Recipe: Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Garlic Bread

Everyone knows that eggs are high in cholesterol level; however, it is not entirely bad for the health. In fact, studies show that eggs contain vitamins A, B and D which are beneficial for the heart. To get the most out of it, poaching is the best cooking technique one can use to cook an egg.

Yes, poached eggs are good for the body especially if you want to lose some weight. This is due to the process wherein the eggs are cooked in boiling water. Doing this prevents the fats contained in the egg yolk from being oxidized.

So what exactly is this so-called oxidized or oxidation?

Let’s say you cut an apple and a few seconds or few minutes the apple turns brown. That would be oxidation which is clearly bad for the body especially if we are talking about “oxidized cholesterol”.

Did you know that oxidized cholesterol is one of the factors of developing a heart disease? Since the fats are oxidized, it becomes sticky and when it’s inside the body it can clog the arteries. Indeed, poaching is the best technique.

For a healthier dish, let’s add some more ingredients and let’s cook Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Garlic Bread. Here is how.

You will need:

4 tbsp. tomato sauce
2 medium-sized tomatoes
2 cloves garlic (minced)
Onion (minced)
Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Sugar, Paprika
Pepper flakes
Grated cheese
Vegetable or canola oil
  1. In a pan, pour oil over medium heat and sauté onion, garlic and pepper flakes for one minute. Then add some fresh tomatoes and mix the tomato sauce. Bring to boil and season with salt, pepper, sugar and cumin. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Crack eggs in tomato mixture and cook for 5 minutes. Before removing pan from heat, sprinkle eggs with paprika and top with grated cheese. Let stand for 3 more minutes. For the garlic bread, simply mix butter with garlic powder and spread on toast. Lastly, transfer on serving plate and voila!
