Ingredients

  • 2 tomatoes, halved
  • ½ tsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 2 slices seeded wholemeal soda bread (see goes well with)
  • 2 handfuls rocket

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a non-stick frying pan, very lightly brush the cut surface of the tomatoes with a little oil, then cook them, cut-side down, in the pan until they have softened and slightly caramelised. Meanwhile, heat a pan of water, carefully break in the eggs and leave to poach for 1-2 mins until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny.

  • STEP 2

    Halve and stone the avocado, then scoop out the flesh and smash onto the bread. Add the eggs, grind over black pepper and add a handful of rocket to each portion. Serve the tomatoes on the side.
