Simon Walker’s veggie breakfast of champions is accompanied with hearty hummous and guacamole with a kick


1. For the hummous: in a frying pan, sweat the onion and pepper in a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat until soft. Stir in the lemon juice, ground cumin, ground coriander and smoked paprika. Lightly fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the garlic, chopped coriander and half of the cooked chickpeas.

2. Pour the mixture into a food processor and blend to a smooth paste. Transfer to a bowl, then stir in the remaining whole chickpeas and add the tahini and sweet chilli sauce to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

3. For the guacamole: mash the avocado with the lemon juice, cumin, chopped coriander, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chilli and tomato.

4. For the vegetarian breakfast plate: heat the oil in a griddle pan until smoking, then add the mushrooms and tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes until soft.

5. To serve, pile the griddled mushrooms, tomatoes, and sourdough toast on a plate, and place a poached egg on top of the toast. Spoon the hummous and guacamole on the side, or serve in small bowls or ramekins.
