You can add a shot of protein to any supper dish by topping it with a soft-cooked egg. Drop an egg into rapidly boiling water, time it for 5 minutes exactly, and transfer to cold water. Tap the shell gently with the back of a spoon (the egg is still soft) to peel it. Drop into a bowl of chicken soup or onto hearty grains.
