Cooking with Fatty Episode 4: Smoked salmon wrapped microgreens with poached egg

Last weekend of October.
Last weekend before Halloween.
A weekend of cooking!

Disclaimer: this post may get a little long- sharing with you guys three tasty meals we had!
Let's start off with a quick snack/appetizer the Fatty and I put together.

QUINOA SALAD with apples and sliced almonds
quinoa salad from Costco ($4.99 per lb/ $7 box)
chopped fuji apple
sliced almonds

Next time maybe I will try making my quinoa, but the Costco one is so delicious and time efficient! It's lightly seasoned with lemon juice, vinegar, sugar and salt, and it has a lot of good stuff in it- quinoa, cucumber, tomatoes, mung beans, red bell peppers, brown rice, kale, cilantro and red lentil! Extra nutritious snack with added apples and almond slices.

Taste: 5 stars out of 5
Balanced flavor- acidic, savory and sweet.
Texture: 5 stars out of 5
The apples and almonds added extra crunch to the salad.

PREMIUM RIB EYE with roasted broccoli

Season steak with black pepper, salt and cayenne. On high heat, seal the juices. Flip. Repeat. Reduce heat to cook to perfect rare-ness! Blanch broccoli quickly for 2 minutes. Drain and toss in black pepper and melted garlic butter. Roast in oven at 400F for 10 minutes. (Microwave leftover cafe spaghetti) Dinner is served!

Taste: 5 stars out of 5
Good quality steak!

Perfect medium rare- tender meat. 

Smoked Salmon wrapped Microgreens with Poached Egg 
(Apple Banana Persimmon Smoothie)

urth cafe inspired
THE BEST breakfast the Fatty and I had made together so far. This dish was inspired from the brunch we had at Urth Cafe last weekend. Our version is million times better, no kidding. Starting off from the base- the bread- brushed with garlic butter and toasted to perfect golden brownness!

Next, poached eggs. Need I say more? Perfect runny yolk. (:

my first attempt at poached eggs- success!
Then wrapped microgreens with smoked salmon to go with that nice egg.

sunday brunch for two

On the side, we blended an apple, a banana, a persimmon with some almond milk and made a super thick and tasty smoothie. Fatty topped his with some granola!

Taste: 6 stars out of 5
Texture: 6 stars out of 5
BEST thing we ever made.

A Sunday brunch well eaten
brings a week of content!
