Warm Runner Bean Salad with Poached Egg
Prep time:

Total time: 

Serves: 2

  • 1 pack fresh runner beans
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 Eggs
  • Lemon (1 tbsp Juice and Zest)
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

  1. In a pan of boiling water, cook the runner beans. This should only take 2 mins as you want them to be on the raw side of crunchy.
  2. In a separate pan of boiling salted water, poach the eggs. I normally swirl the water with a spoon and then drop in one egg at a time. This will take about 3-4 mins as you want the egg yolk to remain runny.
  3. Mix the lemon juice, oil, zest, salt and pepper to make a dressing.
  4. Toss the runner beans in the dressing while still warm.
  5. To serve, place the runner beans on a plate, top with grated parmesan, then 2 poached eggs, and sprinkle with cracked black pepper and salt.
