Here’s another great way to start your weekend – just add some soft-boiled eggs and you’ll be coming back for more in no time.

Radishes are one of the best compliments any dish can receive.

Adding a peppery flavour to breakfasts, lunch and dinner, they not only bring a touch of red or pink to what may usually be otherwise plain-looking meals, they’re also full of nutrients – 100g of them will provide you with 24% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C.

The recipe below, courtesy of, has found a way to give us some nutrients while we have our favourite meal of the week – brunch.

With just four ingredients, you’ll have this whipped up in no time at all – and it may even become one of your new favourite ways to start the day.

Radish butter on rye toast with soft-boiled eggs

(Serves 2)


  • 6 French breakfast radishes
  • 50g butter, softened
  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 4 medium eggs (at room temperature)


  1. Grate the radishes on a fine grater and place in a bowl lined with kitchen roll (this will absorb any liquid that comes out of the radishes). Beat the butter with a fork until it is very soft then add the radishes and combine well with a good twist of black pepper and a generous pinch of sea salt.
  2. Bring a pan of water to a simmer, add the eggs and simmer for 3 mins then put the lid on and turn off the heat, leave to stand for 2 mins.
  3. In the meantime, toast the bread and while still warm spread generously with the radish butter.
  4. Cut the slices into soldiers and serve with the soft-boiled egg.
