In my recipe organizing mania I came upon a recipe for a poached egg on toast sprinkled with Parmesan and a basil pistou. This recipe inspired two thoughts.
One being that I love a good poached egg, especially on toast. The second thought was instead making a pistou I thought about vegetables. What about sauteing broccoli instead.
Which is what I did.
Then taking a toasted slice of french bread sprinkled with a little Parmesan, I placed the broccoli and then the poached egg.
This was satisfying and filling. The saltiness of the Parmesan worked well with the egg and the broccoli.
I probably could have sauteed the broccoli a little longer because it was still crunchy. I also could have cut it into smaller pieces so the broccoli wasn't overtaking the whole plate. None of that deterred from my enjoyment of such a simple dinner. Even as I write, I find myself thinking about wanting to make this for lunch.
