6. Make poached eggs
-Fill a small/medium size pot with about 2 cups of water and 1 tbsp vinegar
-Crack eggs individually into a ramekin
-Once water is boiling, stir water with spatula until water is spinning slightly in a circular motion
-Slowly pour egg into the spinning water; use spatula to slightly move it together if you need to
-Let cook for about 3-4 minutes until egg white is opaque; spoon out with slotted spoon and set aside
7. When veggies are done, transfer to serving plate and serve with eggs and sauce!
2 large (preferably organic) eggs
a tiny pinch of fine grain sea salt
a few tablespoons of chopped chives
a dollop of home made pesto
a bit of goat cheese or feta
a small handful of mixed salad greens
Use a fork to beat the eggs and salt in a small bowl. Beat well.
In your largest pan over medium heat pour the egg mixture and give it a good swirl so that they spread out thinly across the entire pan. Alternately, you can use a crepe pan or crepe maker – this works beautifully as well. Sprinkle the eggs with some of the chives and let them set, this happens quickly depending on the heat of your pan – 15 seconds to one minute. Run a spatula underneath the omelette and slide it out of the pan (flat) onto a countertop or large cutting board. Spread the pesto across the surface of the omelette (if you have a thick pesto, thin it a bit with water to make it easily spreadable), and then sprinkle with the cheese and salad greens. Starting with one end, roll the omelette away from you. Cut in half on a deep diagonal. Season with a bit more salt if needed and serve garnished with a few chopped chives.
Serves one or two.
