  • 150 g broad beans

  • 15 g dried porcini mushrooms

  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 poached eggs

  • Salt and pepper


  • Place dried porcini in a medium-size bowl and add boiling water. Soak for 20-30 minutes. Then drain but keep the water.
  • In the meantime heat the olive oil in a medium-size pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add porcini mushrooms and broad beans. Season with salt and pepper, stir and add ½ of the soaking water. Cook for 5 minutes over high heat. The water needs to evaporate while the board beans cook.
