Healthy Scrambled Eggs with Kale and Jalapeño Goat Cheese Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson |

Last night was one of those nights where I didn’t have much in the fridge and was too tired to run to the grocery store.  I wanted something hearty that would also incorporate some much needed greens.

I had a hodge-podge of ingredients; eggskalegarlic, red peppers, yellow squash…none of them really seemed like a perfect fit but I decided to just wing it and see what happened. The result was surprisingly delicious!

I ended up making Scrambled Eggs with Kale and Jalapeño Goat cheese and a side of sauteed yellow squash and red peppers. The flavors actually complemented each other very well! This just goes to show, you can still make a delicious, healthy and satisfying meal on the fly, sometimes it just takes a bit of creativity! This is especially true for those of you getting CSA/local veggie deliveries!

All in all, this took less than 20mins to make and I didn’t have to stop at the grocery store! It was delicious, filling, and super healthy!!

Hopefully this post will inspire you to make the most with what you’ve got in your fridge, you never know, you could end up creating something really fabulous!!

To Make the Scrambled Eggs:

In a skillet I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic, green onion, and shallot first. I also added some sea salt to give the shallots some flavor. Next I added the chopped kale and cooked until soft, adding a little more sea salt to taste. Once wilted, I added the beaten eggs and goat cheese and cooked until the eggs were firm.

To Make Zucchini and Red Pepper:

In a skillet I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic, green onion, and shallot first just like I did with the eggs. Next I added the chopped yellow squash and red pepper and cooked until soft, adding a little more sea salt to taste.
