Poached eggs with tomato Easy Food

Serves 2

tsp vinegar
tbsp olive oil
2 tomatoes, sliced
Salt and black pepper
220g mushrooms, sliced
½ tsp dried thyme
large eggs
2 slices wholemeal bread, toasted
20g Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), grated
tbsp fresh chives, chopped

  1. Fill a pan with about 5cm of water. Add the vinegar and bring to a bare simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, heat half a tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until just tender. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, thyme and some salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-7 minutes until golden brown and soft.
  4. Meanwhile, crack the eggs into separate ramekins or saucers. One at a time, slide each gently into the simmering water. Cook for 2-3 minutes for slightly runny yolks and remove with a slotted spoon.
  5. Top each slice of wholemeal toast with sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, two eggs, a sprinkle of Parmesan and some salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
