Serves 4


1 large ripe avocado

1 tbsp lemon juice

60g crumbled feta cheese, goat or cow milk

2 tbsp chopped parsley

1 tbsp chopped dill

100g cherry tomatoes, chopped

8 eggs

1 tbsp white vinegar

2 thick slices sourdough bread


1. To make the smash, place avocado halves in a bowl and fork through to create a rustic mash.

2. Add lemon juice, crumbled feta, chopped parsley, dill and chopped cherry tomato. Mix well.

3. For the poached eggs, bring a medium shallow saucepan of water and vinegar to the boil. Break egg into a small dish.

4. Reduce the heat and bring the water to a simmer. Carefully slide in the egg.

5. Repeat this process with remaining eggs.

6. Allow 3-4 minutes for poached eggs with firm whites and soft runny yolks. Cook longer for a firmer egg.

7. Remove with a slotted spoon, rest on a paper towel to absorb any excess water.

8. To serve, smear smash on toasted sourdough and top with two poached eggs.
