Purple Sprouting Broccoli with soft egg and capers

Hungry this evening lots of purple sprouting in the vegebox eggs and capers in the fridge , easy to throw this together with a steamer over the boiling eggs . Would love to have used a poached egg but sadly a cooking feat I have not yet mastered embarassing to admit yet true .

This was truly delicious eaten with my finger dipping the broccoli in dressing and egg and note wholly vegetarian

    Oh, I just love purple sprouting broccoli and this looks like a delicious combination. About the poached eggs: I think freshness makes a huge difference to success. I’ve noticed a big difference since having my own ducks/hens. Mcgee in ‘On Food and Cooking’ is very interesting on the science of cooking eggs.
