Growing up in the Ozark Mountains means that I’ve eaten and continue to eat more “wild edibles“* than greens we grew (or grow) first harvest in spring (the heat of summer is too harsh for delicate, leafy lettuces and spinach here).
Most people figure out certain things like ham goes well with butter; eggs go well with greens! Eggs help neutralize some of the green’s bitterness (if present–some greens are more or less bitter than others).
I enjoy eating toast with Earth Balance Buttery Spread along with it, almost like “bruschetta” (gobble, gobble!)!
Eggs and Spinach:
- 1-2 eggs per person
- 2C spinach per person
- .5T EVOO
- salt & pepper to taste
