Paleo-friendly and oh-so-delicious! These veggie egg nests are just as cute as they are healthy - 💯
This recipe is from my favorite - @goop
1 medium zucchini
1 small sweet potato
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 cup chopped kale
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1. Cut the ends off of your sweet potato and zucchini, and spiralize using the smallest noodle shape attachment. Trim the “noodles” so they are not too long.
2. In a medium-sized non-stick sauté pan (we use our 10-inch green pan) add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once hot, add scallions and spiralized sweet potatoes and cook for 3-5 minutes, until sweet potatoes are soft but not mushy.
3. Remove to a bowl with the spiralized zucchini, kale, thyme, and salt and pepper; toss all ingredients together.
4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the same sauté pan over medium-low. Add ¼ of the spiralized veggie mixture and form into a nest-type shape with a shallow hole in the middle, leaving room for the egg. Repeat this once more so 2 nests are in the pan at the same time.
5. Crack an egg into the middle of each nest, cover the pan with a lid, and cook for 4-8 minutes, until the egg is cooked to your preference. Repeat once more with the remaining spiralized mixture and eggs, to make a total of 4 nests.
6. Serve with sliced avocado, Aleppo pepper, red pepper flakes for more kick (my favorite) and even sesame seeds. I serve mine with extra red pepper flakes and a sprig of thyme!
