Toasted Brioche, Poached Eggs and Green Goddess Sauce

Serves 6


2 bunches fresh asparagus, trimmed 

6 slices of brioche or 6 brioche rolls

60g baby spinach leaves

2 tsp white wine vinegar

6 eggs, at room temperature

Green Goddess Sauce

1 small ripe avocado, halved, stone removed, roughly chopped

¼ cup whole egg mayonnaise

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp finely chopped tarragon

2 tbsp finely chopped chives

1 shallot, finely chopped


To make Green Goddess Sauce, place avocado, mayonnaise, lemon juice, tarragon, chives and shallot into the bowl of a small food processor. Pulse until smooth and well combined. If mixture is too thick, add 1 tbsp of warm water at a time and process until desired consistency. Season with salt and white pepper. Transfer to a bowl.

Thinly slice asparagus lengthways with a small sharp knife or vegetable peeler. Place into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 1-2 minutes or until just tender. Drain. Toast brioche and place onto serving plates. Top with spinach leaves.

Bring a deep frying pan of water to the boil. Reduce heat to low and add vinegar to pan. Break an egg into a cup and slide into water. Repeat with another egg. Cook for 3 minutes or until white of egg is just cooked. Remove egg with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining eggs.

Place egg onto spinach and top with asparagus, salt and cracked black pepper. Serve with green goddess sauce on the side.
