I have been wanting egg poaching pods for quite a while. I have not tried poaching an egg before in the traditional method, but my husband has, not getting the results we wanted. Poached eggs should have the nice firm whites with runny yolks. When we were on the cleanse, he made a poached egg hash, that turned out more like a hard yolk egg on sweet potato hash.
I bought some poaching pods this past weekend and tried them out this morning. They worked PERFECTLY. Firm white with a yolk that ran off into my hash. It was wonderful!
Here are what the pods look like. They have a tag when you purchase them with directions on how to poach eggs and make other things like Flan. SUPER easy.
My recipe for the hash is as follows.
Sweet Potato Veggie Hash with Poached Egg
-makes 2 servings
2 large eggs (poached according to pod directions-needs 4 minutes to cook so it is a good idea to start 1/2 way through the cooking time of the veggies)
1/3 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
4 stalks asparagus, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 C fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 small zucchini, diced
1 small onion, diced
Place 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Once melted, add sweet potatoes. Cook over medium heat until slightly browned, stirring often. Add asparagus after about 3 minutes. Cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Add in onion and zucchini. Cook until onion is opaque and soft. Add in spinach and stir/cook until wilted. Place on plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste (you won't need much at all) Top with poached egg.
