    Recipe Tips

    To make a soft-cooked egg in the microwave, place an egg in a microwave-safe bowl filled with hot water. Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe lid and microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes. Peel the egg and serve.

    For a hard-cooked egg, leave the egg immersed in hot water for an additional 2 minutes before peeling.

    Feel free to swap in mild hummus, or any flavored hummus you prefer, for the spicy hummus called for in the recipe.
