Doesn’t the title sound so romantic? My neighbor George (so I only have 1 neighbor, but he’s a great neighbor!) is going to tease me for eating something like this:) I’ve made a few things that I shared on Instagram that were’nt his favorite. He may have said something like, “OOOooo!”, but on the other hand he’s the first to tell me when something looks good too. He’s even volunteered his tasting talents a few times. That’s what a good neighbor looks like if you ask me.
I love this breakfast! Even a few of my children like this breakfast. And I love how pretty it is. Swiss Chard is a vegetable that my grandpa grew in his garden when I was little. My mom would fix it a few nights a week during the summer months, and I remember loving it. Steamed with a little butter, vinegar, and salt and pepper. It’s delish!! You could easily substitute Kale, or even Spinach in place of the Swiss Chard. Use what’s most readily available. This Swiss Chard is called Rainbow Lights Swiss Chard. Each stem is a different color of the rainbow. Reds, pinks, yellows, oranges and then the deep green leaves. It’s a beautiful vegetable. I used red and yellow cherry tomatoes, but again—It’s about the colors for me. Serve along side a nice slice of Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat Bread toasted and you’ve got a complete breakfast. Way to start your day out with veggies! It will only get better from here:)
- 1 t. Olive Oil
- Handful Swiss Chard, Kale or Spinach chopped into rough bits
- 1 clove garlic minced finely
- Handful of halved Cherry Tomatoes
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 Soft Cooked Fried Egg per person (You can have a scrambled egg too.)
In a medium saute pan pour olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Place all the veggies in the pan and stir gently until the Swiss Chard is wilted and the tomatoes start to break down. It only takes about 4-5 minutes. Divide among serving plates and top each with a soft cooked fried egg:) Serve with fruit and enjoy a perfect morning!
