Dr. Seuss classic Green eggs and Ham makes an excellent breakfast for the whole family.
Everybody knows and loves Dr. Seuss classic Green eggs and Ham! And that’s what makes it so appealing to kids. This recipe is fun to make together with your kids and an excellent way to feed you little ones some green leafy vegetables at the same time! Even the most picky eaters will be willing to try something they’ve read about and then made for themselves. I am a big fan of cooking kids because it allows us to
- spend quality time together
- teach our little ones healthy eating habits
- encourage them try a variety of foods
- help them overcome fear of new foods
Just make sure to give yourself more time to cook with your kids than you usually need to cook for them.
Health Benefits Of Kale
Kale and some other green leafy vegetables like mustard greens and collard greens are some of the healthiest vegetables you can add to your cooking repertoire. They belong to the broccoli (cruciferous) family and share many of the same health benefits. For instance, these vegetables are very high in folate, vitamin C, K and carotenes, iron and calcium. They contain important compounds that help protect and prevent cancer, support the health of the eyes, and play an important role in detoxification pathways in the liver.
Green Eggs And Ham
2-3 kale leaves, stem removed
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil or butter
- Combine the eggs and kale leaves in a high power blender like Vitamix, add salt and pepper and blend together until smooth.
- Warm up the butter or oil in a frying pan, preferably with a ceramic non-stick surface, over medium heat. Pour the mixture into the pan and let cook for about a minute undisturbed.
- With the help of a spatula start scraping the egg mixture off the pan, just like you would do when making scrambled eggs. Cook for 2-3 minutes constantly scraping.
- Serve with a thin slice of Rosemary Pork Should
