RECIPE: Ricotta hash, with Poached Egg and Smoked Salmon from EFF + my Summer menu experience


A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to enjoy a 3 day educational cleanse from the lovely people at Eat Fit Food. It was pretty amazing to say the least! As I've mentioned before I am a big fan of Eat fit food; its REAL FOOD, portioned controlled to feed your body with goodness. It simply and deliciously makes life easier! 
They are now serving their Summer menu and it is out of this world! Think brown rice porridge, Prawn Linguini, Grilled Salmon, quinoa salads, the works! I have attached a couple of pics at the bottom for you to salivate over. Now here's a yummy brekky recipe for you.

Eat Fit Food’s Ricotta hash, with Poached Egg and Smoked Salmon 
4 portions

What you will need….
•4 eggs (for poaching)
•2 tbsp vinegar
•8 slices of smoked salmon
•12 asparagus spears – lightly blanched in some boiling water
Ricotta hash –
•4 eggs (separated)
•200g ricotta
•120g wholemeal flour
•50 ml of rice  milk
•Pinch salt
•Pinch baking powder
•A handful of fresh dill – a few extra sprigs for garnish
Method….
Ricotta hash
1.Pre heat oven to 160 degrees
2.Separate egg yolks and whites
3.Mix egg yolks, ricotta, flour, milk, salt, baking powder, and finely chopped dill in a large mixing bowl
4.Whisks egg whites in a separate bowl until light and fluffy – make sure bowl is dry and clean!
5.Add ¼ of the egg whites to the ricotta mixture
6.Spoon 2 tbsp of mixture onto a medium heat non-stick fry pan with a little olive oil. Cook both sides until golden
7.Remove from heat, place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 6 minutes
Poached egg
1.Bring 10cm of water in a saucepan to almost boil. Add vinegar (this helps the egg whites to congeal easier)
2.Crack one egg at a time into a small cup, and then gently drop the egg into the water. With a spoon, nudge the egg whitescloser to their yolks
3.Cook for approximately 2 minutes or until the egg whites are cooked
4.Gently lift eggs out of pan with a slotted spoon onto some baking paper to remove excess water
Plating up
1.Place ricotta hash onto plate, stack asparagus, smoked salmon and poached egg on top, then garnish with a little dill.
TIP – always use fresh eggs, not only are they higher in nutrition and flavour, they also hold together better when poaching.  
 ENJOY! X
