What You Need

Yogurt topping

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt

Breakfast bowls

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 portabella mushroom caps, cleaned and thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 heads baby bok choy, sliced
  • 1 cup pearled barley, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 4 large eggs, fried

What You Do

  1. To make the topping, heat the olive oil in a medium-skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the kale and cook for 2 more minutes, until wilted. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Spoon the yogurt into a small food processor or cup of a single serving blender. Add the tahini, curry powder, and salt. Add the kale and garlic. Pulse in 10 second intervals until the kale is finely chopped and all ingredients are combined. Set aside.
  3. Start on the breakfast bowls by heating the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium-skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and toss to cook in the oil for 5 minutes, until they become tender. Toss with the salt. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and add the bok choy to the hot skillet. Cook on medium-heat for 1 minute, until it begins to wilt. Remove from heat.
  4. Assemble the breakfast by adding an equal amount of barley to each of four bowls. Top with greens, sliced mushrooms, and red bell pepper. Add a large dollop of the topping and place an egg in each bowl. Serve right away.
