Ingredients

  • ½ cup 125 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • ½ lb 225 g broccoli
  • 4 oz. 110 g kale
  • 2 2 scallionscallions
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 2 garlic clovegarlic cloves
  • 2 2 avocadoavocados
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch chili flakes
  • salt or pepper to taste

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. Split the avocados, remove the pit and cut in slices.
  4. Slice the garlic thinly. Heat the oil in a frying pan and carefully fry the slices. Remove the garlic from the pan and place on a paper towel to crisp up. Save the oil in the pan.
  5. Chop broccoli and kale coarsely. Add a knob of butter to the garlic-infused oil in the pan and fry the vegetables for a couple of minutes on medium high heat until slightly softened.
  6. 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.

Tip!

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

    ...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.
