Sous Vide Egg Bites
These Sous Vide Egg Bites are perfect for portion control, and they look adorable too!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
12 eggs, 1 c unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt (regular salt works too), 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (extra for sprinkling on veggies), Turmeric, Olive oil, 1/3 c sweet onion diced small, 1/2 c bell pepper (I used orange), 1 c spinach chopped, Bacon bits (optional), *Goat cheese (optional)**
1) Set your Sous Vide Cooker to 170ºF 2) In a blender or a bowl (using an electric hand mixer), crack eggs, add almond milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper and blend until smooth. 3) In pan drizzle a little olive oil and heat on medium. When oil is hot add onions and cook for 1-2 minutes, add bell pepper stir and cook another 2 minutes, then add spinach, a sprinkle of salt, a dash of pepper, and turmeric, cook another 1-2 minutes. Do not burn or brown veggies, you just want to soften them. Turn off heat and move veggies off the burner, set aside to cool.
4) Place your jars on a flat surface, drizzle a little olive oil in each jar, with your fingers rub oil all over inside of the jar. *If you are using bacon bits, add about 1/2-1 tbsp now. 5) Divide the veggie mix between the 10 jars. **If you are using goat cheese add about 1 tsp on top of veggies. 6) Divide the egg mixture between the 10 jars and pour on top. Using a butter knife gentle stir ingredients in the jar.
7) Attach two-part lids and close to fingertip tightness. If you attach lids too tight the air pressure in the jars cannot escape and this can cause the jars to shatter in the bath. Use a dry eraser marker to label the lids if making different Sous Vide egg bites. 8) Once all jar lids are on, submerge the jars using tongs, in the water bath and set your timer for 1 hour. You may stack the jars on top of each other. 9) Once the hour is up, remove the jars from the bath using tongs (be careful the water and jars are hot). Let jars cool 5-10 mins before opening. You can eat straight from the jar or you can also slide a butter knife around the inside of jar then turn jar over onto a plate.
Tip: To reheat egg bites, remove lid and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
