Ingredients

  • ¼ of a 250g chorizo sausage ring, thinly sliced
  • 200g chard , sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 125g quick-cook polenta
  • 30g parmesan , grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ small bunch parsley , finely chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the chorizo. Cook for 5 mins or until starting to crisp. Stir through the chard and leave to wilt for 5-8 mins, then remove from the heat and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Bring a pan of water to the boil, reduce to a simmer, then quickly stir the water with a wooden spoon to create a whirlpool. Once the whirlpool has almost completely subsided, crack an egg into the centre of it. Gently simmer for 3 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon. Set aside on a plate while you poach the remaining egg.

  • STEP 3

    Cook the polenta following pack instructions, then mix in the parmesan, oil, parsley and some seasoning. Spoon the polenta onto plates and top with the chorizo, chard and a poached egg.
