Recipe Cost for 4 People: $4.15 ($1.04/serving)*
Preparation Time: 25 minutes
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 medium unpeeled red potatoes
  • ½ T olive oil
  • 1 bunch Italian kale (or other Kale variety), approx. 6 oz.
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
Beat eggs, pepper and salt in large bowl, set aside. Microwave potatoes until slightly soft, but not completely cooked, then cube. (Alternate method without microwave: Cube potatoes and boil five minutes until slightly soft, drain.) Chop remaining vegetables while potatoes cool. Mix vegetables together. Heat oil in a 10-inch non-stick skilet. Sauté vegetables for 5-8 minutes; add to eggs and mix well. Pour egg-vegetable mixture into the same skillet. Cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set, about 8-10 minutes. Cover and let sit until eggs are completely set, about 5 minutes.

Complete this Plate: Serve with an 8 oz glass of non-fat milk and ½ sliced orange.
