- 70g frozen broad beans
- 30g frozen peas
- ½ avocado, chopped
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- pinch of chilli flakes
- ½ medium cucumber, diced
- 2 tsp chopped fresh dill, plus extra to garnish
- sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 large egg
- 2 slices sourdough bread, toasted
- 50g soft goat’s cheese
- 1 small handful rocket leaves
- 70g smoked salmon
- olive oil, to drizzle
1. Fill a small saucepan with water, add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Add the broad beans and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle. Gently squeeze each bean out of the shell, so that you are left with the brighter green bean.
2. Refill the saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Add the peas and cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
3. Place the broad beans, peas, avocado, lemon juice, lemon zest and chilli flakes in a food processor and pulse until a chunky paste has formed. Transfer to a bowl, add the cucumber and dill and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
4. Place the egg in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring the water to the boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 4 minutes. Remove the egg from the pan with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of iced water. Leave for 1 minute, then tap the egg gently to crack the shell and peel.
5. Meanwhile, toast the bread to your liking.
6. Place the toast on a serving plate, spread over the goat’s cheese. Top with the rocket, bean smash and smoked salmon. Carefully break the egg in half and place on top of the bruschetta. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Drizzle over the oil and garnish with extra dill. Enjoy!
