Kale & Eggs

If we’re being honest, Kale was something we had very little interest in. As a matter of fact, we had zero interest in it. It wasn’t until a trip to the grocery store where they were completely sold out of spinach (we were comfortable with spinach), that we decided to give it a try. So we did. We wanted to like it, we really did…turns out, we LOVED it. So, there started our new found love for Kale and we can’t get enough of it. We try to incorporate it every chance we get.  One recipe we keep going back to is our kale and eggs with white cannellini beans and paprika. It’s a perfect dish for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. Not to mention, it’s super simple and quick to make.
