Poached Eggs, Mushrooms, and Micro Greens

    Share

    This dish works for either dinner or brunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Look for rye bread with rye flour or rye meal as the first ingredients instead of wheat flour, a euphemism for white refined flour.

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) unsalted butter
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) oil, such as grapeseed
    1/2 lb (225 g) button mushrooms, sliced (about 3 cups)
    4 large free-range eggs
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) white vinegar
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) grainy mustard
    4 slices rye bread, lightly toasted
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Hot sauce, optional
    1 cup (250 mL) micro greens

    Heat butter and oil over medium heat in skillet. As soon as butter foam subsides add mushrooms and cook 6 minutes, or until softened and light brown. Remove pan from heat and set aside.

    To poach eggs, fill lidded large skillet with water and bring to a boil. Break eggs into separate teacups or small bowls. Add vinegar to boiling water. Gently tip eggs into pan, and immediately turn off heat and cover tightly. Let sit for 4 minutes. Using slotted spoon or spatula, carefully remove poached eggs from water and set on clean dish towel to drain.

    Spread an even amount of mustard on toasted rye slices. Top with mushrooms and poached eggs. Season eggs with salt and pepper, and a few squirts of hot sauce if desired. Garnish with micro greens.

    Serves 4.

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
