Those of you across the pond may be horrified to learn this, but soft-boiled eggs aren’t really a thing in the average American household. I’d heard of them, and I’d seen egg cups in films, but it just wasn’t something we ever did. Hard-boiled eggs, now, those were everywhere. Salads. Potato salads. Pasta salads. School lunches. Quick breakfasts. Anyway, I thought it was well past time I finally tried this English staple. These Soft-Boiled Eggs come together quickly and painlessly, and for those of you that don’t have egg cups (like me!), you can stand them up in a bowl of rice (or cauliflower rice) and have something to soak up any runaway yolk as an added bonus!
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
- Bring the water to a boil over high heat in a lidded saucepan or stock pot.
- Add the eggs, cover the pot, and remove from the heat. Let sit for 4-7 minutes depending on how soft you want the yolks: 4-minute eggs still have a raw yolk while 7-minute eggs will have a slightly-set yolk.
- Drain when desired, then serve.
