Recipe's preparation

    Smoked salmon avocado salsa
  1. Place spring onion/shallot, smoked salmon, and spinach leaves (if using) into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5, increasing speed gradually from speed 1 to speed 5.

  2. Place chopped mix into a small bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper and carefully combine with lemon juice and avocado. Set aside.

  3. Poached egg pots
  4. Place 700g water into mixing bowl and heat 5 min/Varoma/speed 2.

  5. Place spinach into Varoma dish, sprinkle with salt and place Varoma into position. Steam 4 min/Varoma/speed 2. Place wilted spinach into TM basket to drain and squeeze out any residual liquid using the spatula. Retain water in the mixing bowl.

  6. Place half the wilted spinach into the base of two 7cm ramekins, top each with half the cream and Parmesan and finish with a cracked egg. Place ramekins into Varoma dish and cook 8-10 min/Varoma/speed 2.

  7. Using an oven glove, remove ramekins from Varoma and place onto two serving plates. Top with reserved salsa and serve.


Serve Poached egg pots with toast, fresh bread or flat-bread.
Cooking time for the poached egg pots will depend on how you like your eggs cooked. Decrease or increase cooking times accordingly.

You can double this recipe to serve four people. A maximum of three ramekins will fit into the Varoma dish at any one time, so you will need to cook them in two batches.

    Delicious breakfast!

    Beautiful recipe, I eliminated the cream and cheese but it would be just as beautiful (or even better) with them I'm sure!
