Hard Boiled Eggs with Raw Vegetables
- 6 to 12 large eggs, straight from the fridge
Add the eggs to a saucepan and cover with water: Fill a saucepan about a quarter of the way with cold water. Place the eggs in a single layer at the bottom of the saucepan. Add more water so that the eggs are covered by at least an inch or two of water. The more eggs that are crowding the pan the more water you should have over the eggs. 6 eggs should be covered by at least an inch, 7 to 12 eggs, 2 inches.
1. Bring to a rolling boil: Leave the pan uncovered. Turn the heat to high and bring the water to a rolling boil.
2. Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit: Depending on how cooked you like your hard boiled eggs, the eggs should be done perfectly after sitting for 10-12 minutes.
3. Strain and run under cold water. Let them sit for a few minutes, or until cooled.
4. Peel or store for later. Peeled eggs should be eaten within a day or two.
Serve with a raw vegetables.
