This is an old fashioned dish that many of our parents or grandparents were raised on. Pick your own wild greens if you can and use organic eggs for a completely natural meal with an old fashioned feel to it!
- Wash the wild greens. Boil them in a large pot full of water and a generous amount of salt for 10-15 minutes, until they soften.
- Drain and let them sit in the strainer until all of the liquid has drained.
- Place a large, deep frying pan over high heat. Let it get very hot and add some olive oil and the wild greens.
- Sauté until all of the juices evaporate, stirring with a spoon.
- Beat the eggs in a bowl using a hand whisk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the greens in the pan.
- Turn the heat to medium and cook the omelet on one side.
- Use a plate to help you flip it and cook the other side.
Serve with some crunchy country bread and some cheese!
