INGREDIENTS

SOY EGGS X 1 ½ EACH

Cook the eggs in a pan of fast simmering salted water for 5- 10 secs and then place immediately into iced water to chill for at least 5 mins. Taka an egg at a time and crack them open on the board & then peel them underwater in the bowl as this makes it easier. Then place into the dressing below.
