Poached eggs florentine

by Charlotte Watts

Serves 2

2 large free-range egg
250 g spinach
2 slices seeded wholegrain or rye bread
Paprika, mustard or mayonnaise to serve


  1. Boil half a pan full of water, crack the eggs into the boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes on a medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile wilt the spinach in a steamer or saucepan on a low heat. Just heat enough for the leaves to shrink and become watery, but not too much that they brown in any way – about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Toast the bread and butter and cut in half, arrange on a plate and put the spinach on top.
  4. Drain the eggs from the water and serve on top of the spinach.
  5. Serve with a little paprika, mayonnaise or mustard. You can even mix wholegrain mustard into some mayonnaise for a quick dressing.
