Our recipe for poached eggs with ricotta and sesame dukkha is a delicious and healthy breakfast choice.

  • Sesame seeds, any type, 2 teaspoon(s)
  • Ground cumin, 1 teaspoon(s)
  • Ground coriander, 1 teaspoon(s)
  • Paprika, dry powder, ½ teaspoon(s)
  • Chilli flakes, ¼ teaspoon(s)
  • Eggs, raw, 2 extra large egg(s)
  • Burgen Bread, Soy-Lin, 1 slice(s), toasted
  • Ricotta cheese, reduced-fat, 50 g
  • Baby spinach, 20 g


For the dukkha, scatter the sesame seeds in a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook, shaking pan for 2-3 minutes until they start to colour. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika and chilli flakes, cook shaking pan for 1 minute until spices are warm. Remove to a jar, season. Cool before securing the lid.

Half fill a deep saucepan with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Crack 1 egg onto a saucer. Slide egg into the water, working quickly, stir the water to form a gentle whirlpool until the egg starts to float. Repeat with remaining egg. Simmer, without stirring, for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel.

Toast bread and spread with ricotta. Top with spinach leaves and poached eggs. Sprinkle with dukkha.

TIP: You can easily double, triple or x 4 the dukkha recipe. It will keep 3 months in the fridge in an airtight jar. Its great over eggs, fish or chicken.
