Stay Healthy Poached Eggs over Vegetables


  • 2 Whole Large Organic Eggs
  • Fresh prepared asparagus
  • Fresh prepared peppers
  • Spices of choice (I used an organic no salt herb blend, crushed chili peppers, black pepper, cumin, and a hint of smoked paprika)
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a large cast iron skillet, or large sauté skillet, place vegetables that have been coated in olive oil into medium hot pan. Allow them to cook to crisp tender and place a small amount of char on the vegetables. Sprinkle spices of your choice all over the vegetables and turn to coat while cooking. Pour ¼ cup water into skillet and cover pan for approximately 5-8 minutes to steam the vegetables slightly. Remove the lid and break 2 eggs over the vegetables, replace the lid, and allow the eggs to poach to soft yolk cook with a nice white skin over the yolk. Remove the lid and sprinkle the egg with black pepper or spice of choice. With a large spatula, place underneath the vegetables and one egg and carefully remove to a plate, repeat with the other egg. Dinner is served!
