Eggs are having a moment as a trendy food and for good reason! They are packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fat. Plus, who hasn’t had breakfast for dinner and loved it? 

Ingredients

  • 10  asparagus stems
  • green onion
  • 1  Tablespoon  oil
  • 10  cherry tomatos
  • organic egg
  • 1/2  packet of ALOHA Daily Good Greens
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 2  Cups  spinach

Directions

Heat a frying pan on medium heat.

Chop the asparagus into one-inch segments and mince the onion. Add 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the heated frying pan, then add the asparagus and onion.

While that is cooking, slice your tomatoes in halves and set aside. Sauté the asparagus and onion for ten minutes, or until the edges start to brown—once they are done, remove them from the pan and set aside.

In the same pan, add the other 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Bring the heat up a bit, halfway in between medium and full. Crack the egg with care and drop it in the oil. While that is cooking, plate the spinach and tomatoes. Coat the sautéed veggies in the ALOHA Daily Good and salt—add them on top of the raw veggies. When the edges of the egg start to brown, it's time to take it off the heat. Carefully remove it from the pan and place it on top of your salad. Sprinkle additional salt on the egg if desired. Enjoy!

Egg Salad Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Salad Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
