This dish for grilled zucchini and a poached egg with truffle salt shows that breakfast doesn't have to be difficult to make.
As a food lover, I was craving something light, fresh, simple, and earthy for breakfast, something that I would call a good breakfast. That’s when I decided to make a poached egg with truffle salt grilled zucchini. Truffle is one of my favorite ingredients as it has the superpower of enhancing any dish. In this case, it ties the farmer’s market fresh flavors together beautifully. If you have never used truffle salt (or truffle oil) before, it’s always best to be cautious as it doesn't take much to add a significant dose of truffle essence to a dish.
It's better to add a small amount at first and then add more to avoid overdoing it. This fresh and simple breakfast is an excellent way to start your day without feeling bloated. It’s perfect for a day at the beach or for those who want to keep their breakfast light and healthy. As a California girl through and through, I love starting my day with this delicious and satisfying meal.
