Serves 2



  • Chopped fresh chilli or a pinch cayenne pepper

  1. Put a pot of water on to boil for poaching the eggs.
  2. Once it has come to the boil, drop in the green leaves to wilt for a couple of seconds, then pull them out into a strainer to drain.
  3. Add the eggs into the water to gently poach for about 3-4 minutes, or until the white has firmed.  
  4. Smash the avocado with the chickpeas, season with salt and pepper, perhaps add some chilli, then stack onto serving plates.
  5. Add the drained, wilted greens and scatter over the pumpkin seeds.  
  6. Top with the cooked eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  7. As an alternative, cook the greens in a frying pan to wilt with a splash of oil, tip out onto plates, then fry the eggs.
