Green baked eggs might sound a little funny, but they’re actually an extremely tasty dish and are very good for you too! Packed with omega 3, the eggs are cracked into a pan surrounded by super greens, baby spinach, leeks and peas, so there’s definitely no chance of you missing out on your vitamin C.

 

Serve with a dollop of yoghurt, feta and garlic dressing for some added flavour and they’re ready to serve for a perfect brunch!

Ingredients

200 
g 
Birds Eye Peas
Birds Eye Garden Peas 375g
30 
g 
Butter
1 
tablespoon 
Olive Oil
2 
Leeks, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced
A bunch of Spring Onions, roughly chopped
Sea Salt Flakes & freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 
teaspoon 
Cumin Seeds
150 
ml 
Vegetable Stock
A good handful of Baby Spinach
4 
Large Eggs
For the Dressing:
4 
tablespoon 
Greek Yoghurt
100 
g 
Feta Cheese, cubed
1 
Garlic Clove

Method

  1. Mix the yoghurt with the Feta cheese, smashing the cheese with a fork to combine well into a chunky sauce.  Cut the garlic clove in half lengthwise and add to the yoghurt mixture.  Set aside.


  2. Heat a large sauté pan over a medium heat and add the butter and oil.  Once the butter starts to foam add the leeks and spring onion, season with sea salt and black pepper.  Fry the vegetables for 2 minutes, stirring until the leeks are soft.  Add the cumin seeds and vegetable stock and boil the mixture until the stock has evaporated.  Add the peas and spinach and cook for 1 minute until the spinach has wilted, then reduce the heat to a low to medium heat. 


  3. Make a well in the leek and pea mixture and break an egg into the space. Repeat with remaining eggs, then season each yolk with salt.  Cook the eggs for about 4-5 minutes over a low heat, or until the egg whites are cooked and the yolks are runny. 


  4. Remove the garlic halves from the yoghurt and Feta sauce and serve with the baked eggs. Serve with a wedge of lemon.
