INSTRUCTIONS

Whipped Feta

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Scrape down the edges of the bowl and process again until smooth and creamy. Set aside.

Baby Greens and Beets

  1. Heat olive oil is large, non-stick pan.
  2. Add all the ingredients and sauté for about 2 minutes. You want the greens and beets to be warmed but not cooked. Put on a place and set aside until ready to use.

Lemon Mint Vinaigrette

  1. Put all ingredients into a bowl and whisk until completely mixed.

Fried Eggs

  1. In a non-stick sauté pan, heat oil.
  2. Gently place eggs into the pan and cook until egg whites are opaque and no longer translucent. To get the jammy (runny) yolk keep eggs on the one side, do not flip them.

Assembly

  1. Scoop the whipped feta onto plate. Evenly spread it out.
  2. Place baby greens and beets to one side of the feta.
  3. Drizzle lemon mint vinaigrette over the whipped feta and greens.
  4. Sprinkle with pomegranate arils, a few mint leaves and Kalamata olives.
  5. Place eggs onto the whipped feta. Alternately they can be served on each person’s plate.
  6. Warm your pita bread and cut into wedges. Pita can be warmed in an oiled sauté pan or in the microwave. If using the microwave wrap pitas in kitchen towel to keep them from drying out.

Serve and enjoy!

NOTES: Small to medium beets can be boiled for 15-20 minutes. Beets will be done when a paring knife can easily pierce through all the way. Adjust timing for larger beets.

Eggs are cooked last so that they are warm and yolk remains runny.

Whipped feta and vinaigrette can be made up to 3 days before and kept refrigerated.
