  • 5
    chives, finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • olive oil
  • 250
    baby vine tomatoes

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Place tomatoes onto a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
Roast in oven for 15 minutes or until soft and juicy. Remove and set aside.
Heat a grill pan until hot and grill courgettes and aubergine slices for a few seconds on each side or until you achieve slight grill marks.
Remove from pan, season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice and drizzle with a little olive oil. Toss to combine and set aside.
Grate potato into a clean bowl and squeeze dry by squeezing all the liquid out.
Add the chopped herbs and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a pan with a little olive oil and fry tablespoons full of the mixture for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. (Press down slightly to achieve a thin rösti).
Meanwhile bring a small pot of water to the boil and add vinegar.
Reduce heat to a simmer and using a spoon, stir water in a circle, creating a whirlpool.
Carefully crack egg into the centre and allow to poach gently for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from water using a slotted spoon and carefully place on some absorbent paper to drain any excess water.
Place 1 rösti onto a plate and top with grilled vegetables, roasted tomatoes, a few slices of goats cheese and a poached egg.
Season with salt and pepper, garnish with wild rocket and serve immediately.
