STEP ONE: In a small pot bring water to a boil. Add 1 egg, a 1/2 cup of string beans, and 2 small potatoes to the boiling water. Remove string beans and egg from the boiling water after 15 minutes and place in a bowl of cold water and set aside. Wash a handful of cherry heirloom tomatoes and slice them in half.
