  • 3 large zucchini
  • 4 eggs poached
  • 16 cherry or plum tomatoes halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tsp truffle salt
  • pepper to taste


  • Poach your eggs (3-min eggs are my favorite), then set aside in a bowl or luke-warm water.
  • Using either a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, slice your zucchini into thin ribbons. Lightly brush olive oil on both sides, then sprinkle with truffle salt and pepper.
  • Heat your grill pan on medium-high heat. Place the zucchini ribbons on the grill pan for approximately 30 seconds, then flip. Remove and divide evenly between four plates.
  • Place your tomatoes on the plate, then top with a poached egg and a few leaves of basil. Add any additional pepper before serving.
