Eggs wonderful eggs - what a great way to start the day.
This recipe serves one, but can obviously be doubled up.
2 large, free range eggs
1 green pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
Pinch dried chilli flakes (add more or less, according to how spicy you like your food
½ tin chopped tomatoes (roughly 200g)
2tbsp grated strong cheese (Parmesan or a mature cheddar)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a small frying/omelette pan and add the diced peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally until softened (about five minutes).
Add the tomatoes, garlic and chilli flakes. Bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer and leave, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. You should be left with a thick sauce. Make two indentations in the mixture and crack the eggs in. Leave until the whites are set – about five minutes. (You may need to move the whites around a little to cook.)
Add a little salt and pepper and top with the grated cheese. Place under a pre-heated grill until the cheese is melted.
This is delicious with some salad on the side or on top of steamed broccoli. Allow roughly 10-15g carbs per serving."
