tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the cauliflower core; cut the head into small florets. Halve the baguette lengthwise. Peel the garlic; thinly slice 2 of the cloves and leave the remaining clove whole. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel the onion and cut into wedges; separate the layers. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Using a fork, crumble the cheese.

Roast the cauliflower
2 Roast the cauliflower

Place the cauliflower on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and the spice blend; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange the seasoned cauliflower in a single, even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned.

Make the garlic croutons
3 Make the garlic croutons

While the cauliflower roasts, place the baguette halves directly onto the oven rack, cut sides up. Toast in the oven 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cutting board. Rub the cut side of each baguette half with the whole garlic clove; discard the garlic clove. Medium dice the baguette halves.

Cook the vegetables
4 Cook the vegetables

While the baguette halves cool, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the kale and sliced garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until the kale is slightly wilted. Transfer to a large bowl. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the eggs
5 Cook the eggs

In the pan used to cook the kale, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Crack the eggs into the pan, keeping them separate; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without flipping, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat.
