I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Sabrina Dora López in a brunch at Paradise Farms. The food she prepared was glorious and she was very generous to share her special egg scramble recipe with me. Believe me; this dish is spectacular, equally good served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
A sprinkling of red pepper flakes on top kicks up the flavour.
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1-pint grape tomatoes (about 2 cups)
1-pint grape tomatoes (about 2 cups)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped 6 cups kale leaves 1/2 cup chopped scallions
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped Crushed red pepper flakes 6 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
6 large eggs, beaten
Chopped crushed red pepper flakes for garnish
Heat 2 tsp oil in a large, heavy, well-seasoned skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are lightly browned and blistered, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Spread half of the kale leaves onto a roasting pan, drizzle with oil and roast at 425 degrees for 20 minutes until leaves are crispy. In the same skillet (do not wash), heat remaining 2 tsp oil. Add other half of kale, scallions, thyme and a pinch of red pepper flakes; sauté until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Arrange kale evenly over the surface of skillet. Scatter blistered tomatoes over kale and season with salt and pepper. Pour eggs over vegetables and remove from heat. Immediately stir with a heatproof spatula until eggs are gently scrambled, about 1 minute. Serve hot!
You can also serve as pictures, in a big serving bowl. Scramble the eggs first, then top with the tomatoes and then with the kale.
