Make This Recipe


  • 3 large, Eggland's Best eggs
  • 12 oz broccoli florets
  • 2 15.5oz can chickpeas
  • 1 large clove garlic or 2 small cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup greens of choice (I used kale/spinach!)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add broccoli florets to a food processor and pulse until it resembles rice.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add greens, broccoli, chickpeas, and tomato paste. Stir to combine.
  5. Add in garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and remaining olive oil. Stir to combine.
  6. Cook for about ten minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  7. Break three Eggland’s Best eggs over mixture. Do so carefully so that the yolk stays intact to the membrane.
  8. Place skillet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove and garnish with fresh herbs of choice - I used cilantro.
