Weekend cooking. Try to be creative and have leftovers red cabbage, kale and bacon. Trying my Christmas pressie truffle oil from my sister. Using my last Dijon mustard so I can have space in my pantry.
This is my first time trying poached eggs in this method. Its looks great and success. You can use any method of poaching eggs. I am glad to make myself a healthy brunch with the ingredients I have.
It’s healthy simple brunch and creative make my stomach satisfied with a small portion. Enjoy!!!!!
1 stalk spring onion, chopped finely for garnish
500 g kale, ribs removed, coarsely chopped
1/2 red cabbage, shredded finely (Approx. 200 g)
200 g shredded bacon
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 Tsp crushed black pepper
1/8 Tsp salt
2 Tsp Dijon mustard or your choice
1 Tbsp olive oil plus 3 Tbs truffle blanched oil (OPT)
2 Tsp white vinegar
1 Tsp salt
Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add kale and cook, tossing with two large spoons, until bright green, about 1 minute. Add cabbage and water, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally until kale and cabbage is tender, 15 to 18 minutes.
Push kale and cabbage to one side, add the truffle oil to the empty side and cook bacon, garlic and crushed black pepper in it until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Stir in vinegar and mustard to taste with salt. Set aside and keep warm.
Bring a saucepan approximately 8cm deep water; add vinegar and salt on high until it reaches a bare simmer and bubbles start appearing at the bottom of the pan, just a few bubbles coming up now and then.
I use food stacker rings, wrap triple layer of cling wrap on to the base of the rings. Place the ring inside the hot water with a tong to hold down and gently crack the egg in. Add all of the eggs you are poaching to the pan in the same way.
Turn off the heat and cover the pan. Set a timer for 4 minutes. At this point the egg whites should be completely cooked, while the egg yolks are still runny. Serve the garnish poached eggs with stir fry vegetables.
Note: the timing depends on the size of the eggs, and if you are cooking at altitude, so adjust accordingly. You can omit truffle oil just use olive oil. You any mustard you like.
