Soft boiled quail eggs, avocado butter

Ramona's Cuisine -


Use a draining spoon to put in all eggs at the same time as they will not all be cooked the same otherwise.
Boiling times for quail eggs I have to specify here that often the quail eggs are fairly small but their size also varies.
These timings are for medium sized cuties. • 70 secs (1’ and 10”) for soft • 90 secs (1’ and 30”) for medium • 150 + secs (2’ and 30”) for hard boiled
They are quick to boil right? tip:

How to Make Soft boiled quail eggs, avocado butter


  1. Place a pan with water on medium fire. Bring to boiling point. Add the quail eggs and boil the eggs to your preference. * (See timings in recipe notes). If you want them soft or medium keep a close eye on them.
  2. While the eggs cool place a pan on fire with a little butter or any oil. Put the sliced mushrooms in, a pinch of sea salt and cook for 2-3 minutes tossing them every now and again so that they cook on both sides. Set aside and use when ready to compile your toast.
  3. Place the cut, seeded and skinned avocado flesh on a plate and crush gently with a fork. This really needs to be ripe to perfection nice and creamy for this operation to be carried out smoothly.
  4. Assemble the toast, season to your taste and don’t forget to scatter a few pine nuts and currants on each. Enjoy the deliciousness of this awesomness!
