Poached Eggs On Turkish Toast
PREPARATION: 10 MINUTES, COOKING: 5 MINUTES
6 ripe tomatoes, finely diced
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) ground sumac or paprika, plus extra to serve
freshly ground black pepper
1 Combine the tomatoes and scallions in a bowl. Add the sumac and season to taste with pepper.
2 Fill a large shallow saucepan or deep frying pan with water and bring to a boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to low, so the water is at a gentle simmer. Working with one egg at a time, crack the eggs into a cup and slide them into the simmering water. Poach for 3–4 minutes, or until the whites have set.
3 Meanwhile, split the bread horizontally, and cut it crosswise to make four square pieces. Toast each piece on both sides.
4 Remove the eggs from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain off the water. Place one egg on each piece of toast and spoon the tomato mixture on top. Sprinkle with extra sumac and serve immediately.
+ Substitute whole-grain pita bread for the Turkish bread, if preferred.
