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.

We hope everyone enjoys their share this week!
