Move Over Hash Browns - Kale Is Here

Pin It


I love my potatoes, that's for sure. But I have been on a real health kick lately, not so much by choice this time as of necessity, and the name of the game is chelation. Long story, but I can say briefly that one of the VIP's in this game is brain-healthy glutathione, and this dish is packed with it. Kale, garlic, onions, walnuts, and over-easy eggs.

I started out by sauteeing the garlic. I usually do this in two stages, adding more garlic when the first little bit is just about done, so that I end up with some of it a little bit crispy, which gives it a totally different flavor. Yum.

Then I add the finely chopped red onion. Of course, white onion would do as well. And then, lots of finely chopped fresh kale. It's important to start with more than you think you need because it will shrink as it wilts. Right towards the end, I add some finely chopped walnuts and stir those in, with a sprinkling of chopped walnuts on top as well.

I then top with two perfectly cooked over easy eggs, with the yolks nice and soft while the whites are cooked through. Yes, this is attainable. Just fry your eggs on a lower temperature and be patient. If you see and here the edges of the whites crackling as you put the egg in the pan, you have the pan too hot and the outside of the whites will be done long before the insides.

Well, I had my doubts about this, but it was indeed amazing, and I have eaten it every day for the past three days. Mmmm.
