No-vinegar poached egg on a nutrient-packed arugula salad. Velvety runny yolk engulfed by soft, silky smooth whites. It’s so satisfying! Easy to make and ready in 10 minutes.
  • 1 extra large egg
  • Handful of salad greens and arugula
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • Grounded almonds
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Poach an egg
  1. Crack an egg into a small individual bowl
  2. Boil water in a small saucepan, then turn heat to low, wait until there is no heat bubbles
  3. Stir the water in a circular motion with a spoon
  4. Gently slide the egg into the whirlpool of water with egg white entering first
  5. Cook for about 3 minutes
  6. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon to drain the water
  1. Add salad greens and arugula on a plate and top it with the poached egg
  2. Sprinkled with grounded almonds, vinaigrette, and salt and pepper to taste
Crack the egg carefully – if the egg yolk breaks (in the bowl or in the saucepan), it’s a goner.

Have enough water in the saucepan to cover the egg so the egg doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan.

Water must be at the right low temperature with no heat bubbles when you put in the egg.

Adjust cooking time between 2 – 4 minutes depending on your preference of how runny you like the yolk to be.

If you make more than 1 egg at a time in the saucepan, be careful not to let them stick to one another.
