  • Summary

    Chef Camille Becerra poaches her eggs in a deep pot because they take on a teardrop shape when they plunge into the water. She uses mixes of grains, vegetables, and greens when serving this bowl at Navy, but you can use just one variety of each component. (It's a great way to use leftovers.) She also varies the savory yogurt, swapping out the sumac used here with a mix of mild spices or herbs, such as fresh dill or flat-leaf parsley, ground fennel or coriander seed, or a combination.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
    • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons ground sumac (available at penzeys.com)
    • Pinch of flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
    • 1/4 teaspoon agave syrup
    • White vinegar
    • Coarse salt
    • 4 large eggs
    • 2 cups mixed fresh greens and herbs, such as watercress, flat-leaf parsley, chives, and scallion greens
    • Extra-virgin olive oil
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
    • 2 cups mixed cooked grains, such as farro, quinoa, wheat berries, and red or brown rice
    • 12 pieces mixed roasted vegetables, such as whole carrots, parsnips, turnips, and beets, and sliced butternut or acorn squash
