Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix mayo and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Boil the eggs any way you like them – soft, medium or hard-boiled. Immediately, place them in ice-cold water when they're done to make them easier to peel. When cooled - divide into halves or quarters.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and carefully fry the garlic slices. Remove the garlic from the pan and place on a paper towel to crisp up. Save the oil in the pan.
  4. Add a knob of butter to the garlic-infused oil in the pan and fry the broccoli, kale, and scallions for a couple of minutes on medium-high heat until slightly softened.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and plate with avocado, eggs, and the mustard mayo. Finish the dish with fried garlic slices for extra flavor and crunch.

Tips

Baby kale or spinach makes the greens extra tender; buy them pre-washed to save on prep-time.

With Diet Doctor Plus you get access to tons of keto meal plans, including dairy-free and vegetarian versions, meal plans adapted for intermittent fasting, quick-and-easy and budget keto meal plans. Below, see our latest one.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    ...is there cabbage anywhere?

    Looking at the photograph, I wonder what the round 'fried' or 'crisped' looking things with a hole in the middle are? Some kind of garnish? I didn't find anything in the recipe that would look like that, at least here in Canada where I live. Hints anyone?..... Anyway, it looks like a fine recipe and I'll try it.

    @Monika, I believe that's the garlic.

    Scallions are in the ingredients list but are not mentioned in the instructions.

    They are included in "vegetables" in step 5.

    This recipe was very easy and also very filling and delicious. I saw that the scallions were listed but not included in the recipe. The picture shows they are a garnish on top so that is how we used them. This recipe is a keeper for my hubby and I.

    I wish the picture showed the vegetables more and not just the toppings. For me, this salad's use of cooked vegetables is interesting and I would love to see how they look when done. It sounds wonderful though and I will be making it.
