Poached eggs and tomatoes with parsley garlic oil on toast
- Fresh eggs
- Crusty bread
- Parsley and garlic oil
- Cherry tomatoes
- Salad leaves (peppery ones like rocket and watercress work well)
Put a few cherry tomatoes in a hot oven with a little olive oil, vinegar and salt until they're soft and the juices are caramelising .
I'm not going to go into how to poach an egg. There are a lot of different techniques, each bringing their own successes and failures. But the general idea is to crack a couple of eggs into a pan of simmering water and cross your fingers.
Toast and butter the bread. Throw the salad leaves, tomatoes, eggs, and big drizzles of parsley and garlic oil on top of the toast.
Season well with salt and black pepper. I like to sprinkle on a pinch of sumac for its lemony tang and pretty red flecks.
