Soft Boiled Egg & Courgette Dippers - Recipe - Sano


Soft Boiled Egg & Courgette Dippers

A tasty alternative to bread soldiers for your soft boiled egg. The fibre content of the flax, as well as helping the movement of food through the intestines,  may assist with absorption of nutrients due to mucilaginous fibre that helps delay gastric emptying.
