Savory Oatmeal with Poached Egg and Roasted Almonds - easy breakfast by @healthynibs



Optional Toppings

Poached Eggs


  1. Add oatmeal, 3 cups water, and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. When water boils, bring it to simmer and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until most of the water has been absorbed by the oats. Turn off heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of goat cheese. Divide oatmeal into 4 bowls.
  2. Fill a pot halfway with water and bring it to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. You should still see some bubbles rising to the surface.
  3. Crack an egg into a small bowl or ramekin. Drop egg into simmering water. Repeat with one more egg. Cook eggs for 3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon. Place an egg on top of each bowl of oatmeal. Cook remaining 2 eggs.
  4. Sprinkle each bowl with chopped almonds, black pepper, chives, red pepper, and tomatoes. Serve immediately.

If your eggs aren’t that fresh, you’ll want to cook them one at a time. Using a ladle or spoon, swirl water inside the pot, until you create small whirlpool. Drop egg right in the middle. The swirling water helps wrap the egg white around the yolk.
