My favorite kind of eggs: 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 or at least free range eggs – not only if you compare the colour of the egg yolk you’ll immediately see the difference to normal eggs and they have a much better flavour, but also they are much healthier than barn or cage eggs.

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 some healthy options around here which deliver their yumminess home or at least offer their food for take away (beg your friends or partner to bring you some). Main thing: Don’t let being sick and 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 P on this note❤

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❤ ), 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 loveliest home baked bread you can easily make yourself with one of my favorite recipes of the healthy food blog My New Roots. Yep, it’s called Life-Changing Loaf of Bread and it was indeed a life changer for me as it’s so easy that I now bake my own bread on a regular basis which I’ve never done before. Thanks for that, Sarah Britton! You continue to be one of my favorite food bloggers in the world❤

Healthy bfast hash

What you need….
(serves 2 or more – just take more eggs accordingly)

  • 1 bunch of kale or any other greens like chard, spinach etc. (always go organic if you can, if you can’t at elast soak them in water with seasalt and apple cider vinegar to get rid of the pesticide residues), roughly torn in pieces
  • 1 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 red onion, 1 garlic, chopped (optional)
  • other veg you’d like to add e.g. tomatoes, pepper (optional – play with them :))
  • 2 organic eggs (or more)
  • salt, pepper (I like cayenne), cumin (optional)
  • some coconut oil
  • sumac to sprinkle it on top
  • 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 little nests in the veg and crack an egg in each. Put on a lid so the heat and moisture can spread inside the pan to cook the egg. Take it off after 2min, check if the egg white got fully white and solid. Don’t wait too long so the egg yolk stays nice and runny. Give it another round of salt and pepper, sprinkle with sumac and serve with some nice bread!

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