Servings: 2 Prep 25 mins Cook 50 mins Start to Finish 1 hr 15 mins


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 green onion, white and light green parts, finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping cup leafy greens (baby kale, spinach, Swiss chard or all of the above)
  • 1/2 cup cooked whole grains (wheatberries, farro, barley or millet)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
  • Crusty bread, toasted English muffins or warm corn tortillas for serving

Make It

1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and kosher salt; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the green onion and garlic and saute until soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Add greens, grains and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and saute until greens are wilted and grains are warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Decrease heat to low and pour in egg mixture, gently stirring to combine it with the greens and grains. Continue stirring until eggs are softly scrambled, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in chives and season with pepper.

3. Serve hot with a sprinkling of sea salt on top and crusty bread, toasted English muffins or warm corn tortillas on the side.
