Ingredients

  • 3 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 small slice wholemeal bread
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil spread

Make sure the water is boiling before you add the egg!

Method

  1. Put 2 tbsp of water in a small saucepan. Add the cherry tomatoes (quartered) and heat gently for 2-3 minutes, stirring often until the tomatoes are soft – then set aside.
  2. Bring another small saucepan of water to the boil. Gently place the egg into the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes. Once cooked, transfer to a bowl of cold water to cool down.
  3. Toast the bread, then spread with vegetable oil spread and cut into fingers.
  4. Peel the egg and slice into fingers.
  5. Serve the boiled egg and toast fingers on a plate, with the cherry tomatoes (mashed up) on the side.
Remember: introduce foods that can trigger allergic reactions one at a time, in small amounts.
