How to Poach an Egg

A new way to poach sans water? We are all ears (and tastebuds).  Chef, Dominic Fasano,  shares his secret to extra flavorful eggs.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 jar salsa verde
  • cooked quinoa


  1. In a fry pan, bring salsa verde* to a simmer.
  2. Crack eggs into the salsa and cover with a lid. Cook covered for 4 minutes (for loose yolks) or until desired doneness.
  3. Use a big spoon to remove the eggs. Serve on top of a heaping bowl of warm quinoa.

* Traditionally eggs are poached in water. Substituting salsa gives added flavor.
