Green Goddess

In an effort to add more protein to my diet, I often have perfectly hard-boiled eggs in my fridge – see below for my favorite technique. Eggs are yummy over toast, in a salad, on the go or in this unbelievably delicious green goddess sauce that my kids have fallen in love with. Easy to make it adds a great flavor dimension to any meal. The recipe is from a series of eggy ideas in Women’s Health Magazine.

1/2 cup plain Gree yogurt
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
2 hard-boiled eggs
1/3 cup each packed parsley and basil
Two sliced scallions
1 garlic clove, minced
Juice of 1/3 lime
1/4 tsp each cayenne and salt

In a blender purée all ingredients. Serve immediately.

PS: The best way to make the perfect hard-boiled egg is to bring at least 1 inch of water to a boil in a medium saucepan with a steamer basket inside. Add eggs in a single layer, cover and steam for 15 minutes. Using a spoon or label, transfer eggs to a bowl filled with ice water and let rest 30 minutes. Enjoy!
