Poached egg - option 1 (boiled water)

  • Bring a medium sauce pan filled with water to a boil, then add vinegar.
  • Meanwhile, carefully crack the egg into a small cup.
  • Lower heat until water is simmering. Gently lower the eggs into the simmering water. Using a slotted spoon, bring the filaments of white around the yolk throughout the cooking process so that they clump together. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, remove the egg with the slotted spoon and place it in a bowl of iced water.

Poached egg - option 2 (microwave)

  • In a microwave-safe ramekin, put 4 tablespoons of water. Gently break the egg into the ramekin.
  • Microwave everything at maximum power for 45 seconds (or 50-55 seconds if your microwave does not go beyond 900W).
  • Remove the egg , by pouring the contents of the ramekin into the slotted spoon and place it in a bowl of iced water.

Making the toast

  • Wash the radishes. Cut them into thin slices.
  • Arrange a toast on a plate. Spread the toast with the avocado mashed, dig a slight well in the middle to hold the egg securely. Arrange the poached egg, arrange the radish slices randomly and sprinkle the toast with microgreens of your choice.
