How to do:


  • Wash and dry flat parsley. Add hemp seeds, peeled garlic, flat parsley, a dash of olive oil and the juice of half a lime to your food processor. Pulse until smooth and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • In a pot, bring 1L water to a simmer. Carefully break an egg into a cup. Add the apple cider vinegar to the simmering water. Using a spoon, make a swirl in the water. In one movement, gently pour the whole egg into the water in the middle of the swirl. For a soft egg, poach for approx. 3 min. and 4 min. for a more firm egg. You can cook more eggs in the pot at the same time. Remove with a slotted spoon.

  • In the bowl, combine zucchini, avocado and the hemp seed dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
