Tomato Spicy Eggs

Updated: Dec 5, 2020



Sundays aren’t Sundays without a hearty, healthy breakfast and all of us sat at the table. It’s my fav! A great Brunch idea. Missing these with friends and family.


Tomatoes are a major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.


The tomato is actually a fruit that belongs to the nightshade family, along with aubergines, peppers and potatoes. Tomatoes are a powerhouse of nutrients and are also

  • Good for your skin

  • Can help with blood clotting and wound healing

  • Can help reduce menopausal symptoms.. The list goes on.


Ingredients:

  • Ghee/oil

  • 1 onion

  • Garlic

  • Red chilli

  • Red and yellow pepper

  • 2 Tins of cherry tomatoes

  • 4 eggs

  • Fresh coriander


Method:

  1. In a pan add some organic ghee/rapeseed oil, and fry a finely chopped onion.

  2. Once soft and translucent, add a teaspoon of crushed fresh garlic, or more if you like things garlicky.

  3. Add a finely chopped red chilli. Remove the seeds if you don’t like it hot.

  4. Add a thinly chopped red/yellow pepper or I like half and half to give the sauce some colour and add some chopped coriander stalks too.

  5. Sweat this down for a few minutes and allow the flavours to infuse.

  6. Add 2 tins of tinned cherry tomatoes. I like using cherry tomatoes as they give a really lovely sweet intense flavour with no bitterness. #tesco

  7. Let this cook for a good 20 minutes. Make sure you keep checking on it and stirring to avoid burning.

  8. Transfer to a heavy duty deep frying pan.

  9. Make 4 hollows in the sauce.

  10. Very carefully crack 4 eggs in each of the dips you have made in the sauce.

  11. Put a clear lid on top and let it cook until it is to your liking. I like them runny but no gooey white bits!!!

  12. Scatter with loads of fresh coriander and serve in the pan for all to dip in with some crusty french bread.


You will not be disappointed! Heaven on a plate and soooooo nutritious.
