Kale Salad with Mushroom Omelet





1 tablespoon miso paste (or 1 teaspoon soy sauce)
4 eggs
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chopped mushrooms of your choice
8 big handfuls chopped kale, tough stems discarded
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup unsalted chopped raw pecans or walnuts
3 ounces grated Pecorino Romano cheese

1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon chile oil or chile sauce (optional)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
freshly ground black pepper


1. Make the salad dressing by combining the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid (like a mason jar) and shake well to combine. Taste and add more salt as needed.
2. Whisk the miso paste with the eggs. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and swirl in the olive oil. Add in the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes, or until mushrooms softened. Add in the egg and turn the heat to medium. Let cook for 2 minutes. Cover and let cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until eggs are set.

3. While eggs are cooking, place the kale in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt. Using massaging motion, rub the kale leaves together to break up and soften the kale.

4. When ready to serve, slice omelet in strips. Toss kale with some of the dressing (I used about 1/4 cup of the dressing), chopped nuts and Pecorino Romano cheese. Serve with omelet.

Poached Egg With Sweet Potato And Brussels Sprouts Hash




Recipe (Enough to serve four)

Brussels sprouts – 1/2 a bundle, each sprout sliced into four disk

Sweet potato – 2 peeled and chopped into small cubes of roughly equal size

Red onion – 1/2 roughly chopped

Garlic – 2 cloves minced

White pepper – 1 tsp

Salt – about 1/2tsp or to taste

Black pepper – pinch or two to taste

Coconut oil -2TB (feel free to use any oil, I just like coconut oil at higher temps)

Eggs – one egg for each serving

Thyme hollandaise

Egg yolks – 2

Lemon – juice of 1/2 a lemon

Butter – 4 TB melted

Fresh Thyme – 2tsp chopped

Water – 1TB

Salt and pepper – a few pinches or to taste

Melt you 4 tablespoons of butter in a small sauce pan. Add the 2 tsp of thyme and cook for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit to infuse while you prepare the rest of your meal.  Also set out the eggs for poaching on the counter, you want to bring the eggs to room temperature before cooking, it helps with poaching.

Chop up sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, red onion, and garlic. Heat a medium sauce pot filled with two inches of water until simmering. This will be used later for your hollandaise, so leave this pot aside (simmering) for several minutes until you have started your hash.

In a separate skillet heat oil on medium low heat and add garlic. Cook for a minute until fragrant. Add onion to this skillet and increase heat to medium. Cook for a few minutes until onion starts to soften. Add sweet potatoes and increase heat to medium high/ high heat. Cook about 8-10 minutes stirring/flipping occasionally until potatoes are almost cooked and start to brown. Add Brussels sprouts and cook for several more minutes until starting to color (4-5 minutes). Season with white pepper, black pepper, and salt.


Now, while sweet potatoes are cooking, you can work on the hollandaise sauce. Combine egg yolks, 1 TB of water and juice of 1/2 a lemon in a small-ish stainless steel bowl and place over the prepared pot of simmering water (hold with a oven mit or rag – the bowl will get warm). You want the bowl to be hovering over the simmering water, not touching the water if possible. Whisk eggs/water/lemon juice together for several minutes. It will start to get foamy and thicken. You want to thicken your eggs but not cook them. After 2-3 minutes remove from head and slowly drizzle in butter/thyme mixture while whisking vigorously. Keep whisking until your hollandaise has thickened up some. Set aside.


After you finish the hollandaise, use your simmering pot of water and fill with more water (make sure it is a few inches full) and add in a splash of apple cider vinegar. Heat the pot up to a high simmer/low boil. At this time spoon your hash mixture onto plates to be ready for your poached eggs and get out a wooden spoon. Crack an egg into a small ramekin. Once water is ready, dip the edge of the ramekin into the water and gently pour the egg into the water (one at a time). Use the wooden spoon to gently swish the water surrounding the egg towards the egg to help hold the shape. Cook on a high simmer for 3-4 minutes ( I like my yolk runny) or longer for a cooked yolk. Remove egg with a slotted spoon, let drain and place on top of hash. Spoon over hollandaise. Repeat process for any other servings. Devour and lick plate clean. Happy brunching!

Breakfast Pancakes




1 1/2 c Flour, all-purpose

1 t Salt

3 tb Sugar

1 3/4 ts Baking powder

1/4 ts Vanilla essence

2 Eggs

3 tb Butter, melted

10 oz Milk

Put a frying pan on a low to medium heat and melt the butter. Whilst the butter is melting, measure the flour and sift into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, sugar and baking powder. Measure the milk in a measuring jug. Separate the eggs and place the whites in a cup, adding the yolks to the milk. Add the melted butter from the frying pan. Remove as much from the pan as you can, but don’t be too particular. The remaining butter in the frying pan will be used to cook the pancakes in. I use a rubber spatula to get most of it off the pan. Leave the ring on, but don’t put the pan back on it. (I have an electric cooker which takes a long time to heat up). In this way you can start cooking the pancakes as soon as the batter is ready. When the butter has coagulated, add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix them up. I use a metal spoon. It is at this stage you can judge whether the mixture has the right consistency. Wash the measuring jug and dry it thoroughly. Pour the egg whites into it and whisk with an electric hand-held whisk. I whisk them until they are quite hard. (If there are lumps in the batter, you can user the whisk to get rid of them.) Using the spatula (from the butter, right?), transfer all the egg whites into the big bowl. Fold the egg whites into the batter with the metal spoon until they are all incorporated. The batter is now ready. Put the frying pan back on the heat and wait until it is to a reasonable temperature. I can’t be more specific because it depends on your cooker and the frying pan that you are using. Make the pancakes one at a time, turning them over when the underside is cooked. Eat immediately with butter and maple syrup. NOTES: * Light and fluffy breakfast pancakes — The formula comes from “The Joy of Cooking” by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker. I bought the book when I was visiting California a few years back. The pancakes are to my liking, but my wife has had to endure vast quantities of failures before I got the right technique. These pancakes are amazing for their stupefying ability. No more than three can be eaten in one day. A slow and painful death will result from pancakes. * The order that I do things is the result of much experimentation. I have a Creda Cavalier and use a Fissler German-made corrugated-bottom frying pan. With this combination I set the ring to 2.75-3.0. One way to test is to place a small dollop of batter in the frying pan. It should take about 1-2 minutes to brown. As the underside is browning, bubbles should be forming on the top surface. The consistency of the batter and the temperature of cooking are correct when the bubbles fail to burst when the underside is fully cooked. * Now that I know what I’m doing, they’re easy, but I had a awful lot of failures to start with. Don’t expect success the first time. You won’t be disappointed. The effort is worth it in the long run. What is important is to get the moisture content of the batter correct. If it is too sloppy; then the pancakes will be flat and stodgy. If the batter is too dry; then the pancakes will burn before they are cooked. : Difficulty: moderate until you learn the technique. : Time: 30 minutes preparation, 30 minutes cooking. : Precision: measure the ingredients.
