Shallow casserole dish or pan 


5 eggs
½ bag spinach leaves
3 baby leeks, sliced thinly
1 cup shelled edamame beans, thawed
1 cup frozen peas, thawed

2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 tsp cumin seeds
Salt and pepper

To Serve:
2 tsp chilli flakes
Handful of dill, roughly chopped
2 New Zealand Avocados, halved and sliced
Crusty bread


  1. Use Shallow Casserole dish or pan.
  2. Add the cumin seeds to the pan and for a minute. Stir in the spinach, edamame and peas and fry for 1-2 minutes, until bubbling and hot.
  3. With a spoon make 5 wells for the eggs in the frying pan and crack the eggs in. Cover with a lid and cook until the whites are cooked through. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and take off the heat.
  4. Serve with chopped dill, chilli flakes and sliced avocados. Eat hot with your favourite crusty bread.
