Poached Eggs over Spinach
Start the day with an extra boost of greens in this easy-to-prepare meal that you can also serve for lunch or dinner.
  Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 2 omega-3 enriched eggs
  • 1 tsp light vinegar
  • 1 lb fresh spinach (or kale or collard greens)
  • Mediterranean Dressing
  • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 medium clove garlic
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Spinach

  1. Use a large pot (3 quart) with lots of water. Bring water to rapid boil.
  2. While water is coming to a boil, press or chop garlic and let it sit for at least 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.
  3. Wash spinach.
  4. When water is at full boil, place spinach into the pot. Do not cover. Cooking uncovered helps the acids to escape into the air. Cook spinach for 1 minute; begin timing a soon as you drop the spinach into the boiling water. See 5-Minute Kale or 5-Minute Collard Greens recipes if you use these greens in place of spinach.
  5. After the spinach has cooked for 1 minute (do not wait for water to return to a boil), use a mesh strainer with a handle to remove spinach from the pot. Press out excess liquid.
  6. Toss spinach with dressing ingredients while it is still hot. Mediterranean dressing does not have to be made separately.
Poached Eggs
  1. Bring 1 quart water to a high simmer in a 10-inch skillet with 1 tsp of vinegar.
  2. When water comes to a high simmer poach eggs for about 5 minutes, or until whites are firm. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and place over spinach mixture.
