Huevos con Verdolagas

 Something new to try from the farmers market. Verdolagas or purslane (Portulaca oleracea), an invasive succulent weed to most gardens. Propagated by it's many seeds from tiny yellow flowers. The young leaves stems are preferred over the tough old growth. Flavor is similar to watercress.

2tbsp lard
1/2 yellow onion chopped
150g purslane
1 medium tomato diced
3 pastured eggs
salt and pepper to taste

Melt lard over medium high heat, add onion and salt, cook till translucent. Add tomato and purslane stir fry till wilted, mix in egg. Cook till eggs are no longer runny. Garnish with cilantro and salsa.

Enjoyed the purslane, will need to try it in more recipes.
