instructions
Make the soft-boiled eggs:
1 Make the soft-boiled eggs:

Fill a small pot with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs. Cook, uncovered, 6 to 7 minutes. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Wipe out the pot. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Prepare the ingredients & marinate the radishes:
2 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the radishes:

While the eggs cook, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. In a bowl, combine the feta (crumbling before adding), lemon purée, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. 

Make the pesto rice:
3 Make the pesto rice:

While the radishes marinate, in the same pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the pesto until thoroughly combined.

Cook the kale & serve your dish:
4 Cook the kale & serve your dish:

 While the rice cooks, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Serve the pesto rice topped with the cooked kale, marinated radishes (including any liquid), seasoned eggs, and lemon feta. Enjoy!
