Now that I live on my own I can't be out brunching and lunching like I used to. So! I made a fancy Brooklyn inspired brunch for myself. When I cook.... especially when I'm making it up along the way... I tend to not measure. This is exactly why I don't bake. I just don't like following directions! So below, I have left a general idea of how I made this.
armesan cheese (grated)
1/4 cup of olive oil
3 large cloves of garlic (minced)
thyme, salt, & pepper
Take a 1/2 bunch of kale, chop it up, rinse, and set aside in a bowl. Then cook up 4 strips of turkey bacon, chop, and sprinkle over kale.
For the dressing squeeze two full lemons and mix into your salad as well as one large handful of parmesan cheese. Then warm about a 1/4 of a cup or less of olive oil in a small pot with 3 large cloves of garlic, minced, over medium heat. Heat for only 1 minute and make sure to NOT brown the garlic. Let it cool for a few minutes before mixing it into your salad.
For your soft boiled egg, bring water to a boil in a pot (enough water to fully submerge your egg). Once your water is boiling bring it down to a simmer and carefully place your egg in the water using a spoon. Let it simmer for 7 minutes and then rinse your egg under icy cold water for 1-2 minutes.
After pealing and cutting your egg in half place it on top of your salad. Sprinkle some salt, pepper and thyme over top and enjoy!!
