Servings 1 person


  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 5 kale leaves
  • 1 handful green beans
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Put the green beans and kale on to simmer with a pinch of salt
  • Meanwhile yourself a wide, deep pan and fill it with boiling water from the kettle. Bring it to a light simmer over a medium heat add a pich of salt.
  • Grill bacon on a med to high heat for aprox 4 mins each side or as crispy as you like it.
  • Crack one of your eggs into a cup and gently pour it into the water in one fluid movement. Repeat with the rest of the eggs. Depending on your pan, a really soft poached egg should take around 2 minutes and a soft to firm one will need 4 minutes (it depends on the size of the eggs). To check whether they’re done, remove one carefully from the pan with a slotted spoon and give it a gentle push with a teaspoon. If it feels too soft, put it back and give the eggs a minute or two more in the water to firm up.
  • When they’re ready, remove them to some kitchen paper to dry off and a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Remove veggies and strain to serve slice avocado and sprinkle pumpkin seeds over the top.
