Poached Eggs With Veggies And Pesto Parmesan Yoghurt

Serves 4

  • 3 zucchini, quartered lengthways
  • 3 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 4 x 55g eggs
  • 40g toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 2 x 35g multigrain bread slices, toasted and halved
  • PESTO PARMESAN YOGHURT
  • 60g parmesan, very finely grated
  • 100g Greek-style yoghurt
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tablespoon basil pesto

To make the pesto parmesan yoghurt, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Season with freshly ground black pepper, then cover and chill until required.

Preheat a large chargrill pan over high heat. Add the zucchini and asparagus in two batches and cook, turning occasionally, for 5-7 minutes each or until just tender and golden. Arrange on a serving platter and spoon the pesto parmesan yoghurt alongside.

Meanwhile, poach the eggs (in two batches) in a large saucepan of gently simmering water for 1-2 minutes or until the egg whites are just set but the yolks are still runny. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.

Place the poached eggs on top of the vegetables and pesto parmesan yoghurt, sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds and serve with the toast.
