It was a few weeks ago when I decided to start eating eggs again, since then this is a recipe I have now added to our life. It’s fast, easy, and low maintenance. I only like eggs when they are made a certain way and for some reason I just craved to eat an egg with spinach, so then the making of this recipe happened. Enjoy!
Start by chopping up an onion. This can be done any way you like, I leave my in rings because I think they are easier to eat that way.
Chop up your mushrooms. For this recipe I used a portobello and I left it whole, this is the fist time I’ve actually done that, and I honestly would not do it that way again. I usually cut button mushrooms in halves, you can use whatever kind of mushroom you like in whatever way you like.
Add onion and mushroom to skillet with some water. I say “some” water because you really just need to have a layer of whatever covering the bottom of your pan, and not every pan is the same size, eyeball this.
Add some butter. I use Earth Balance Vegan butter, add about 2tbsp, this is to give the mushrooms an amazing flavor.
Let simmer. Put on low, uncovered, and wait for the water to be almost completely evaporated.
Add a big handful of spinach, and cherry tomatoes if you like. I layer this over the top of my onions and mushrooms, and the rest of the steam coming off of the pan from the water will break down the spinach. Cherry tomatoes are optional.

Next time you go to the grocery store, compare the looks of wild caught salmon to farm raised, it will disgust you.
Start your salmon. I season one side with lemon pepper, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of garlic pepper. I cook it lightly in butter on the unseasoned side for about a minute, then flip it and let it either brown or blacken on the other side. I cook this on High.
*Left picture shows unseasoned side of salmon lightly cooked, right picture shows the raw salmon seasoned well.
I use ONLY wild caught salmon, want to know why farm raised salmon has a light shade of pink in it? Because the food they feed them has dye in it that turns their meat pink- gross! I don’t want to eat that.
Make your egg. Once the spinach is broken down you can plate it, then cook your egg in that same pan. By the time the egg is done and plated, your salmon should be done. YUM!
