Go ahead, try to think of one food that isn’t better with an egg in or on it. I’ll often add a beautifully fried or poached egg to a dish not only because that glistening, golden yolk makes the dish very Instagrammable, but also for a deeper, nutrition-based reason. Eggs can boost the protein of an all-plant dish and provide healthy fat to deliver fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K to our systems. And let’s not forget that they add a soft, velvety texture and taste to make a healthy (but otherwise boring) dish that much more enjoyable.
Here are nine dishes, courtesy of @thedelicious, that are pretty good on their own, but even better with the addition of an egg or two.
