These sesame and shallot egg pots make a wonderful meal. Recipe courtesy of Weight Watchers.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 125g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (60g) baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted (see tip)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 green shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 x 35g slices wholegrain bread, toasted
  • 2 tsp olive oil


  1. Add enough water to a saucepan or wok so the level is just under the steamer basket and bring to a gentle simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook mushrooms, stirring, for 2–3 minutes or until golden. Add spinach and cook until just wilted. Stir through half the sesame seeds.
  3. Divide mushroom mixture between two 2⁄3-cup (160ml) capacity ramekins. Carefully break an egg into each ramekin.
  4. Place ramekins in a steamer basket. Steam, covered, over simmering water (ensuring basket is not touching water) for 6–8 minutes or until eggs are opaque and just cooked through (steam for a little longer if you prefer a firm yolk).
  5. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds and shallot and serve with toast.


To toast sesame seeds, toss seeds in a small non-stick frying pan over high heat until golden. 5 ProPoints value per serve.

  • Yum !


  • Such a great photo. Looks amazing.


  • Beautiful ! I would add more sesame seeds as 1tsp between 2 persons is hardly a seed !


  • A lovely meal that is so light.


  • Oh this would be a delicious breakfast to have. I probably would be cheeky and sneak a bit of bacon in there too though.


  • Mushroom, spinach and sesame seeds are the most beautiful foods existing. To be honest, I can eat that all day !
