The World's Healthiest Foods Website


I just ran across this website and it has some over 100 really great healthy recipe ideas. It is also PACKED with interesting health information.
I'm going to make this recipe from WHFoods.org tomorrow morning. I have left over Kale and Leeks from another recipe I just made. :) I will let you know how it turns out.

Poached Eggs Over Sauteed Greens
For only 130 calories, this great way of serving eggs in the morning provides an excellent, very good or good source of over 15 nutrients including 719% of the daily value (DV) for vitamin K, 147% DV for vitamin C and 126% DV for vitamin A. Enjoy!

Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes

4 eggs, preferably organic
1 tsp light vinegar (rice, apple cider, or white wine)
about 4 cups water
1 cup thinly sliced leeks, about 1 large leek, white part only
6 medium cloves garlic, sliced
4 cups chopped kale
3 +1 TBS chicken broth
2 TBS fresh lemon juice
salt and black pepper to taste

Slice leeks and garlic and let sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out their health-promoting properties.
Bring water and vinegar to a fast simmer in a skillet large enough to fit eggs. Make sure there is enough water to cover eggs.
While water is coming to a simmer, heat 1 TBS broth in a separate stainless steel 10-12 inch skillet. Healthy Saute sliced leeks in broth over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add garlic slices and continue to saute, stirring constantly for another minute.
Add kale, broth, and lemon juice, and simmer covered on medium low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When done season with salt and pepper.
Poach eggs until desired doneness. This will take about 5 minutes, or just until the white is set and the yolk has filmed over. Remove from vinegar water with a slotted spoon and place on top of greens. Serves 4
Healthy Cooking Tips:

Make sure you do not add any salt to the poaching water for the eggs. The salt has a tendency to dissolve the egg whites. By making sure there is enough water in the poaching pan to cover eggs, you avoid the eggs sticking to the bottom of the pan. You want the eggs to float while they cook. This also avoids breaking the eggs when you remove them with the slotted spoon. You may want to lay the spoon with the egg on a towel briefly after removing egg from water. This allows the towel to absorb some of the poaching water, and it won't dilute the flavor of your greens.
