ingredients

  • 4 large flat or Portobello mushrooms
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 250g baby spinach leaves
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 1-2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices of lean ham, visible fat removed
  • 8 thin slices tomato
  • 1 tbsp crushed pink peppercorns

For the sauce:

  • 8 tbsp fat-free natural fromage frais
  • 25g reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • Pinch of mustard powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
  • 200ml hot vegetable stock

method

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-hot. Remove the stalks from the mushrooms and place gill-side up on a grill rack. Season lightly, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and cook under the grill for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, place the spinach in a large pan with the lemon juice and cook for 2 minutes until wilted. Drain off any juice, season with the nutmeg and keep warm.
  3. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Stir in the vinegar, reduce the heat to a very gentle simmer and carefully break the eggs into the water. Cover the pan and let the eggs poach over a very low heat for about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully transfer the eggs to a large bowl of cold water.
  4. While the eggs are cooking, make the sauce. Place the fromage frais in a bowl with the cheese, mustard powder and tarragon. Season to taste, add the stock and use an electric hand whisk to blend well.
  5. Transfer the sauce to a small saucepan and heat gently for 1-2 minutes until warm (don't let it boil or the fromage frais will curdle).
  6. Place a mushroom on each plate and add a slice of ham, 2 slices of tomato, some spinach and a poached egg. Divide the tarragon sauce over the top and serve sprinkled with the pink peppercorns.
