Eggs in a nest recipe

We have braising mix this week, and we thought we would share a different recipe for those who are wondering what else they can do with these nutritious greens!

This recipe comes from "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver.

Eggs in a Nest
(serves 4)

2 cups uncooked brown rice
Cook the rice with 4 cups of water in a covered pot while the other ingredients are being prepped.

Saute 1 chopped onion and garlic to taste in a wide skillet with a few tblsp of olive oil

Add 1/2 cup dried tomatoes and any other veggies you want to throw in (chopped carrots, potatoes, etc) in with the saute, adding a few tblsp of water to rehydrate your tomatoes (or use fresh).

1 bunch of braising greens - mix in with the other veggies and cover the pan for a few minutes. Uncover and stir well, then use the back side of a spoon to depress the cooked leaves, circling the pan to make your nest.

Add 8 eggs, breaking the eggs into the depressions in your nest, keeping the yolks whole. Cover the pan and allow the eggs to poach, about 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve over your rice.

This is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner and is packed with vitamins and protein.
