Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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 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! Read More

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. Read More
