there are few things as wonderful as sharing your love of food with the people you love. For me; one of them is sharing the actual food off my plate. If you are similarly inclined; you are going to love this dish - not only is it the ultimate sharing food but its also a banger for a hangover! this dish will make you miss reckless varsity all nighters with friends; waking up for breakfast together while attempting to recall the night before. The sublime practicality of the one pot wonder - Less dishes = happiness!

It is one of those dishes where you just have to roll your sleeves up and tuck right in...dunk your bread and get messy. it can be had as any meal of the day really and is a wonderful all rounder. 

Sidebar; a suberb accompaniment to this dish (after a prodigious bender the night before) would be a bitchin' Bloody Mary. A personal tip: add a splash of orange juice to your tomato cocktail/ vodka basic to give it a little bit of extra oomph and vitamin C to replenish those lost reserves...


ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 4 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp cumin, ground
  • 4 eggs
  • Small handful roughly chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper

intructions:

saute onions gently in a little olive oil until translucent. add peppers, tomatoes, garlic and cumin stir until well combined and cook on medium low heat for 15 minutes stirring frequently.

once all cooked and soft, season well to taste, make holes in the mixture for the eggs and crack the eggs into them. cover with a lid and cook until your preferred egg doneness.

dose with a good glug of olive oil, sprinkle parsley and serve with crusty bread.
