Middle Eastern Hash


This is my favorite “anytime” meal because it’s quick and tastes fantastic. It’s great as a filling breakfast or brunch, but it makes a light, healthy, flavorful lunch or dinner, too.

  • Cook Time: 20 MINUTES
  • Total Time: 20 MINUTES
  • Yield: 2 1x



  • 2 tablespoons (30 g/1.1 oz) ghee, lard, or virgin coconut oil
  • 1 small (70 g/2.5 oz) white or yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium (60 g/2.1 oz) green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 medium (60 g/2.1 oz) red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium (100 g/3.5 oz) tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons (8 g/0.3 oz) freshly chopped cilantro or parsley, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small bunch (100 g/3.5 oz) kale, chopped, stems removed
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml/2 oz) chicken stock, bone broth, or vegetable stock
  • 4 large pastured eggs
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml/0.5 oz) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml/1 oz) extra-virgin olive oil


  • Heat a large pan or pot greased with ghee. (It should be deep enough to fit
    all the vegetables.)
  • Once hot, add the onion and cook over medium-high heat
    until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and peppers, and cook for 2 to
    3 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the tomato and all the spices andseasonings and mix well.
  • Add the kale and chicken stock, mix, and cook fora few minutes until the kale is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Use a spatula to make 4 wells in the mixture.
  • Crack 1 egg into each well and cook until the whites are opaque and cooked through and the egg yolks are still runny.
  • Remove from the heat, drizzle the hash with the lemon juice
    and olive oil, and garnish with more cilantro.

Tip: To speed things up, you can use whole chard leaves (including stalks) or collard greens: Swiss
chard takes just a minute to cook, while kale takes 5 to 7 minutes.
