Following on from my last post about how to make delicious poached eggs at home (click here to access the post), I thought it would be a good idea to show you an example of how I incorporate my poached eggs to my meals. So today’s example is a bit of an original mix as I had an egg with a buckwheat pancake…
I literally made my breakfast with all the leftovers in my fridge. Because I did not have any bread I thought I would make a large ‘blini’ to go well with the smoked salmon so I made a buckwheat pancake. It is very easy to make.
Method to prepare buckwheat pancakes:
All you need it 50 grams of buckwheat flour, approx. 1/4 cup of milk (any kind of milk you want – I used normal full fat milk but almond milk also works very well for example) and one egg. Mix everything together until you reach a pancake like mixture, grease the pan with a tiny bit of butter or coconut oil and then cook over medium heat until nice and golden. The mixture should make 2-3 rather large pancakes.
I then put my perfectly poached egg (thanks to my secret method) onto the pancake and I added boiled spinach, smoked salmon, ham and a few cherry tomatoes.
Tip: once you’ve finished making your poached egg, turn the temperature down so the water is not boiling anymore and chuck a handful of spinach in for a minute or two. This is a really easy cooking method which gives them a nice soft texture.
Tip number two: enjoy your smoked salmon with a bit of cream cheese on top of the buckwheat pancake – it’s really yummy.
Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!!
