Try it Thursday: Eggs in a Nest!

A good friend of mine recommended a book that I have loved since I first read it. I refer to it often-especially when I am looking for seasonal recipes. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is a great book to change one’s habitudes on food. It is a heart warming story, and the perfect kitchen resource!

Foods to look for that are currently in season include:

Apricots
Artichokes
Arugula
Asparagus
Beets
Carrots
Chard and other greens
Fava Beans
Fennel
Green onions and scallions
Kiwis
Leeks
Lemons
Mint
Morels
New potatoes
Peas
Radishes
Rhubarb
Strawberries (April-June in California and Florida)

This recipe bring out the best in dark, leafy greens, especially when greens are coming up by the bushel in local gardens.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • EVOO
  • medium onion
  • chopped garlic to taste
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • ½ cup dried tomatoes
  • 1 large bunch of chard or spring greens
  • 8 eggs
Instructions
  1. Cook rice with 4 cups water in a covered pot while other ingredients are being prepared.
  2. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil in a wide skillet until lightly golden.
  3. Add carrots and sauté for a few more minutes, adding just enough water to rehydrate the tomatoes.
  4. Mix greens with other vegetables and cover pan for a few minutes. Uncover, stir well, then use the back of a spoon to make depressions in the cooked leaves, circling the pan like numbers on a clock.
  5. Break an egg into each depression, being careful to keep yolks whole. Cover pan again and allow eggs to poach for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve over rice.
Notes
I topped mine with a little hot sauce for a kick!
