Egg Blanket over Shiso and Rabe FlowersPrint Recipe
- 45 g Shiso leaves
- 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 30 g Broccoli Rabe Flower Buds
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- 2 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves
- 1 organic egg
- 1 tbsp grated Parmesan
- salt & pepper
- pinch of scallion micro greens
- 2 tbsp Kimchi (optional)
- 1 tbsp Gomasio (optional)
- 2 pieces gluten free toast
Heat 1/2 tbsp of the olive oil on medium/high heat in a non stick pan and add the shiso leaves and rabe flowers. Season with salt and pepper, add the red chili flakes and reduce heat to medium stirring to prevent burning while it cooks down for 8 minutes.
Plate the greens and add the remaining olive oil to the pan, crack open the egg on medium heat and fry it sunny side up shutting it after about 3 minutes and letting it finish cooking in the hot pan.
Place the parmesan on top of the greens, add scallion micro greens. Gently fold half of the egg white under itself as you remove it from the pan with a spoon and place it 1/2 on the greens with the yellow touching the greens. When you dig in the yolk will spill over the greens and parmesan creating a creamy texture. Optional to sprinkle Gomasio seasoning on top of everything. Serve Kimchi alongside it and toasted bread.
I am not vegan, just happen to have some recipes that fall in that category. I could never give up eggs. It must have not taken much creativity for the marketing teams to come up with the “incredible egg” slogan to promote the industry, because they are just that. Being one of the most nutrient dense and protein packed foods out there, they are a cooks dream for transforming just about any dish. From baking, to sauces, to thickening, to fluffy meringue, and pillowy soufflés there is no dish or cuisine that does not use the egg. And, if that wasn’t enough, they are portable! Hello my perfect little snack. Though they can be transformed into just about anything, sometimes they are just best in the most simple state and there are about 10 ways to make an egg. Served over a bed of greens, this egg gets quickly fried with the white half fold under itself so the yolk can do its thing and cascade over the Parmesan and greens to create a creamy texture. Make sure you get local organic farm fresh eggs if you want that beautiful yellow orange yolk!
