September 15th, 2014 | 1 comment


Hello lovely,

I wanted to share this recipe with you today, because it is seriously so good!!!  It’s an oldie but a goodie, and one that seemed to be a favourite amongst the participants in my 21-Day Wholefood Cleanse.

I especially love it because…

a) it is quick & easy

b) its nutritious

c) its versatile (it works well for a lazy Sunday morning brunch, OR as a quick & easy dinner!)

d) everyone seems to enjoy it…even kids!

The Recipe…

Time it takes: 15 minutes
Serves 2


  • 1 medium brown onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed (to taste)
  • 250g mushrooms chopped – (use a combo of whatever mushrooms you like!)
  • 80 g baby spinach (or other greens)
  • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes, halved (or diced big tomatoes!)
  • 1 handful of parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 free range /organic eggs
  • Half an avocado


  1. Sauté onion, garlic and mushrooms for about 5-minutes in 2 teaspoons coconut oil or butter over a medium heat until golden.
  2. While it is sautéing, place a pot of water onto boil, with about 2 inches of water covering the bottom.  Add a dash of apple cider vinegar to help the egg whites to set and not break apart.
  3. Crack each egg into the simmering water and allow to poach for 2-3 minutes, or until the whites have set and the middle still looks runny
  4. Add the spinach and tomato to the mushroom, and then season with a little ground pepper and sea salt.
  5. Turn the heat off and allow the tomato & spinach to cook in the heat of the mushrooms for a few minutes, before transferring to the plates.
  6. Squeeze over a little lemon juice.
  7. Remove eggs with a slotted large spoon and place on top of your mushroom hash.
  8. Place avocado slices and parsley on top of the eggs, and another squeeze of lemon if desired.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy.
