  • 150 g millet
  • 2 tbsp mixed dried herbs
  • 150 g firm tofu

  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 60 g snow peas
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp flax seeds

  1. Bring the millet to a simmer in twice its volume of water and cook covered on medium heat for 18 minutes until all the water is absorbed. Fluff it with a fork, cover it again and leave it to rest for 10 minutes. Mix in the dried herbs.

  4. Boil the snow peas in 2 volumes of water for about 6 minutes or until soft.
  5. In a small saucepan, bring salted water to the boil. Add the eggs and cook for 4–5 minutes. Serve them immediately after peeling them.
  6. Put everything in a bowl, add the salad and top with the egg. Season with salt and pepper.


Snow peas can be found in most supermarkets or Asian food and grocery stores.
