  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 60g crumbled feta cheese, goat or cow milk

Avocado Smash Method

  1. To make the “smash”, place avocado halves in a bowl and fork through to create a rustic mash.
  2. Add lemon juice, crumbled feta, chopped parsley, dill and chopped cherry tomato. Mix well.

Poached Eggs Method

  1. Bring a medium shallow saucepan of water and vinegar to the boil. Break egg into a small dish.
  2. Reduce the heat, to the water, to a simmer. Carefully slide in the egg.
  3. Repeat this process with remaining eggs.
  4. Allow 3 – 4 minutes for poached eggs with firm whites and soft runny yolks. Cook longer for a firmer egg.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon, rest on a paper towel to absorb any excess water.

To Serve
