A take away from the Japanese Breakfast

Typically, in Japan, a breakfast might consist of an egg over rice, vegetables, a broth soup and perhaps some fish.  Warm, wonderful and full of nutrients.  This is a quicker take on that concept.  It just takes minutes to wilt down a few dark greens, fry some mushrooms and poach an egg.  This breakfast is light and yet fills you with a great energy to start your day.  

2 handfuls of dark greens, roughly chopped 
(I used broccoli leaves here)
1 tbsp olive oil
6 sliced baby portobello mushrooms
1 egg
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

1. Started a slow boil to a small pot of water.
2. Spin the low boiling water in a circle with a spoon to get it swirling, before cracking an egg into the water.  Let it boil on low-medium heat for 2-3 minutes.  
3. Sauté the dark greens and mushrooms in olive oil and red pepper flakes over high-medium heat for 2-3 minutes.  
4. Place the dark greens and mushrooms in a bowl.  
5. Scoop out the egg with a slotted spoon, and place on top. 

Tuck into a fantastic breakfast that will start your day right!
