Any Dr Seuss fans will appreciate any recipe where 'green' and 'eggs' appear I'm sure. This is a favourite of my children, combining two family favourites - soup and eggs. You need seriously fresh eggs for best poaching results. While I haven't ever been bothered to take the extra step, I think some crumbled crispy bacon or pancetta would be delicious with this.
- 250 millilitres water
- 250 millilitres frozen peas
- 1 scallion
- black pepper (optional)
- salt (if using homemade stock)
- 1 large chicken broth cube
- 3 eggs

This is a throw together kind of soup. I generally don't measure but work on approximately equal measures of water/stock to frozen peas.
