    Wholesome Messob teff porridge with roasted vegetables and poached egg

    Porridge for lunch or supper? Why not! This savoury porridge is perfect accompanied by roasted vegetables and fried or poached eggs.

    Serves 4


    160g / 4dl Messob Teff porridge powder
    600 - 700ml / 6-7dl water
    1-2 tsp ground turmeric
    1 tsp sea salt
    80g / 2dl tasty, mature cheese
    2 tsp Italian herb mix
    2 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper
    250g cherry tomatoes, ideally a mixture of colours
    1 red pepper
    1 red onion
    200g spinach
    Fresh coriander (optional)
    Olive oil
    Sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper


    1. Mix the Messob Teff porridge powder, water, turmeric and salt in a large pan, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, for approximately 5 minutes over a medium heat.
    2. Stir in the cheese and herbs and stir until the cheese has completely melted. Remove from the heat.
    3. Halve the tomatoes, cut the pepper and red onion into slices and pan-fry or roast in a little olive oil until they start to colour.
    4. Wilt the spinach, in batches, in a small amount of the oil in a frying pan.
    5. Divide the spinach between 4 plates, add the porridge to each plate and top with the roasted vegetables, sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander. Season with the sea salt flakes and black pepper.
    6. Fry or poach the 4 eggs to accompany.

    To Poach an egg:

    4 super fresh eggs
    1 litre water
    1/2 tbs white wine vinegar

    Bring the water, and vinegar to simmer in a wide, shallow pan. Do not allow to boil.
    Break each egg into a cup, stir the water to create a gentle whirlpool (to help the egg white wrap around the yolk) and slowly tip into the simmering water. (The eggs are best cooked separately)
    Cook for roughly 3 minutes (bringing the white together using a slotted spoon if necessary) until the white is set.
    Lift the eggs out of the water with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper before serving.
