This is a delicious simple, healthy dinner or brunch. It’s become a firm favourite with me when I need something quick and easy but with lots of flavour. Use the best eggs you can: I’m planning to try this with duck eggs next time I can get some.


  • 4 large ripe tomatoes
  • 125g baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves,


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Score a cross in the top and the bottom of the tomatoes and put them in a bowl of boiling water for a minute. Remove them, peel the skin off and dice the flesh.

Place the spinach, garlic, spring onion, chilli, parsley and olive oil in a bowl.
