Jillian Michaels: Healthy eggs benedict
Cooking spray light
3 clove(s) garlic minced
10 ounce(s) spinach, packaged and prewashed organic, washed again
Salt to taste
3 ounce(s) vinegar, white
4 large egg(s)
2 large tomatoes organic, sliced
4 English muffin, 100% whole-wheat toasted
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1. Coat a medium sauté pan with cooking spray and heat on medium. Heat garlic until slightly tender, add the spinach, and cook until soft, adding a pinch of salt if desired.
2. Bring 2 quarts of water and vinegar to a slow boil in a medium saucepan. Crack open an egg in a small bowl or cup to ensure that there aren’t any pieces of shell in the yolk or white. With a wooden spoon, quickly stir the liquid in the pot to create a spiral, or “tornado,” gently pour the egg into the center of the tornado, and stop stirring. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon when it looks like it has cooked through. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs.
3. Place tomato slices on toasted muffin halves, followed by the desired amount of spinach, and top with egg and black pepper to taste. Serve.
