ingredients

  • 225g fresh spinach
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 4 tbsp fat-free natural fromage frais
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices wholemeal toast from a small 400g loaf
  • 4 slices ham, visible fat removed
  • 4 poached eggs

method

  1. Place the spinach in a large pan with the lemon juice and cook for 2 minutes until wilted. Drain off any juice and keep warm.
  2. For the sauce, season the fromage frais with the tarragon and a little salt and black pepper. Heat gently for 1-2 minutes until warm. Don't boil or the fromage frais will separate.
  3. To assemble, place a slice of toast on each plate and cover with a slice of ham. Pile on the spinach and top with a poached egg. Spoon over the sauce and serve immediately.
