A Chocolate Breakfast You Definitely Haven't Tried Before
You'd expect master pastry chef Jacques Torres, who's known as Mr. Chocolate
, to eat the stuff for breakfast, but not like this. First, he fills a coffee mug with very cold water, gently cracks an egg into it and microwaves it for a minute. (He likes his poached egg runny, but you can cook the egg longer if you prefer yours more solid.) Next, he microwaves a handful of fresh spinach in a bowl covered with a plate until it's wilted. Last, Torres lifts the poached egg out of the water with a slotted spoon, lays it over the spinach and—ahem—sprinkles cocoa nibs and a little salt on top.
