This recipe is inspired by The Green Queen Cafe in Stockholm, where they serve a mean avocado smash and poached egg breakfast with delicious sauce. The creamy avocado and soft yolk are balanced by crunchy toast, radishes and nuts. To spice it all up, drizzle with fermented miso and carrot dressing or your favourite hot sauce! Poaching eggs can be intimidating until you’ve learned the technique, but it’s very easy. Bring a pan of water to a simmer, whip up a good swirl in the water and let your raw egg gently float into the stream. After a few minutes you will have a silky smooth warm egg.

- 1 free-range egg
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the miso and carrot dressing makes 200 ml (7 fl oz)
- 4 tbsp white or yellow miso paste
- 1¾ fl oz (50 ml) rice vinegar
- 1½ fl oz (40 ml) extra-virgin olive oil

How to Make It
- Mix the ingredients for the miso and carrot dressing until smooth. Put the radishes and tomatoes in a bowl with the green leaves. Drizzle 1 tbsp lemon juice over the prepared avocado and smash the flesh with a fork. Lightly season with salt and pepper and add to the bowl.
- Fill a pan with water and bring to a simmer over a medium/high heat. Gently crack the egg into a cup. Create a swirl with a whisk in the simmering water and carefully slip the egg into the swirl in one smooth movement. Let the egg firm for 4 minutes, then gently remove it from the water with a slotted spoon. Add the egg to the bowl. Season to taste. Top with the salted, chilli nut sprinkle and a drizzle of miso and carrot dressing. Serve with toast.
