Ingredients

  • ½ ripe medium avocado
  • 4 cooked baby beetroot, quartered
  • Handful of baby leaf spinach
  • Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
  • Small handful of blanched and toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 4 very fresh large free-range eggs (see Know-how)

Method

  1. Peel, stone and slice the avocado, then gently toss in a bowl with the beetroot, spinach, olive oil, hazelnuts and lemon juice. Season and set aside.
  2. To poach the eggs, heat a large pan of salted water until it just bubbles gently. Crack an egg into a ramekin, then slide the egg into the water, lowering the ramekin as close to the water as possible. Using a dessert spoon, gently fold any stray strands of white around the yolk. Repeat with the other eggs. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon and put on kitchen paper to dry.
  3. Divide the avocado mixture among 4 plates, then serve the eggs on top, sprinkled with salt and pepper.

  1. When poaching eggs, the fresher, the better (ideally less than 4 days old). A fresh egg white clings more closely to the yolk in the simmering water.
