green eggs gluten-fre recipe st. patrick's day

Green Eggs

When the boys were little we used to have green eggs for breakfast everyday.  They grew out of that phase a while ago and now I think this Green Eggs recipe is perfect for St. Patrick’s day.

Now when I make these, I serve them with chicken breakfast links and my Dark Rye Bread (as shown above).  Green eggs are a colorful, fun, super healthy, hearty way to get in green veggies at the start of your day.  You can also make these yummy gluten free, dairy free eggs with spinach.  Here’s the recipe.

Green Eggs
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large kale leaves (do not trim or remove stems)
  • pinch celtic sea salt
  • oil of your choice for frying pan
  1. Place eggs, kale leaves and salt in vitamix
  2. Blend on high until smooth
  3. Heat oil in pan over medium heat
  4. Pour egg mixture in pan
  5. Allow eggs to cook a bit, then scramble
  6. Cook eggs to your preferred doneness
  7. Serve

I’m chilling today and making Hamantachen after a wild weekend of partying with some amazing women.  With St. Patrick’s Day and Purim so close together, there is lots of baking to be done over here.  Tomorrow, I’m hosting a huge Purim party for our Chavurah.  Later this week, I’ll be posting some new Hamantaschen recipes so stay tuned. 

For now, here are some more gluten free St. Patty’s Day recipes from friends:

    I now have Dr seuss in my head: “I do not like them, Sam I am!” A Fun St Pats recipe.

    p.s. I think a typo-serving with skinless “breakfast links”? :)

    I have been following Bee Wilder’s program for candidiasis in which she tells us all veggies must be well-cooked. I did try Kale Chips, however, as I wanted a new way to eat the nasty stuff but it gave my belly such an ache!

    So my concern is with these leaves not well-cooked, others could have gut issues and now know why…

    I DO appreciate your recipes, tho!

      people who are sensitive to raw greens (thanks for bringing it up as i was never aware!) can easily steam/boil or cook the greens in the way they prefer and blend them with the eggs. i imagine you would wring out the excess moisture beforehand.

    I’ve never had any type of green eggs, but ones made with kale seem right up my alley. ;-) Thanks so much for the mention, Elana. Now I want green eggs and ham and my mint chocolate chip ice cream … although not together. LOL

    Spending time with girlfriends is such a gift, isn’t it? Hope you had a nice quiet day, dear.

    Sounds delicious, not sure I can handle the green color though! Can’t wait for your Hamantaschen though!! Made them the other day, and they were a huge hit (well the few that I did not eat myself were ;) YUM!).

    I made your “rye” bread for the 1st time last week- great bread! Nice to have alternatives to bread that are not only GF but also yeast free. Thanks

    had to laugh…many years ago my sister made my nephews,,then in 1st and 2nd eggs and ham for breakfast. they must have shared this at school, because soon a social worker came to check on what was going on in the kitchen at their house.

    I will also have to remember this recipe next year on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd… my kids cooked green eggs at school by adding food coloring… this recipe would be soooo much healthier!! :)

    Wow what a great idea! Green eggs.. i have never tried this but I will give this a go tomorrow maybe with spinach instead. Thanks so much for sharing this, I’ve been wanting a change for breakfast! I love scrambled eggs and I think ill add some chilli and garlic too…. delicious!

    When I first saw this recipe I thought it might have had green dye in it but to my surprise and delight you used Kale…a very healthy alternative to this fun St. Patrick’s day breakfast!

    I’ve done this for years as a way to sneak more greens in. I use 1/2 lb organic spinach, and 1 clove of garlic to hide the taste, and 6 eggs. My husband and I would take turns quoting “Green Eggs & Ham”, and say we make green eggs & cheese. Fun food!

  11. Laura Ruby says

    When I put Kale in a smoothie – raw – it never bothers my stomach. Also in the Blendtec green soup which never quite gets to boiling, but gets hot. Of course, we don’t all have the same stomachs.

  12. says

    I cannot even tell you how this thrills me! I love the idea of green eggs, just never wanted to use any sort of dye. This is going into my breakfast rotation NOW.

  13. says

    Hey! For some reason I have not had those Coleman’s breakfast sausages. I always purchase nitrate free ones but I will be on the lookout for these. Love the green eggs with kale. Great idea!

  14. says

    I thought these looked so weird that I HAD to try them for myself. Oh my goodness, am I glad that I did!!!!!!!! So delicious! Wow! Thank you!

  15. Sara says

    If I don’t have a Vitamix, is there another effective way to purée the kale to the right consistency for these since I really want to try them for me and my boys?

  16. Eric says

    Hi Elana, I’m pumped about your comment, ” I’ll be posting some new Hamantaschen recipes so stay tuned.”

    Super ready to try some new ones. I made your current paleo variety, but subbed organic sugar free cranberries for the currants, which resulted in EVERYONE at my office (GF or not) loving them!!!

    Chag Sameach,
