Let the Yolks Run Deep: Eggs For Dinner

Recipes

By: Candice Kumai

One of the cheapest and easiest ingredients to cook with that’s still full of high-quality protein and nutrients? Oh, and BTW it only cost .15 cents a pop? Well, I’m talking eggs here. Eggs are naturally high in lean protein, a great source of B Vitamins and other nutrients such as thiamin, iron, riboflavin and phosphorus.

Poached Eggs over Asparagus and Whole Wheat Garlic Crostini

1- Start by making your crostinis by thinly slicing (on the bias) a whole wheat loaf bread, sourdough, French bread, brioche, whatever you have laying around will do. Place on a sheet tray, drizzle with olive oil, rub with a few sliced garlic cloves and top with a high-quality sea salt.

2- Place the crostinis in a 350 degree oven to bake for approx 10 minutes.

3- Toast a few pepitas, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or sliced almonds, set aside.

4- Trim and cook off your fresh asparagus. Remember, to get that bright green color and light crunch to the tooth, just blanch the asparagus in simmering water for a few minutes and shock in an ice bath to stop the cooking process and to really get a nice bite to the asparagus… too many people destroy asparagus by overcooking.

5- Set aside your crostinis and asparagus, and begin to poach your eggs. One at a time. Lightly simmer a pot of water, add in 1-2 T of distilled white vinegar, swirl and lightly drop in an egg. Watch as it coagulates before your very eyes!

6- Set up your plate with the crostini, top with the asparagus spears, lightly salt the asparagus, add olive oil and a touch of balsamic if desired. Remove poached egg  from water with a slotted spoon. Place on top of the delightful asparagus spears. Sprinkle egg with the toasted seeds/pepitas add some sea salt, maybe some truffle salt, smoked paprika or black pepper if desired.

And of course, Bon Appetit! Get your eggs on sister, they are definitely a food with benefit and they will keep you skinny, rich and fabulous forever!
