Mediterranean Vegetables & Poached Egg for Breakfast

I feel like I haven't been cooking anything interesting in a while. Yesterday I needed a big breakfast and to use some of the random things I had in my refrigerator. Thus, Mediterranean Vegetables & Poached Egg for Breakfast was born.

Ingredients
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small potato, peeled, cubed
1 zucchini, cubed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons chopped roasted red pepper
2 teaspoons capers
5 kalamata olives, pitted, halved
chopped fresh parsley
1 poached egg

Directions
1. Cook potatoes for a few min. Add zucchini and paprika. Cook till the vegetables are tender and browned.


2. Add roasted peppers, capers and olives. Heat through. Add parsley.

3. Pile the vegetable medley on a plate and top with a poached egg.



Once you break the egg, you can dip some of the vegetables in it: delicious!



No need to add salt to this dish because you get enough saltiness from the olives and capers.



Do you like my stacked plate look!? It seems rather popular now ;)

Yes! I love this breakfast. Well, actually I think I love anything with an egg on top.

Capers are a genius addition.
