Olive Oil Fried Eggs with Kale

Olive oil

1 large bunch of kale, leaves removed from stems and chopped

1 garlic clove, peeled and diced

2 green onions, trimmed and sliced

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

Juice from 1/4 lemon


2-3 T. olive oil

2 large eggs


1 dollop of harissa, for garnish on the side

Toast, for serving


In a medium pan or pot, set over medium heat, add few tsp. of olive oil. When warm, add the kale, garlic, green onions, crushed red pepper and a few pinches of salt. Give it a stir and cook until wilted, about 3 to 5 minutes. Continue cooking until softened. Give it a taste and adjust the salt to your liking. Turn the flame to very low and cover the pan or pot.  In a small skillet (I used a non-stick), set over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. Crack the first egg into a small bowl (I find it easier to add it to the pan this way). When the oil is hot, slowly pour the egg into the pan. Fry the egg for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the egg white edges are lacy and crispy and the egg yolks has set. Gently transfer to a bed of paper towels and repeat with the second egg.  Divide the kale amongst the two plates and top with the fried eggs. Garnish with the dollop of harissa and add toast to plates. For heat, try adding some aji verde (Peruvian green sauce).
