Spring Greens Broth

Breakfast AND  lunch all sorted!

Any time of day is the right time for this versatile broth.

Terrific for breakfast or lunch, why not make both at the same time? Strain off the broth and keep it for lunch either at home or pour into a flask for on the move. Then pile the greens onto wholegrain toast for breakfast.

Doubly delicious! A fried egg on top sets it off a treat whether you are eating the combined broth and greens together or on top of the strained greens on toast..


Make ahead of time and microwave for 1-2 minutes on High to reheat.
