  • Make wells in the green mass and poach eggs into them. Cook until the eggs are done. You can cover the skillet with a lid for a quicker result. Garnish with chopped parsley and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve with hot sauce of your choice (I used homemade sriracha sauce) and fresh crusty bread (optional). Enjoy!
