2 Servings, 740 Calories/Serving

5 - 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • SAUSAGE-KALE SCRAMBLE
  • Four 1-ounce fresh breakfast sausage links
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • 2 ounces baby kale
  • OVERNIGHT OATS
  • 2 or 3 Medjool dates (with pits)
  • 1 cup gluten-free old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Maple-vanilla blend (maple syrup - vanilla extract)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ cup pecan pieces

Instructions

1

Prep and cook the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick with a fork.
In a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, cook the sausages, turning once or twice, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, then thinly slice on the diagonal. While the sausages cook, prepare the eggs.

2

Prep and cook the eggs

  • In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the sausages, if dry, add 1 teaspoon butter or oil; warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the kale, season with salt, and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the eggs and cook until just set but still moist, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the sausages.

3

Serve

Transfer the scramble to individual plates and serve.

1

Prep the oats

The night before:
  • Pull the dates away from their pits; cut the fruit into thin strips.
In a medium bowl or jar, combine the dates, oats, almond milk, maple-vanilla blend, and cardamom. Season lightly with salt and stir until well combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

2

Finish the oats

The next morning:
  • Coarsely chop the pecans.
Stir the oats until well blended. If desired, in a small sauce pot over medium-low heat, warm the oats, or enjoy cold.

3

Serve

Transfer the oats to individual bowls, top with the pecans, and serve.
