    Roasted courgettes & poached eggs on toast

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 2


    500g courgettes, trimmed and cut into 2cm cubes
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    6 basil leaves, shredded
    2 British Blacktail Medium Free Range Eggs
    2 slices Waitrose 1 Wheat & Rye Sourdough Bread
    Sriracha chilli sauce, to serve (optional) 


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Toss the courgettes with the garlic and oil. Season and spread out on a large parchment-lined baking tray. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway. Once golden, sprinkle with the lemon juice and crush very lightly with the back of a fork. Stir through the basil.

    2. To poach the eggs, fill a large saucepan with boiling water and set over a low heat (it should be steaming, but not bubbling). Crack in the eggs and leave for 3-4 minutes until the whites are set. Lift out with a slotted spoon and pat dry on kitchen paper.

    3. Toast the sourdough and pile up with the courgette. Sit a poached egg on top, grind over a little black pepper and sea salt flakes and finish with a little chilli sauce, if liked.
