A Simple Breakfast

Posted in:



Truth be told, I’m not usually a breakfast person. But this? Yeah, I could eat this every day.

I mean, anything with hummus has to be good, right? And the same goes with poached eggs. Man, I love me some poached eggs!

I got the idea from Bill’s vegetarian breakfast as it’s pretty similar assemblement (and believe me, their vegetarian breakfast is so good), and honestly, it’s so easy and tasty – like a decadent Sunday breakfast in bed without all the faff.

Shall I go on?

You only need a few ingredients for this:

  • Hummus (you could make your own if you desire, but sometimes you just want breakfast to be as easy as possible!)
  • Toast (any kind of toast you fancy – I reckon this would go well with a bagel too, mmm)
  • An egg (poached is best)
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • Spinach
  • Any other add-ons you fancy (sauteed mushrooms works really well for a bit of extra pizzazz)

And then all you really need to do is assemble everything! Cook up your toast, slather it with hummus, pop on some raw spinach, top with a poached egg, and drizzle with sweet chilli sauce.


Poached eggs seem really daunting, but trust me – they’re super easy once you get the hang of them. I boil up a pan of water that’s a little under half full until it’s bubbling, before turning it down to a light simmer. I then pop in about 2 or 3 drops of vinegar in the water, along with a couple of pinches of salt. The egg is then cracked into a small glass, before I hold the glass as close to the water as possible, and slowly tip it in to the water. Wait around three minutes, and it’ll be done! Sometimes access egg will float to the top (gross), but you can simply spoon this out.

This breakfast tastes really decadent, but as you can see, it’s so easy and it’ll be ready in five minutes, tops. Fairly healthy too! The sweet chilli sauce is what really makes it – who knew such a sweet sauce would go so well with egg?

So, what do you think? Think you’ll try this? Keep me posted!
