  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Beat eggs with milk and salt in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook until the bottom is set and the center is still a bit runny, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the omelet over and cook until set, about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Toss kale with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, lime juice, cilantro, sunflower seeds, crushed red pepper and a pinch of salt. Top the omelet with the kale salad and avocado.

I felt like I was tricked into eating a salad for breakfast! Next time I think I'll cook down the kale and pour the egg over it. I do like the idea of getting my greens in at breakfast.

I loved this! I was really curious as it didn't sound great with greens and eggs. But it was phenomenal! I used fresh lemon juice instead of lime (I like It better) and did use the salt - it was fabulous!

I've made this several times now. Initially was skeptical about the pairing but it is really fantastic. Super tasty and very filling!!!

Salad and eggs for breakfast! I didn't have kale so I used a super greens mix. I added the red pepper - it was a little bland for me without it - probably should have added the salt as directed. Tasted good and was very filling and satisfying.
