2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice enough shallots to measure ¼ cup.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
  • Strip the oregano leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Rinse the chickpeas.


Cook the vegetables

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the shallots and garlic, season with salt, and cook until the shallots start to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and paprika and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the tomatoes, oregano, and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Add the kale and chickpeas, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the kale is tender and the sauce is thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables simmer, cook the eggs.


Poach the eggs

Bring a medium sauce pot of lightly salted water and 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl. Using a slotted spoon, swirl the water to make a gentle whirlpool. Slide the egg into the whirlpool. Repeat with the remaining egg. Cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft, 3 to 5 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 2 minutes longer. Using the slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
While the eggs poach, warm the naan.


Toast the naan

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying or grill pan over medium heat, warm the naan, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster. Tear in half.



Transfer the kale, chickpeas, and sauce to individual bowls. Top with the eggs, sprinkle with the za’atar, and serve with the naan.
