1

Use a saucepan to poach eggs, fill the pan with 1 to 2 inches water, and add the salt and vinegar.

2

Bring the water to a simmer and adjust the heat so that your water will not reach boiling. While waiting, crack an egg into a small bowl.

When the water starts to simmer, swirl the water in a whirlpool motion going in one direction to create a vortex then, gently slide the egg into the center of the moving water. Cover pot and time eggs for about 5 minutes.

If they are done, use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the water.
Repeat process with another egg.

3

Arrange a bedding of arugula, top with the poached eggs and serve with sliced avocados on the side. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Notes & Tips
4

1. Always use fresh eggs every time you make poached eggs, they will give a good output than that of old ones. Old eggs cannot hold together during the poaching process.

2. Cracking the egg in a small bowl will prevent the yolk from breaking and the whites separating.

3. Cooking preferences for your poached eggs
3 Minutes: very runny yolk and slightly undercooked egg white.
4 minutes: soft white and runny yolk
5 minutes: yolk and whites are a bit more set.
6 minutes: yolk and whites are firm and tender and not runny

4.This recipe is best paired with any low carb toast.
