Smashed Eggs and Wilted Greens on Toast

Boil eggs in bulk ahead of time and store (with shells left on) in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you want to make this at work, microwave greens in a bowl with 1 tablespoon water, until wilted, or replace with 1 tomato thinly sliced or a handful of microgreens. When peeling boiled eggs, it is easiest to run them under the cold tap as you carefully remove the shell.

Serves 1


1 cup spinach, silverbeet or kale leaves

2 boiled eggs, peeled

½ tsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp cottage cheese

To serve

1 slice wholegrain bread, toasted

1–2 tsp pumpkin seeds

1–2 refined sugar free gherkins or cornichons, thinly sliced (optional)


2. Heat a fry-pan on medium heat and wilt spinach with 2 tsp water for about 1 minute, until wilted and water has evaporated. Alternatively, place leaves and water in a small, microwave-proof bowl and cook in microwave for about 30 seconds, until wilted.

3. In a small bowl, mash boiled eggs with mustard and cottage cheese and season to taste.

To serve, top toast with smashed eggs and wilted greens. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and gherkins.
