These little babies are so easy to whip up, and if you nail the poaching of the egg they look pretty impressive too! I’m not going to lie – I did watch Jamie Oliver’s YouTube video on how to poach the perfect egg before perfecting the art of the poached egg myself. But it’s actually so much simpler than it appears, so give it a crack (not apologizing for that pun).
Also, please get creative with the ingredients! Add more greens maybe, like some chopped spinach or kale. Once again, I just used what I had in the fridge. You guys will get to see pretty soon that I usually go by my feelings (and what’s expiring soonest) when cooking, and not a recipe!
Side note – I didn’t do it this time, but cooking the quinoa in stock is a lovely way to add extra depth of flavour.
