Yummy Veg Dinner

I have been watching a lot of Master Chef lately which has me wanting to poach eggs all the time. So, earlier this week when Toronto saw one of its biggest rain storms in a while, I decided to sauté some veggies and poach an egg on top. The result was a filling and delicious dinner!

1/2 cup zucchini*
4 spears of asparagus*
1 cup kale*
1/2 cup broccoli*
1 egg
1 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of salt and pepper

*these are just approximations, you can cook up however much you want to eat or base quantity on how many people are eating (this recipe was just for me) 

1. Cut your veg (other then the kale) into small bite sized pieces)
2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet on high and add all the veg but the kale mixing occasionally
3. Fill a small saucepan with water and let boil
4. Mix the kale with other veg and add a pinch of salt (turn down skillet if veg is getting too brown)
5. Poach egg (I have yet to master this but approximately 2 mins cracked in the boiling water should be good)
6. When your veg has a nice brown crust on it remove them from the heat and plate. Place the poached egg on top so when you break the yolk it spills all over the veg. Season with a little salt and pepper
