  • 1/2 cup cooked seasoned rice $0.11
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach $0.16
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter $0.08
  • 1 large egg $0.21
  • pinch of salt and pepper $0.03
  • splash of hot sauce $0.05


  • Place one inch of water in a small sauce pan. Bring it up to a boil over high heat with the lid on top. Once it reaches a full boil, add the egg in the pot, replace the lid, and let boil/steam in the shallow water for exactly six minutes. After six minutes, pour out the hot water, rinse with cool water, then peel immediately.
  • While the egg is cooking, add 1/2 cup of precooked seasoned rice to a bowl along with 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach. Microwave on high until heated through (about two minutes, stirring once half way through). Season the spinach and rice with butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Once the egg is cooked and peeled, add it to the bowl with the spinach rice, drizzle hot sauce over top, and eat.


Coconut oil makes a delicious substitution for butter. Experiment with adding extra herbs for more flavor.
