Four Ingredient Recipe: Poached Egg and Houmas

Challenged to make a recipe using only 4 ingredients, thought this might be tricky but really gets you thinking. For mine you will need:

1 Egg

Sourdough Bread

Houmas (of your choosing)

Crispy Fried Onions


Toast your chucky slice of bread and crack your egg in to a cup, boil a large pan of water till you have a good rolling boil.


Swirl the water till you have a whirlpool effect, and slowly lower the egg in, poach for around 3 minutes, for a runny middle, this depends on your eggs, size and whether from the fridge or not, but should be about right. After cooking drain on a piece of kitchen roll.


Cover your toast in your favourite humus , I am using the smoked Aubergine dip for Moorish Dips

Place your egg on top of the toast and then sprinkle over your crispy fried onions. This makes a lovely lunch or brunch 🙂 Enjoy
