(at time of publication)
- 4 eggs
- 2 bunches broccolini, trimmed, halved or 4 cups broccoli florets
- 2 cups green beans, trimmed
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 1½ tablespoons lime juice
- 2 x 250g pouches microwavable brown rice and quinoa

1 Bring a large, deep frying pan of water to the boil over a high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Use a large spoon to create a whirlpool. Carefully add eggs to the centre of the whirlpool and poach for 3 minutes for a soft yolk. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.
2 Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook broccolini and beans for 2-3 minutes, until bright green and just tender. Drain.
3 In a small bowl, combine tahini, 1 tablespoon of the lime juice and 1 tablespoon hot water. Heat rice following packet instructions and transfer to a large bowl. Add tomatoes, basil and remaining lime juice and stir to combine.
4 Divide rice among 4 bowls. Top with vegetables and a poached egg. Serve drizzled with tahini dressing.
