Toast with pea purée and soft-cooked egg

Toast with pea purée end soft-cooked egg

Avocado toast is a popular healthy recipe for a simple and quick meal. In France, a small number of avocados are grown but usually the avocados in French supermarkets are imported. Their quality is very variable; from hard unripe to already dark end over-ripe so not always edible and smashable. 

I have seen some French recipes which replace avocados with peas. The following pea purée is my Mediterranean twist as it has a healthy amount of good olive oil. For a simple lunch, serve the bread slices with a mixed side salad.

2 servings

2 slices of rye bread or whole wheat toast

300 ml peas, fresh or frozen

A pinch of pressed garlic

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. fromage blanc or thick Greek yoghurt, 0% fat

2 soft- cooked eggs

Cook the eggs for 6 minutes in boiling water. Peel them and set aside.

Microwave the peas for a few minutes until defrosted. Add the garlic, some black pepper, olive oil, and fromage blanc. With a hand- held mixer, purée the peas into a nice consistence.

Divide the pea-purée on the bread slices and top with a soft- cooked egg.
