Healthy eating made simple and delicious.

Dippy eggs with veggies make for a more colourful version of the usual toast soldiers classic!


  • 2 medium eggs
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 asparagus spears
  • 1 baby carrot, cut into long thin sticks
  • ½ red or orange pepper, cut into long thin sticks


  1. Put the eggs in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 1 minute for a very soft-boiled egg and 2 minutes for a firmer white but still a runny yolk.
  2. Remove the eggs from the water to prevent them from cooking any further.
  3. Meanwhile, steam the vegetables of your choice until just tender (or boil for 4-5 minutes).
  4. Cut the tops off the eggs, season with black pepper and serve with the hot vegetable dippers.
  5. Smart tip: Instead of cooked veggies, try raw strips of pepper, courgette, celery or cucumber.
