 2 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
 200g baby kale
 1 lemon, rind finely grated, juiced

  1. Preheat oven to 120°C/100°C

for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to prepared tray and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining tortillas and kale mixture.
  5. Heat remaining oil in pan over medium heat. Sprinkle remaining cumin over pan. Crack eggs into pan. Cook, basting with oil once,
