How Do I Make Egg Ricotta Toast with Garlic?

  1. Sauté the spinach: in a small pan, add the olive oil and chopped garlic, sauté over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Add spinach, and cook for an additional 2 minutes until kale has wilted and is a deep green color. When spinach has wilted, move it to one side of the pan, and crack an egg in the unused pan space. Allow egg to fry for about 6-7 mintues until the egg white has firmed and there is no clear egg white left.
  2. Toast the bread under the broiler for 3 minutes per side, or in a toaster. Spread each toast piece with ricotta in a thick layer.
  3. Add the sautéed spinach and crushed chili flakes. Top with an egg and fresh parsley.
  4. Add an optional sprinkle of sea salt, and enjoy!
