I bring you sunshine in a dish.
And I know that ANYONE would be totally down with eating something that has the title of SUNSHINE in a dish, don't you. How could this possible be bad right? After a season of grain bowls and polenta, I am TOTALLY down with eating my greens.
Actually to be honest I am ALWAYS down with eating my greens.
Anyways, this recipe to me SCREAMS spring, what with the pistachios and the green action going on here. Don't you just love spring? My birthday is in spring, so that might be a lot of the reason why I am so infatuated with it. And flowers. And don't even get me started on all of the pastels. I swear I wait for every freaking year. Today I wore a neon orange dress. Now, I know that orange is not the most FLATTERING color on an inidivual, but I looked like a ray of sunshine (take that for what you will).
Also what I wait for: PEEPS. Does anyone else love them. I used to pop em when I was a kid though I'm pretty sure there is ALLL kinds of funky stuff in the yellow dye, you now what I'm talking about. Actually now that I think about it all of the Easter candy is great... actually ALL candy is great. I never met a chocolate bar I didn't like.
Don't get me started on Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.
Anyway, back to the dish. One of the reasons I’m so nutty over this dish is because the runny eggs mix into and create a delicious rich coating on the greens with the yogurt and the tahini. And then you scoop it up with the pancake and it's so creamy dreamy. If you’re feeling frisky you could even just add a farm fresh yolk right down in the center of the whole shebang instead of a fried egg. But I was afraid of freaking people out.
So there you have it: chickpea socca, chard, pistachio dukkah (aka flava BOMB), yogurt-y tahini, and a fried egg. Are you in heaven? I think so.
