One of the foods we’re incorporating more regularly into our days is eggs. We find ourselves trying to add one or two some time during the day because they’re such a valuable source of healthy nutrition. Egg white are protein, and the yolks contain vitamin A, B12 and can be a source of omega-3s (if they’re fortified).
Of course, aside from all that, eggs are just tasty, too. Especially hard boiled eggs that are dressed up with salty soy sauce, spicy sriracha, and heavy shot of one of current obsessions, nori komi furikake.
Kind of like umami.
How do you eat your hard boiled eggs?
Umami Hard Boiled Eggs
hard boiled eggs (see “how to” below)
sriracha hot sauce
nori komi furikake
Slice hard boiled eggs in half, length-wise.
Carefully add a few drops of soy sauce to each yolk, making sure the soy sauce doesn’t spill over, instead soaks into the yolk. Add a dollop of sriracha to each half, then sprinkle with nori komi furikake.
How to Hard Boil Eggs
Everyone hard boils eggs in different ways, but we find that this is the easiest, and actually the most fool-proof, way to make hard boiled eggs.
Place eggs in a single layer on the bottom of a heavy pot with a lid. Cover the eggs with water, enough that there’s about 2 inches of water above the eggs.
Bring the water to a boil on the stovetop. Turn off the heat, cover the pot, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, drain the water, rinse the eggs (to cool), and peel.
