Grain-based salads are filling and nutritious, and work really well with fresh fruit, which adds colour, texture and taste.
Savoury French toast
Beat the eggs in a bowl, add a dash of milk and some salt and pepper.
Transfer to a shallow dish or plate. Soak the bread in the egg mixture for a few minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan on a medium to high heat and add the butter.
When the butter is starting to brown, add the eggy bread to the pan and fry for a couple of minutes or until the underside turns golden brown. Flip with a spatula and do the same on the other side.
Transfer to a serving plate, and while the toast is still hot, grate over some cheese and allow to melt slightly. Add a handful of chopped chives and serve immediately.
