  • 2 bunch Dutch carrots
  • 2 eggs, large, free range
  • 200 g hummus
  • 40 g pistachio kernels
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste



  • Cut off the stalk of the Dutch carrots, leaving 2cm on the top for presentation. Cut of the long stringy root at the bottom. Peel the carrots.
  • Bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add the Dutch carrots. Larger ones will take about 10 minutes whilst the smaller ones will take 8 minutes. Less for the really tiny ones. When cooked, drain the Dutch carrots and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  • On a grill pan with no oil, char the Dutch carrots on medium to high heat.
  • In a small saucepan, bring water to the boil. Slowly immerse room temperature eggs with a slotted spoon or ladle into the saucepan. Boil for exactly 5 ½ minutes. Remove from the boiling water and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Peel the eggs and set aside.
  • Roughly chop pistachio kernels.


  • On a flat plate, smear all the hummus to cover the whole surface.
  • Sprinkle ½ the chopped pistachio kernels on the outer rim of the hummus. Don’t put any in the middle.
  • Place charred carrots haphazardly on the plate to create a “messy’ look.
  • Sprinkle ¼ of chopped pistachio kernels on top and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the eggs in half and place on top of the carrots. Season with pepper only.
  • Sprinkle the remaining pistachio kernels.
  • Add small droplets of olive oil around the outer part of the plate on the hummus.
  • Serve immediately.


  • If you’re not able to find Dutch Carrots, you can use normal carrots. Just cut them up in thinner slices.
  • You can buy flavoured hummus if that is your preference e.g. garlic, lemon or paprika.
  • Add more eggs if you like and cook them longer if you’re not a fan of soft-boiled eggs. You can certainly poach them too if you prefer.
