an egg in each. Put on a lid so the heat and moisture can spread inside to cook the egg. Take it off after 2min, check if the egg white got white and solidish and serve with or without some nice healthy bread! Ideally the egg yolk is still a bit runny or at least soft.

Enjoy & take good care of yourself & your body cause it is our temple!
Love & sunshine,
Nxxxx
