This recipe was invented out of necessity. While on the “ 100 mile Challenge,” TV show we were only able to eat foods grown and produced within 100 miles of our home. Very challenging to say the least. There were few breakfast foods other than eggs and yogurt; needless to say we were getting quite bored! Time was often tight, especially in the mornings. This was something really quick to prepare…we even ate it in the car a few times!
2c chopped spinach
4 slices of tomato
1 red pepper diced
1 clove garlic (finely minced)
4 slices of local cheese
salt and crushed dried red chilies to taste
You’ll need 4 medium sized ramekins. Place a slice of tomato in each. Then place equal amounts of spinach, red pepper, garlic, salt and chilies in each bowl. Crack an egg on top of each and then place a slice of cheese on top. Place bowls in a large pot and fill the bottom of the pot with water. Cover with a lid. Let steam for about 5 minutes or until the egg yolk is at your desired firmness.
You can eat this just as is or for a larger meal serve with a salad and some toast or fresh crusty bread. It doesn’t get any easier than this. You eat right out of the bowl you cooked it in, so there’s even less dishes!
