Yield: 1 serving

Looking for a healthy breakfast that’d make your Mom proud? Try vitamin and iron-rich spinach, anti-oxidant garlic, eggs and our delicious Romesco.

Breakfast is very often a Romesco affair for me, so it shows up on a lot of egg dishes in my house. Sometimes I’m looking for a good healthy cooked-veggie way to start my day, and this is a winner.

Garlic is a fabulous health-booster, but it’s awfully strong when raw, so I like to soften it up (in texture and bite) but sautéeing it a little (don’t brown it or it’ll turn bitter). I like to sauté the spinach just enough to get a little soft but I don’t leave it too long or it’ll just wilt completely.

A little sharp parmesean cheese and some cracked pepper round this out perfectly.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 eggs
  • Spinach, about two handfuls
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 yellow onion sliced in strips
  • 1 tbsp ghee (or butter or oil of your choice), divided
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • 1/2 avocado cut in strips for garnish if desired
  • 1-2 tbsp Saucí Romesco

Preparation:

  1. Bring the ghee or butter to medium heat in a non-stick pan.
  2. Sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes or until soft and starting to get translucent.
  3. Add the garlic for about a minute or until just soft but not even close to brown yet.
  4. Add the spinach and toss around for another minute or two until it just gets soft.
  5. Set aside the spinach mixture in your bowl or plate
  6. Melt the other 1/2 tbsp ghee in the pan and fry the egg(s).
  7. *Note: if you put a lid on the pan, and even add a few drops of water, you can trap some heat to cook the white part.
  8. When the egg is done, add it atop the spinach, and add some sliced avocado if desired.
  9. Sprinkle some nice sharp parmesean cheese over the top add salt and pepper.
  10. Spoon out some Saucí Romesco and enjoy!
