Easy and quick spinach poached eggs made with tomato are perfect for breakfast.
If you are looking for a quick and healthy breakfast ideas you came to the right place. I will definitely share more healthy recipes. Actually, I’m really focused on healthy eating lately. Many healthy and interesting recipes will show up here on Ilona’s Passion.
I’ve made these eggs when I was on diet. They were satisfying and full of vegetables like spinach, tomato and parsley. Perfect start of the day. I skipped bread and that’s why I decided to make 2 eggs instead of a one. It was perfect breakfast for me and I still make it for myself.
I like all kinds of eggs.. poached, scrambled, hard-boiled etc. They add lots of protein to the diet. I’m also a spinach fanatic .. therefore eggs + spinach = great combination. Tomato is perfect with eggs too.
I remember when my grandma used to make scrambled eggs with tomato. It was very good and I make it sometimes. I usually peel my tomato before cooking with eggs. I don’t really like cooked tomato with hard skin on it. If it’s raw it’s fine for me but cooked tomato skin is not really tasty for me. If you need a great tip to peel tomato skin easily I’ll tell you, just pour some boiling water on the tomato, leave for couple seconds and peel it with knife. How easy and convenient. Very useful trick in the kitchen that you can try in your kitchen:)
