Meatless Monday – Moroccan Eggs


Serves 2 generously

First there were Turkish Eggs, now we’ve moved along to Morocco! My obsession with eating breakfast foods for dinner continues. This dish is  surprisingly delicious and really filling. It’s a firm favourite at our house for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I used a batch of Annabel Langbein’s Moroccan Tomato Sauce for the base but it’s a bit too tart for my tastebuds, so we tempered the flavour with a tin of tomatoes. However, this dish would work just as well with a jar of store bought pasta sauce jazzed up with some chilli, cumin and oregano.


2 cups Annabel Langbein’s Moroccan Tomato Sauce

1 tin chopped tomatoes

4 eggs

3-4  handfuls baby spinach

6 tablespoons Greek Style yoghurt

Coriander leaves, to garnish

How to:

  1. Heat the sauce and the tomatoes in a large frying pan.
  2. Stir in spinach until it wilts.
  3. Then, using a wooden spoon, create 4 pockets in the tomato mixture. Break each egg into a cup and then pour into the pocket into the pan. . Cover the pan and cook the eggs over a low heat until just set.
  4.  Sprinkle the eggs with coriander and serve straight from the frying pan with a big dollop of  yogurt.
