Spinach with Eggs

(Ispanakli Yumurta)

Spinach with Eggs
1 pkg frozen spinach (300 gr), chopped or fresh baby spinach
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 pinch crushed red pepper
Red pepper
3-4 eggs

Saute the onion with olive oil for 4-5 minutes over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the garlic, saute until the smell comes out. Then add the spinach, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper & cook for another 5 minutes while stirring occasionally. Make room for the eggs in the middle of the spinach. Crack the eggs and cover. When the egg whites are cooked, take off the heat. Do not overcook the egg yolk. Sprinkle salt, pepper and red pepper over the eggs.

Serve this dish while still hot with bread on the side. It is great to have for brunch or as a light lunch:)

This is very similar to my Sunday brunch: poached egg on steamed spinach with a bit of toast. This weekend I think I'll add onion, garlic and red pepper to the mix. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

I am going to try this recipe soon. I am Asian, but my Turkish fiancé requests some native food in our menu like this one.

Thanks Binnur! I'm subscribing to your blog to easily check more recipes.
