Brothy Poached Eggs 

Brothy Poached Eggs 

Time for Warm and Nourishing Breakfast

This recipe it adapted from Angela C. Wu’s wonderful book Fertility Wisdom.  I love this recipe all year round, it is especially a favourite here through the cooler months.

This recipe is perfect for those post-period/ postpartum days {when all bleeding has ceased}, a time when we all need extra love and nourishment.  As Angela says “energetically, it’s a recipe for vitality when the body’s Qi has been depleted by menstruation or childbirth.”

For each serve of Brothy Poached Eggs you will need:

  • 1 – 2 C home made chicken/ vegetable stock ✽ or filtered water
  • 3 slices of fresh ginger root
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 T rice wine
  • 2 free range eggs

Place all ingredients except eggs into a saucepan and bring to boil and then reduce to a rolling simmer for a few minutes.  Add your eggs and extra water to cover if necessary. Continue simmering and cook the eggs to just right. Serve eggs and broth in a deep bowl.

Eat slowly, all the while breathing in the aromatic broth and feeling the warmth of this breakfast set you up for a superb day.

✽  When making your stock {or when a stout-hearted friend makes it for you} try augmenting your stock with classic Blood Nourishing Chinese medicine herbs. These include: Dong Quai, Wolf berries and Chinese dates {ask your favourite accupunturist for a handful of these magnificent herbs}.  When added to your preferred stock,  our vegetarian friends can benefit from this beautiful, profoundly nourishing breakfast.

I’ll be posting soon with my chicken stock recipe…

My dear friends Charmaine and Milly loved this recipe so much, they included it in their magnificent EBook The Breakfast ProjectLooking for breakfast inspiration, your search is now over.
