Poached egg & soft goats cheese stew


  • 4 celery sticks
  • 1 leek
  • 2 small onions
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 400 grams tinned butter beans drained
  • 400 grams tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 1 Knorr Vegetable Stock Cube dissolved 250 ml boiling water
  • to serve 4 eggs
  • to serve 4 tablespoons soft goat's cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped


  1. Slice the celery, leek, onion and carrots, heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan and gently fry until soft.
  2. Add the fennel seeds and chilli flakes. Crush the garlic and add to the pan. When the garlic and fennel seeds begin to brown, add the beans, followed by the tomatoes and the stock. Simmer until the stew begins to thicken. This should take about 20 minutes.
  3. Five mins before the end of cooking time bring a medium sized pan of water to the boil. Break the eggs into cups. When large bubbles are breaking on the surface of the water, turn off the heat, lower the eggs into the pan and cover. Let the eggs sit for three minutes in the covered pan. This will give you firm whites but runny yokes.
  4. To serve, divide the stew between four bowls. Remove the eggs from the pan with a slotted spoon. Drain off any excess water. Place an egg on each of the bowls. Finish with a dollop of soft goats’ cheese and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

Knorr brings Flavour For All

In a bid to raise awareness of the growing issue of food poverty in the UK, Knorr has launched Flavour For All – a NEW project which aims to give more than one million people easier access to nutritious flavoursome meals by 2020.

Knorr will be supporting food aid organisations that are lifelines for vulnerable people, partnering with inspiring soup kitchens around the UK and The Trussell Trust foodbank network. Using its expertise in food and flavour, Knorr will be providing monetary support, products, equipment and help to upskill volunteers and guests through cooking classes that focus on how to create nutritious flavoursome meals that both save money and waste less. 

About Flavour For All
The Flavour For All Project will see Knorr providing monetary support to food aid organisations to help build the infrastructure to deliver nutritious flavoursome meals more easily, now and in the future. Knorr will also offer cooking lessons and toolkits, helping soup kitchens deliver nutritious flavoursome meals more easily, and help those reliant on food aid, by helping them to cook nutritious, flavoursome meals, save money and waste less.
Why Knorr?

As one of the world’s biggest food brands, Knorr believes it has a responsibility to help bring positive change to people’s lives. A nutritious flavoursome meal, coupled with how it’s prepared and consumed, has been proven to influence your physical and emotional well-being. However, many of society’s most vulnerable struggle to even put food on the table. With food poverty in the UK rising at alarming rates, Knorr is partnering with soup kitchens to support them in their vital work and help give more people easier access to nutritious flavoursome meals.
