Simple to make and very good to eat, this easy to follow recipe really will make midweek family cooking a breeze.

Heat the oil in a large pan and sauté the onion for 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and bacon and cook for a further 5 minutes until crisp.

Stir through the kale and lentils and cook for 4 minutes. Keep warm.

Fill a medium pan half full with water and bring to the boil. Crack an egg into a ramekin. Add the vinegar to the water, reduce to a simmer and whisk the water to create a whirlpool. Quickly slip the egg into the whirlpool and simmer for 3 minutes. Repeat with the 3 remaining eggs.

Spoon the salad onto 4 plates and top each with a poached egg. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
