Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

The secret to a soft-boiled egg is less tricky than you think. There is something about a warm, runny yolk that makes it taste that much better! It really comes down to the timing and how long you cook it for. An extra minute or two and it becomes a hard-boiled egg. 

I recommend you to set a timer rather than looking at a clock while boiling your eggs. Many times, I've forgotten about it - turning them into very set yolks. Using a timer leads to a more accurate outcome. 

1. Bring water to a rolling boil (just enough water to cover the eggs).
2. Reduce to a simmer (about medium heat).
3. Gently add in eggs one at a time - making sure you don't crack them.
4. Cook uncovered for 6 minutes to have the eggs look like the picture above. For a more runny yolk, cook for 5 minutes. For a more set-yolk (but still a bit runny), cook for 7 minutes. 
5. Rinse with cool water. Let it sit for a few minutes before peeling. 

It's best when still warm. Soft-boiled eggs should be peeled more carefully since the yolk isn't completely set. 

Serve it by itself or on top of your avocado toast! Mash some avocado on top of english muffins, peel your soft-boiled egg & sprinkle some almond ricotta cheese on top for a great breakfast - packed with complex carbs, high quality protein and healthy fats!
