“You VERY hungry?”
This is a quick and nutritious way to start your day. You can use a different kind of cheese each morning to keep things interesting. Feta cheese and goat cheese are two excellent options.
- 1½ ounces raw kale, torn into pieces
- 2 eggs
- 1 ounce cheese
- Pinch of turmeric
- Pinch of smoked paprika
- Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
- ½ ounce (15 grams) roasted and salted pumpkin seeds
Fill a 4-cup microwavable bowl with kale and add 2 tablespoons of water. Cover loosely and microwave for 1 minute. Drain the liquid from the bowl. (If you’re using a glass bowl, be careful — they get really hot!)
Crack both eggs into the bowl and add cheese and spices. Whisk together, cover loosely, and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and cook an additional 30 seconds until cooked but not dry. (You might have to adjust these times depending on your microwave.)
Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and serve immediately.
