Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup arugula
  • 1 Cup spinach
  • 2 Cups rainbow chard, stemmed and chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons spring garlic, minced
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the arugula, spinach, and rainbow chard to the hot pan. Cook down the greens for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Add the spring garlic and cook for another minute. Crack the eggs over top and cover. Cook the eggs until the whites are set, about 15 minutes. Adjust seasoning, garnish with a lemon wedge, and serve with toast.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
