Eggs In A Nest

Recipe from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

Ingredients and Steps

  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice 
    • Cook rice with 4 cups of water in a covered pot while other ingredients are being prepared
  • Olive oil - a few tablespoons
  • 1 medium onion, chopped, and garlic to taste
    • Saute onions and garlic in olive oil in a wide skillet until lightly golden
  • Carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried tomatoes 
    • Add and saute for a few more minutes, adding just enough water to rehydrate the tomatoes
  • 1 really large bunch of chard, coarsely chopped
    • Mix with other vegetables and cover pan for a few minutes.  Uncover, stir well, then use the back of the spoon to make depressions in the cooked leaves, circling the pan like numbers on a clock
  • 8 eggs
    • Break and egg into each depression, being careful to keep yolks whole.  Cover pan again and allow eggs to poach for 3 to 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve over rice.
