Recipe from Brit+Co - Photo Credit: NYT Cooking


  • 10-12 fresh tomatillos, peeled
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large bunch kale, stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 1 large bunch spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch parsley, stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4-5 sprigs dill
  • sliced crusty bread, for serving


  • Set oven to broil and remove husks from tomatillos. Place tomatillos on a baking sheet and broil for 6-8 minutes, or until the tops are blistered and soft. Remove from the oven and use a fork to mash. Set aside.
  • Into a large pan over medium heat add butter and diced onions and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until onions are soft. Add kale, spinach, parsley, garlic, and the blistered tomatillos to the pan and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until all of the greens are wilted. Stir in salt, cumin, red chili flakes, black pepper, and lemon juice until incorporated.
  • Using the back of a spoon, make 6 small wells in the greens and then crack an egg into each well. Cover the pan with a lid and let cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the egg whites are no longer translucent.
  • Remove from the heat and garnish with fresh dill. Serve immediately with crusty bread.
