Egg mayo and spinach on sourdough toast

It’s not mayo as we know it, it’s a mix of Greek yoghurt, creme fraiche, mustard and lemon juice/vinegar, and it’s divine. The egg yolk imparts its golden hues. Anyway, here’s another brunch recipe that keeps you satisfied for ages – better to eat something tasty, substantial and satisfying than graze on lots of unsatisfying things.


  • 2 hard boiled free range organic eggs
  • A dessert spoon of full fat Greek yoghurt and a level dessert spoon of full fat creme fraiche
  • 1 level teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • a good squeeze of lemon or a dash of white balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt
  • a v large handful of fresh, washed, spinach
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • course black pepper
  • sourdough bread

Use eggs you’ve pre-hard-boiled or boil them for 10-12 mins then crack and peel under cold water before chopping into chunks. Pop the bread on to toast and the spinach into a small pan with some olive oil, to wilt.

Now mix the yoghurt, creme fraiche, mustard, lemon/vinegar and a bit of sea salt to make the ‘mayo’ before gently folding the chopped egg into it.

To serve, place the spinach on the toast then pile on the egg mayo and finish with a littlecourse black pepper.


Nutrition Info


Eggs are little packages of nutrition. They provide vitamin A, vitamin D, all the B vitamins, folic acid, and are a rich source of selenium (for thyroid function) and iodine as well as many other minerals. They are an excellent source of choline which helps our cells and nerves to signal, as well as with healthy construction of the cell walls.


Spinach, as well as being very high on Vitamins A and K, and manganese, has great ant-inflammatory effects – inflammation is a precursor to many diseases and conditions, including some cancers. The density of nutrients in spinach puts it at the top of the foods list for goodness.
