We’re in the midst of an Easter season, so here’s a perfect egg recipe for you – soft-boiled Dragon eggs. Fun, colourful and a tiny bit sophisticated🤓✌

All 3 eggs were cooked using natural colourants. You can have them soft-boiled, but you can also cook them for a little bit longer and have them as you wish.
