This colourful and flavourful dish is ideal for a spring weekend brunch. It's delicious as it is, left as a dairy-free and gluten-free dish, or if you fancy something more substantial, you can add some sharp feta and crusty sourdough bread to serve.
Serves 2 on it's own or 4 as part of a larger meal
4 tbs greek or coconut yoghurt
1 green chilli
10g parsley Juice of 1 lime
1.5 garlic cloves
1 tbs coconut or ground nut oil
1 onion, sliced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
200g asparagus, woody ends snapped off & sliced in half
200g long stem broccoli, sliced in half
Method for Green Shakshuka
Turn the grill onto high.
Put the yoghurt, chilli, herbs, lime juice and 1/2 garlic clove into a food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside.
Put a large frying pan over a low to medium heat and add the oil. Cook the onion with the cumin, ground coriander and 1 crushed clove of garlic for 3-4 minutes until soft and fragrant.
Add the broccoli and asparagus to the pan and cook for 5 minutes more. Finally add the spinach and cook until it has started to wilt.
Make 4 wells in the mixture and crack each egg into them. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the bottoms of the eggs have set before putting the pan under the grill for another 2-3 minutes until the top has set.
Once the eggs are cooked, drizzle over the herb sauce and serve immediately.
