As someone who prefers savoury foods to sweet, traditional breakfasts don’t appeal to me. Therefore, you can always find me enjoying some type of savoury breakfast. One of my favourite ways to satisfy my need of having something savoury is by eating a breakfast salad! Truthfully, a breakfast salad is just a salad eaten at breakfast time, but this particular recipe includes soft-boiled eggs, which makes this salad even more breakfast appropriate.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Gently place eggs into boiling water with a slotted spoon, turn heat down to maintain a gentle boil and cook eggs for seven minutes. Transfer eggs into a bowl of ice water and let cool.
Meanwhile, prepare the salad by placing the kale into a mixing bowl. Add olive oil, apple cider vinegar and whole grain mustard. Massage the dressing into the kale, ensuring each piece of kale is coated with dressing and softened.
Place kale into each of the four salad bowls.
Next, top each bowl with tomatoes and toss kale and tomatoes together. Then garnish with chives, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds.
Top with 1⁄4 sliced avocado and two peeled egg halves.
Finish by lightly garnishing each bowl with crushed red chili flakes. Serve.
