Creamy spinach with fried eggs

Creamy spinach with eggs

I recently hosted an event together with a dear friend and colleague of mine themed ‘a good start’. The primary purpose was to increase the awareness of having healthy and well balanced morning rituals – seen from all perspectives both bodily, nutritious and holistic.
I did an hour of morning nutrition lecturing, and while preparing the class I did a lot of thinking about my own morning preferences and rituals. First of all I am a morning person. Big time. I always run or work out in the morning. I often wake before my alarm sets off and I am almost always eager to get out of bed and start the day, plus I’m super hungry. In fact one of the last things I think about before I fall asleep is what I wanna have for breakfast, and it is most often something with fruit, yoghurt, muesli, pancakes etc. meaning that I prefer my breakfast sweet and fresh.

Eggs are one of the things I like to include in my breakfast whether it is a boiled egg on the side of some toast or a banana omelette with fruit. But this time I actually wanted to create a savory morning meal with greens, fibers and no sugar – just to be able to switch, try new things and maybe open up to new rituals and preferences.

To be honest I have had this meal for dinner quite some times. I must admit that it is the time of day where I prefer to have a savory and filling meal. But Jonas prefer a savory breakfast and he has been very pleased with the combination of eggs, something creamy and leafy greens. It is a super easy recipe that requires few cheap ingredients and only one pan to cook the whole thing. It is also a very light meal with only about 350 kcal pr portion, which allows you to splurge with an Italian ice cream after dinner or in the afternoon. And I do believe it is handy to calculate with an ice cream or two when we have a whole lot of heat and traveling going on.

And speaking of traveling we are currently located in Shanghai airport waiting to board a connection flight to Kuala Lumpur. It is always fun to sit and watch a foreign culture and pick up on all the details that differ people from one another. And we just had a lovely lunch ‘bibimbap’ at a Korean restaurant – even though we are not in Korea there is a huge difference beyween a Nordic bibimbap and an Asian one, and I can for sure say I just had the best Bibimbap of my life…

One last thing … Happy Birthday Dad!!

    This looks delicious Josephine! My husband Aaron loves creamy spinach so I think he’d be very pleased with this beautiful savoury breakfast/snack/dinner (I love meals that can be eaten at any time of day!). Beautiful photographs. Glad that you’re enjoying your summer xxx

    Oh me too, those meals are at the top f my list as well, sometimes I even make myself a savory porridge with scramble egg, a teaspoon of butter and crisp pear slices – so goood!

  3. Ooo, this looks so awesome! I love spelt pearls, haven’t had that in so long. This would be an excellent breakfast, but I can totally see myself having this for lunch or dinner as well! :)

    I’m sorry, I don’t under stand the amount of salt – 1,5 teaspoon. Do you mean 1/2 teaspoon? Even that sounds like too much.

  17. Josephine MaleneJosephine Malene03-25-2015

    Hi Naomi. In the recipe I have simply stated ‘oil’ and in the directions I suggest that you add around 1 tsp of oil, which I think is a rather small amount, I would gladly add 1 Tbsp when cooking this :)
