Just put your egg and greens in ramekins, greased ramekin for the egg, steam on the rack in Instant Pot for two minutes, let sit for a bit, use oven mitts to remove ramekins, scoop food into bowl, add salt and pepper, and enjoy. Best bonus? There is no cleaner way to cook an egg.

Steam with Egg, serve with salt and pepper

Eating home grown food is easy. Just grow food and eat it.
That was how I thought before I began my eating homegrown journey. But, my mind changed as I encountered challenges. The first challenge was that the food I like to eat I was not able to grow. Partially because the Houston and Gulf Coast area has a climate that is different from the temperate climate I am grew up with, mostly because growing food takes attention and skill. I am a bit short on both. The second challenge was that the food I was able to grow, example, collard greens, I didn’t enjoy eating. The absolute easiest way to address these challenges is to change your attitude. Just WANT to eat what you can grow easily. This attitude change is what allowed me to revere collard greens. Not only because they survive when I ignore them, but also because eating collard greens has improved my life.
Your life will be improved also. Just eat the greens. BUT THEY TASTE AWFUL!!! You might be inclined to observe. So what. It isn’t about taste. If you give up on the expectation that every bite of food will taste good, you will start to feel good. I ate Okra Garden Supply Breakfast for breakfast 9 of the past 13 days and I am down a pant size and feel stronger. So, I feel completely secure in recommending this recipe (recipe in photo caption) to you. Try it! It is the best way to consistently incorporate home grown collard greens into your diet.
Ok, let me break it down: To save money and save the earth you have decided that you want to grow and eat your own food. You live in the Houston area. You are about to start/just started growing. You want to grow enough food that you can impact your family’s grocery budget. You are wisely focusing on growing collard greens. You have now harvested greens. Eat Okra Garden Supply Breakfast every day until you run out of greens. Slowly convince your family to also eat Okra Garden Supply Breakfast when they cannot deny the healthful improvement in your life once you started gardening and eating your harvest of collard greens.

Okra Garden Supply Breakfast, it feels good.

Also, salt and pepper are critical.

The blossom to represent picking okra, then the pod, slicing, tossing with corn meal and salt and pepper, getting oil the proper temperature, (I also just sort of sauté when I don’t feel like getting out that much oil), fry, drain, enjoy.  These Okra grew from plants that germinated outside in pots in January, 2017.
