  • 2 free range eggs
  • 200g Arla cottage cheese
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cucumber, quartered longways
  • 2 vine ripened or Heirloom tomatoes
  • ½ tsp sumac
  • a handful mint, finely chopped
  • a drizzle of really good extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 flat breads


1 Pop the eggs in to boil. The perfect egg for this is a six minutes boil for a slightly gooey middle. Rinse them under cold water and peel, then dry and cut in half.

2 Mix the cottage cheese with the lemon zest, halve it and place each half on two plates making a well in the centre of each portion.

3 Grill, griddle or toast two flat breads

4 Between two plates add the halved eggs, cucumber and tomatoes and then top with the sumac, herbs, oil and plenty of black pepper and serve right away with the grilled breads
