Smashed Lemony Broad Beans on Toast

Serves: 2

This fresh tasting broad bean mixture is delicious on toast but can also be served as a dip or part of a salad.


  • 2 slices Bürgen Soya & Linseed bread
  • 2 free range eggs
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • For the bean smash;
    250g frozen broad beans
    8 mint leaves, shredded
    Finely grated zest and juice 1/2 lemon
    2 tsp olive oil

Cooking Method

  1. For the bean smash; boil the beans in a small pan for 3 minutes, drain and rinse in cold water. When cool slip them from their outer skins. Roughly crush the beans and mix with the mint, lemon zest and juice, olive oil and a little black pepper.
  2. Bring a shallow pan of water to the boil, crack an egg into a cup and gently add to the water, then repeat with the second egg. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Toast the bread slices and spoon over the bean mixture. Top each slice with a poached egg, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle over some chilli flakes.
