poached micro greens

This recipe could be used for any meal, lunch, brunch or even dinner. I had it for dinner last night 😉 . I still have yet to master how to poach the perfect egg with a soft creamy yolk….but practice makes perfect! I left my eggs in about 1 min too long, so be careful. I don’t eat eggs that much anymore, but sometimes I just have a craving to make something “brunchy” for dinner. 🙂 I hope you can find micro greens because they are the bomb! So nutritionally dense and tasty,I found mine at Trader Joe’s.  This dish is sure to impress whoever you make it for, I promise. Just be careful not to over cook the eggs!!
