Huevos Rancheros with Kale

(Gluten Free, Meat Free, Dairy Free -feel free to add meat or dairy if you want | Paleo-Friendly) Real talk. I love brunch. I mean, it’s basically one of my favourite things to do on the weekend (and in life generally). So, the weekend is here, and it’s time to brunch! Yes! These rockin’ Huevos Rancheros will not disappoint. There are a few things I love about this recipe: it’s a one-dish wonder (no one wants to spend their weekend doing dishes!) and it’s really flexible (you can easily change it based on what’s hanging out in your fridge). Plus, it’s packed full of veggies to jump-start your weekend, which is just a massive bonus! So enjoy! And, please invite me over when you make these? I’ll need to ‘trial’ them 😉


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and diced
  • 2 peppers chopped (I used red and orange)
  • ½ red chili diced (if you like a little spice)
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne (if you like a little spice)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 handful of kale
  • 3 spring (green) onions, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 170C (350F) –if you have a skillet that can go into oven.
  2. Throw butter, chopped onion and garlic into skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes at medium high.
  3. Add peppers and red chili (optional) and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add chopped, closed cup mushrooms and black beans.
  5. Add cumin, cayenne (optional) and oregano to sautéed vegetables and mix.
  6. Cook for 3-5 more minutes and make holes in vegetable medley for eggs.
  7. Crack 4 eggs and add them to holes in skillet. It should look something like this.Huevos Rancheros Prep
  8. Cover eggs with a few handfuls of kale and 3 chopped spring (green) onions
  9. Put skillet in oven (if oven-safe) and bake for 15 minutes (or until eggs don’t jiggle when you give the skillet a little shake). If you don’t have frying pan that can go in oven, just do this on stovetop.

Tips: Top with salsa, avocado, green chilies or whatever you have in fridge! If you eat dairy, add some cheese on top of the eggs a few minutes before they’re done baking. If you want to add meat, throw some chorizo in with onion/garlic/butter mix.
