This isn’t a fasting day for me, but having counted the calories in this I thought it was worth putting it up as a light meal suitable for fasting days if you’re in the habit of splitting your calorie allowance over two meals. It’s got all the flavours of classic eggs Florentine and hollandaise sauce, but is a lot lighter in calories!

Eggs Florentine with feta

Recipe for Low-calorie eggs Florentine with feta (serves 1)

40g spinach, stalks trimmed off and shredded
30g feta cheese, diced (optional)
2 eggs
1 tsp butter
1 tsp lemon juice
ground black pepper

Total calories per serving: 250 (175 without the feta)

Method: Bring a pan of water to a gentle simmer and break in the two eggs. Melt the butter in another pan and gently cook the spinach. When the eggs have been simmering for two minutes, turn off the heat under their pan and stir the pepper and lemon juice into the spinach. Pile the spinach on a small plate, scatter the feta over it (if using) and top with the two poached eggs.

Simple and delicious!
