Move over, avocado toast (actually just like… step aside for two seconds, but don’t go too far) a new green toast is in town! This Pesto Edamame Toast is what breakfast dreams are made of.
Ok guys, there is so much that I love about this post that I can’t even wait to begin. You may be thinking “well, Sarah, this looks like a pretty simple toast recipe to me,” and like… yeah, you’re right. But that’s part of the beauty of it!
You may also be thinking either a.) “I’ve already perfected poached eggs, hacks are for losers,” in which case I commend you, but also – eff off for a second, ‘kay? or b.) “POACHING EGGS IS THE WORST AND NO ONE CAN HELP ME,” in which case, stick around!
Let’s start by talking about this edamame thang for a minute. I know: nothing can replace avocado toast and I should stop trying! But I’m here to tell you that Pesto Edamame Toast isn’t here to replace anything. It’s a different beast entirely. Which means you don’t have to choose, guys – you can keep them both!
The super simple combination of edamame, pesto and feta cheese is a huge winner. Tbh, pesto and feta are good in most scenarios, but the edamame takes it to another level of yum. I generally eat edamame plain, steamed with a little sea salt, so it would make sense that it plays well with two salty-but-more-complex flavors.
A half cup of edamame also has 8.5 grams of protein, and I’m all about plant-based, protein-packed foods. Cutting back meat intake to just a couple of times a week isn’t hard at all when you’ve got meals like this to fill the void!
All right. Now. It’s time to talk about the egg situation.
I am here before you with the *easiest way to poach eggs in the world.* Now, there are many miles of this world I haven’t traveled, but yet I feel pretty damn comfortable with this proclamation because I seriously cannot imagine it getting easier. You ready for this jelly?
The Easiest Way to Poach an Egg In the World
- Crack an egg into a microwaveable bowl.
- Add a splash of vinegar.
- Microwave on high for 60 seconds, covered with a small plate.
- If you would like your egg more done, microwave at 20-second intervals until you achieve desired doneness.
THAT’S IT. THE END.
“Microwaved eggs? Surely that can’t be good.”
My friend, I understand where you’re coming from, but I’m here to tell you, you are WRONG. This method produces poached eggs that are 100% identical to eggs poached traditionally. It’s 100x easier. You don’t have to worry about breaking that beautiful yolk fishing it out of a large pot. It takes ONE. MINUTE.
If I haven’t convinced you by now I probably never will, but just for good measure, have a look at this yolk porn:
- ½ cup edamame, shelled and heated
- 1 tbsp pesto
- 1 tbsp feta cheese
- 1 piece of toast
- Combine edamame, pesto, and feta cheese.
- Put it on some toast.
- Top with a perfectly poached egg.
